The new 2018 Audi A5 coupe makes a surprise debut in North America at the Luxury and Supercar weekend 2016 in Vancouver. It was an exclusive party displaying crème de la crème of automobiles, drink, food, art and fashion. Even one can think it as a smaller version of Quail. It is held in California, Carmel by the Sea. Despite of so much population of California it was a delight and great surprise that this year Audi Canada chose the Vancouver’s show to be the North American premiere of the 2018 Audi A5 coupe versus Monterey.
It is based on the same platform of A4 sedan. As the actual production cars will not go on sale until 2016 November in Europe. So this pre production European model is equipped with options, color schemes and trim packages. All these may not be available for the Canadian spec models. After seeing the Audi A5 2018 the most notable change is how it has now a very clear differentiation from the A4.
In pictures may be the differences look subtle. But the nose of 2018 Audi A5 coupe is more than any emotional design with little higher headlights, wider and lower grille and power bulge on the hood. Due to these muscular cues now it has a more aggressive look which befits a two door sporty coupe. The price of the 2018 Audi A5 coupe is not yet announced. You have to wait a few months. But it is expected that the model will cost slightly more compared to the outgoing model.
