2013 Audi A5 and S5

By - January 10th, 2012

Within the last couple of years, the Audi A6, A7 and A8 have each received a facelift that subtly refined their external styling and upgraded their power plants, drive-trains and technology. Now it’s the A5’s turn. Beginning at the front, the A5 and its sportbacked twin, the S5, now sport a new grill and lighting design popularized by earlier A6 models as well as a chiseled hood that  sharpens at the iconic Audi logo. The interiors have also been refreshed with multifunction streering wheels, upgraded gear levers and accessory controls, and a new selection of upholstery colors and inlays, including aluminum trigon, walnut, or a fine natural grain ash finish. Under the hood, while the A5’s still has the same 2.0 TFSI 4-cylinder engine, the S5 now sports a 333hp, 3.0-liter TFSI supercharged V6, but both are now equipped with quattro and S-tronic transmissions. While there’s still no word about its price, be on the lookout for the new 2013 Audi A5/S5 to hit showrooms next year.

I have a 2009 A5 Coupe and I love it. I want to order a new one 2012, or 2013 but I want the Comfort Package which is offered in the A5 Cabriolet, which has the ventilated A/C seats. It comes in the A5 Cabriolet but is not offered in the A5 Coupe for some reason. It is very disappointing and I can't get a straight answer from Audi. They say it's because the Cab is hot with the top down and that's why, yet they offer the ventilated seats as part of the Prestige Package in the new A7 which is a sedan, not a Cab. Go figure!!!! It makes no sense and is very disappointing.
