Audi is refreshing the A5 series, the A5 line-up is entering the 2012 model year with new, advanced technologies and an updated design. Audi A5 models are now more distinctive.

Some changes about the 2012 Audi S5 models include: engine, quattro drive and infotainment for even more efficiency, sportiness and intelligence. The updated design visually underscores the technical expertise involved in these versions. The rear lights and the headlights have been redesigned and are optionally available in xenon plus technology with homogenous LED daytime running lights.

Minor changes also find their way inside of the vehicle with a new steering wheel, new paint covers, revised center console buttons, and an updated ignition key. The selector lever for the automatic transmission is also new, as is the button for the optional Audi drive select system and the controls for the high -efficiency air conditioning system, the multifunction steering wheel, and the white illumination on the car’s display units.

The interior of the 2012  Audi s5 models reflects the Audi brand culture. It is now more elegant than ever with new steering wheels, including an option for a flattened ring, new steering column stalks and with narrow chrome clasps framing the control elements. A button is used to directly adjust the optional seat heating and seat ventilation in three stages. Also updated were the ignition key, the selector lever for the automatic transmission, the button for the optional Audi drive select system and the controls of the high-efficiency air conditioning and multifunction steering wheel. All displays are now illuminated in white.

The 2012 Audi S5 will be powered by a supercharged 3.0 liter TFSI engine with a total output of 333 HP. This may leave a few people shaking their heads, but greener is leaner and this new engine will provide an improved fuel consumption of about 20%. If the environmental aspect isn’t enough, then rest assured that the 2012 Audi S5 Convertible will still deliver impressive performance numbers.

    This is what I have been waiting to see out automakers: a complete vehicle based around an electric drive train. Not only is it efficient in its propulsion, it utilizes efficient design in its physical structure as well. I hope this makes it to production, not that I am planning on buying it, but it will put the other automakers on notice
