Audi is amping up its fans by teasing the second-generation A5 before its June 2 debut.
The 2017 Audi A5 will debut at the automaker’s HQ in Ingolstadt, Germany, and we’ve already spied the new coupe testing, but the latest teaser images give us a sneak peek at what’s under the camouflage.
In the teaser campaign leading up to the coupe’s debut, Audi has created nine hashtags with the leading tag being #NowThatsACoupe. Others highlight some of the A5’s standout features like #NowThatsLighting, #NowThatsDamping, #NowThatsCornering, #NowThatsPioneering, #NowThatsMuscles, #NowThatsSixCyilnders, #NowThatsIconic and #NowThatsCamouflage. From these excessive hashtags and teaser GIFs, we can see that the A5 will get updated LED lighting and Audi’s fantastic digital dashboard, and will be powered by a V6 engine.
The next-generation A5 will be built on the company’s new platform, the same one underpinning the new A4, which means it will lose a lot of weight. It has been reported that the new A5 will be nearly 300 pounds lighter than its predecessor. We’re not expecting a huge departure in the styling department, but we are expecting that the new coupe will get all the latest tech like including Audi’s safety and driver assistance features.
