2016 Audi A5 Coupe Specs and Release Date – The 2016 A5 will feature a sporty exterior design and can also be equipped with LED headlights and a futuristic-looking interior complete with HUD or head-up display. It will also feature an autnonomous driving function. Like its predecessor, the A5’s platform will be based on the Volkswagen Group’s updated MLB Evo, which employs a longitudinal design. However, its frame will make use of more aluminum material, making the car about 220 lbs. lighter than the A4.
The specs of the engine are still unconfirmed. But Audi will most likely go with the upgraded versions of the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and the supercharged 3.0 liter V6, which can be found in the 2013 Audi S5. 2016 Audi A5 Coupe Specs and Release Date

Our sources in Ingolstadt predict a bolder front end with the now-trademark Audi singleframe grille, plus more aggressive and larger air intakes. Expect to see the A5 coupe first, in spring 2016.
