Exterior of 2017 Audi A5 Coupe
Since the carmaker will put the A5 Coupe on a strict diet, we believe that they will use different materials for body structure. Their main goal is to reduce overall weight for 220 pounds and they aim to achieve this by using aluminum panels, hollow-spoke wheels, and drivetrain ancillaries. Even though the carmaker hasn’t revealed the way the coupe will look like, heavy camouflage suggests that changes are numerous and significant. The vehicle will come with sharper body lines for sure. The upcoming model will follow the footsteps of the recently launched A4. As for the exact changes, it will get revised headlights and taillights which now look much sharper. Among the changes are bigger air intakes too and so are the thinner taillights. Simply put, the 2017 Audi A5 Coupe is a prime example that the German carmaker mastered the art of designing.
