We’re big fans of the Audi S5. It might not be the sharpest car in the segment, nor the fastest. But its combination of style, speed, handling and comfort is hard to beat. But that hasn’t stopped the folks in Ingolstadt from tweaking it further to make it even better. Though, its Cabriolet model could use some improving, as its rigidity and handling leave some to be desired. Thankfully, the Cab will be updated wth the rest of the model line and some new spy photos have caught the newly facelifted Audi S5 Cabriolet with its top down. (We don’t own the spy photos but they can be seen here)
In these new spy photos, we see the Audi S5 Cabriolet facelift doing some testing with its top down. Though, the driver must have been a bit shy of the paparazzi, as they put the top up once the cameras started snapping.
Aside from the top antics, we get to see the slightly updated face and butt of the new Audi S5 Cabriolet, albeit covered in camouflage. At the front, it gets a similar treatment as the Audi A4, just without the bizarre looking headlights. As far as we can tell. The headlights have some camo on them as well, so there’s a chance they also get those odd light strips at the top.
The new Singleframe grille is shorter and wider than before, giving the front end a lower, sportier look. At the back, the taillights look mostly the same but the entire rump is covered in camo so it’s really hard to make out any other details. It still keeps its quad exhausts, though, which is the most important part.
If you look closely at the interior, you can sort of spot its new MMI screen on the dash, similar to that of the newly facelifted A4. It will be the new Touch Response MMI screen but it might be a bit tricky to use due to its placement, which doesn’t seem as ergonomic as the placement in the Audi A6, A7 and A8.
We already really like the Audi S5 so hopefully new updates only make it better. We’re eager to find out.
