Product Overview

Audi A5 Cabriolet (Type 8F) is a compact executive convertible in production from 2008 to 2011, whereupon it received a facelift. It was available with a range of inline-4 and V6 engines that displaced 1.8 to 3.2 liters.
The successor to the B7 A4 Cabriolet, the A5 Cabriolet is based on the 8T A5 Coupe. This helps the car in styling terms with improved proportions, especially with the top down.
Drivetrain-wise, the A5 uses an evolution of the engines found in the B7 A4. Notably, the new 7-speed DCT replaced the 6-speed automatic transmission for quattro AWD models. FWD models continued to use the horrendous CVT.
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the Audi A5 Cabriolet comes with multi-link suspensions at all four corners. This provides the best cornering performance and tunability, at the expense of cost and a little bit of durability.
