The 2016 Audi A5 Coupe has been speculatively rendered by Tobias Hornof. Needless to say, he used as foundation the all-new A4 (B9) Sedan but obviously chopped off the rear doors and made the roofline more sloped towards the back to enable a sleeker silhouette suitable for a premium coupe. The model is expected to see the light of production day sometime next year and is scheduled to hit U.S. dealerships as well.
It’s unknown at this point whether the A5 Coupe will be stylistically different at the front than the A4 or whether Audi’s designers have decided to make modifications only to the rear half of the car while keeping the front virtually unchanged.
Just like the sedan, the new A5 should lose up to 100 kg (220 lbs) thanks to the new MLB Evo platform even though the model is bound to grow in size a little bit and offer a more spacious interior cabin. It will carry over the same array of engines as the new A4 and will spawn both S5 and RS5 derivatives, but these will join the range later during the car’s life cycle, possibly towards the end of next year.
The A5 Coupe will shortly be followed by an A5 Cabriolet and an A5 Sportback which are both probably due in 2015.
