The updated 2020 Audi A5 and S5 range have been revealed ahead of a public debut at the Frankfurt motor show.
Revealed in Sportback, Coupe and Cabriolet body styles, the changes for 2020 bring the A5 into line with the wider Audi portfolio.
Changes to the exterior of the A5 include a wider and flatter Singleframe, new ventilation slits, larger air inlets, a new sill and revised rear diffuser inserts.
LED headlights will also be standard with matrix LED headlights and fancier matrix LED headlights with laser light and dynamic light sequencing available, depending on the version.
A5 Cabriolet versions will feature a classic fabric top which acts as an acoustic hood. It is capable of opening in 15 seconds at speeds of up to 50km/h.
Customers will choose from twelve paint finishes, which includes the new district green metallic.
Internally A5 models will get the latest 10.1-inch MMI touch display and a revised version of Audi's customisable 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit digital instrument cluster.
A range of four- and six-cylinder turbocharged petrol and diesel engines will be available in the A5 with four of those options to feature mild-hybrid technology.
Every A5 will come standard with an automatic transmission in the form of either a seven-speed S tronic or eight-speed tiptronic with torque converter. The entry models will be front-wheel drive, while higher-spec variants will get the quattro all-wheel drive system.
Depending on the market, the updated S5 will be offered in 3.0 TDI and 3.0 TFSI versions.
The S5 TDI will be available across all body styles with power coming from a 3.0-litre V6 turbo-diesel with mild-hybrid tech that produces 255kW and 700Nm. An eight-speed automatic sends drive to all four wheels.
According to Audi, the S5 TDI will complete the 0-100km/h dash in "under 5.0 seconds" on its way to an electronically governed top speed of 250km/h. Fuel consumption for the Coupe is listed at 6.1-6.2L/100km on the combined cycle.
Outside of Europe, the S5 TFSI Coupe and Sportback get a 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 producing 260kW and 500Nm. Audi says in Coupe form it takes 4.7 seconds to hit triple figures from a standstill.
Audi's Australian arm has said the updated A5 and S5 range are expected to arrive locally during the second quarter of 2020. Full details will be announced closer to the launch date.
