A look at the official photos of 2016 Audi A5 will show that there are four padded and bolstered seats to fit in four adults. The car happens to be a two door convertible. In the event that the car is carrying full capacity, the additional passengers will have to sit in the rear. The inside of the A5 is well planned and the quality of materials used is of a high quality. There is ample leg space. 1L bottle holders can be found in the doors as well a glove compartment and console. The beauty about the tops for this model is that they rise fast so in the event that rain starts suddenly you never have to worry about getting wet. You can cover yourself almost within seconds. The top really adds to the appeal of this convertible if you ask us. There is nothing better than a little sun to the face and well, a little bit of fresh air while driving right?

What the Competition is like

While Audi may have been ruling the roost since the inception of its A5, the competition hasn’t just stood off at one side to watch. No, BMW have unleashed a comeback strike through their legendary 4 series. Mercedes have also stuck their finger into the pie with their C class edition and so have Cadillac and Lexus. The competition has never been tougher in this category of cars.

Release Date and Price

The price for this model has been set at a base starting cost of USD$40,500. The release date has been scheduled and planned for unveiling at the March 2016 Geneva Auto Show.
