The 2016 Audi A5 coupe will be based on the MLB-Evo platform and will likely be about 100 kg lighter.

The second generation Audi A5 coupe will be underpinned by the Volkswagen Group’s MLB-Evo platform and likely be around 100 kg lighter than the outgoing model. The all-new Audi A5 should be longer and wider, and have an increased wheelbase. The exterior would be almost identical to the A4, save for the structural changes and a few distinctive styling elements. Inside, the A5 will share almost every part with the A4 models.

Transmission choices may include 6-speed manual, 7-speed S tronic and 8-speed tiptronic. Both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive drivetrain configurations will be available to choose from.
