Audi has slotted in a new model at the bottom of the Audi A5 range – one powered with a 1.8 litre TFSI engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. Note this is not the old but popular turbocharged 1.8 litre Audi engine that is in the B7 A4 1.8T currently sold in the Malaysian market, but a newly developed 1.8 TFSI.
The 1.8 litre TFSI turbocharged direct injection engine makes 170 PS at a rather low 4,800rpm and 250Nm of torque from 1,500rpm up to 4,800rpm, giving the baseline Audi A5 a 0 to 100km/h acceleration of 8.4 seconds.
