Being able to spot the upcoming 2017 Audi A5 Cabriolet is not an easy task, but a team of spy photographers roaming the streets of Germany has managed to capture some and they just look awesome.
The photo quality is good, but Audi has made sure that their car is completely camouflaged making it extremely difficult to identify the design elements they have incorporated in it. From the looks of it, it appears the designers didn’t want to take any chances with the cabriolet. They have maintained a conventional approach to the car right from the front grille to the rear and its tail lights. With an honest opinion, we should say that it is kind of boring and not the best one around.
Being a cabriolet, buyers and car enthusiasts may want the 2017 Audi A5 Cabriolet to sport a more stylish design so that they could move the roof off during a long trip. The car is exceptionally conservative, but it is difficult to make a decision so early because it is yet to have some final changes before being launched in the market. The bold character line found in the prototype has been used in this upcoming car. It has a single frame grille and the LED tail light is a thin strip that you can hardly identify through the heavy camouflage.
Volkswagen’s MLB components have been used in the new A5 car which is evident from the interior spy shots. The front engine, front and all-wheel drive technology used by VW is found in this car as well. It seems to be built on the aluminum and carbon fiber architecture which makes the vehicle lightweight at all the right places, but robust and durable in the long run. It helped the car shed at least 110 kilograms of its total weight. The total number may not sound significant, but it does make the car fun to drive and increases the overall performance.
The 2017 Audi A5 Cabriolet is expected to be powered by a 1.4-liter drivetrain which delivers 500 Nm torque. Another model may use the 3.0-liter V6 engine which is already being used in the S4.
According to new reports, Audi is working on creating the right design for the A5 Cabriolet which will go into production next year. It will probably be ready to ship towards the end of 2016 and should reach the customers in 2017.
