2020 Audi A5 Adds Innovative Technologies to Model Line

Audi has updates its second generation of the A5 model line in 2020 with elements of the new design language from flagship models to highlight the distinctive body style. The all-new MIB 3 infotainment system enters the full model line which includes the A5 Coupe, Sportback, and Cabriolet, and the S5 Coupe, Sportback, and Cabriolet.

The automaker has made many changes in the Infotainment features which are as follows:

• Horizontal lines dominate the interior of new A5 models, leading to the large MMI® touch display which serves as the focal point of the instrument panel. The large 10.1-inch touchscreen (1,540 x 720 pixels) features the all-new MIB 3 infotainment system, can offer drivers a connected experience

• The new third generation modular infotainment platform operates up to ten times faster than the MIB 2 system, allowing for quicker processing speeds and graphical resolution in order to provide a better overall user experience. This provides significant improvements in terms of route planning and traffic forecasts, for example. Acoustic feedback helps enhance the driver’s ease of using the touchscreen when the vehicle is moving, and available handwriting recognition with whole-word input offers an easy way to enter information such as telephone contacts or navigation destinations

• Natural-voice control helps turn the A5 into an intelligent travel assistant. Drivers can speak both commands and questions, to which the A5 will provide comprehensive feedback through on-board stored data or available information from the cloud

• Available S line interior package (Coupe only) enhances the vehicle’s already sporty interior with a flat-bottom steering wheel with S badge, leather and Alcantara® seats, brushed aluminum inlays, and stainless steel pedal caps

Other highlights:

• The A5 model line offers a robust level of standard equipment including a panoramic sunroof (Coupe and Sportback), three-zone climate control, and the ambient LED interior lighting or available multicolor LED interior lighting plus package

• Available second-generation Audi virtual cockpit featuring a 12.3-inch display that offers HD resolution of 1920 x 720 pixels. The driver can choose between three viewing modes – classic, sport and dynamic. On S5 models, sport mode replaces classic mode as the default view, and an S Performance mode replaces dynamic mode, which brings the tachometer and speedometer to the front and center of the display and adds a boost gauge and lap timer function. The virtual cockpit helps to enhance the infotainment and navigating experience through the large Google Earth™ imagery or 3D city maps (requires Audi connect PRIME subscription) supported with 4G LTE (where available)

• Audi connect® packages feature available Verizon wireless unlimited connectivity and Wi-Fi- powered by Verizon’s 4G LTE network to deliver fast, secure in-vehicle internet access to drivers. With an active Audi connect® subscription, functions such as parking, weather updates and Yelp® review highlights are now integrated within the MMI and can be accessed through their own icons. Infotainment features such as internet radio streaming and Amazon Music (subscription required) are also accessible via the MMI via the Audi connect® mobile app

• Available Bang & Olufsen sound system with 3D sound, which delivers nearly true to-life surround sound through 19 speakers (20 speakers on Cabriolet), including a subwoofer and center speaker, and a 16-channel amplifier producing an output of 705 watts

• A full suite of standard and available driver assistance features, including Adaptive Cruise Control with Traffic Jam assist
