From what we can tell, the Audi A5 will feature an evolutionary exterior styling influenced by the new A4. There are new Matrix LED headlamps, bigger hexagonal Singleframe grille, redesigned bumper, moulded spoiler on the liftgate and sleeker LED taillamps.

The new A5 will be based on the MLB Evo platform sourced from the new Audi A4. It is expected to be around 100 kg lighter than its predecessor, thus aiding in fuel efficiency as well as performance. As for the interior, there are very little details, although its likely to feature a simpler design inspired by the A4. It will get Audi’s new MMI Touch as well as a Virtual Cockpit display inside.
