The other teaser (edited) reveals the headlamps flanking a wide hexagonal grille, and a body that appears to feature sleeker lines. It is claimed to be more aerodynamic than the outgoing model that has a drag coefficient of 0.29 Cd.

The new A5 will ride on Audi’s new MLB Evo platform that is shared with the new Audi A4. Expect weight savings of about 100 kg, thus improving fuel efficiency and performance. Speaking of performance, Audi will offer four- and six-cylinder TFSI and TDI engines from the new A4, as well as a 6-speed manual or an 8-speed automatic as transmission options. Top-end variants will be equipped with the Quattro all-wheel drive technology.
