Default Audi A5 2.0 TFSI gets 208-hp and 36mpg

Quote:
Audi announced today that its new 2.0 TFSI engine is now available for the Audi A5. The new A5 2.0 TFSI can be ordered now with front-wheel-drive or quattro all-wheel-drive starting at £28,760 ($56,806) or £30,285 ($59818) respectively. Deliveries will begin in August.
The 2.0 TFSI is a new turbo based on the 1.8 TFSI from the A4 and produces 208 horsepower with a peak torque of 258 lb-ft. 0-62 comes in 6.9 seconds with a top speed of 155mph. Combined fuel-economy is rated at 42.8mpg in the UK which is an outstanding 35.6mpg on U.S. shores. That’s about 10mpg less than the miles per gallon king, the Toyota Prius.

The new Audi A5 2.0 TFSI comes standard with xenon headlamps with LED strip daytime running lamps, 17-inch seven-spoke alloy wheels, 3-zone electronic climate control, a 10-speaker Concert CD audio system, full Milano leather upholstery and rear acoustic parking.
Any love for the U.S.?

Press Release:
ALL-NEW HIGH-TORQUE 2.0 TFSI ENGINE IS A PERFECT FIT FOR AUDI A5
- Latest Turbo FSI engine joins Audi coupé range and reiterates that fun and frugality are far from mutually exclusive
- A5 2.0 TFSI now available to order in front-wheel-drive or quattro all-wheel-drive forms priced at £28,760 OTR and £30,285 OTR – first deliveries in August
- All-new Turbo FSI engine is based on 1.8 TFSI from new A4, but adds Audi valvelift technology for improved engine ‘breathing’ to maximise performance and efficiency
- 211PS @ 4,300 to 6,000rpm, 350Nm @ 1,500-4,200rpm
- A5 2.0 TFSI 0-62mph in 6.9 seconds, top speed 155mph, combined mpg 42.8, CO2 154g/km
A newly developed Turbo FSI petrol engine available from this week for the Audi A5 provides the sought-after coupe with yet another choice blend of pace and pence-per-mile efficiency. The new 211PS A5 2.0 TFSI can be ordered in either front-wheel-drive or quattro permanent all-wheel-drive forms for £28,760 OTR or £30,285 OTR, and will reach its first UK customers in August.
The new high-tech 2.0-litre unit is derived from the already much praised 1.8 TFSI engine introduced recently in A3, A4 and A5 models, but takes its efficiency a step further still through the use of new Audi valvelift technology. By employing sliding cam units mounted on the intake camshaft that allow for more variation in the degree of valve lift, the engine is able to ‘breathe’ even more effectively, switching to a higher cam profile when strong acceleration is required, or a lower profile that requires less fuel and air compression when throttle usage is more relaxed.
The new 2.0-litre TFSI unit delivers 211PS from 4,300rpm and a very impressive 350Nm torque maximum from just 1,500rpm – more even than the 3.2-litre V6 FSI unit also powering A5 models. It enables the front-wheel-drive A5 2.0 TFSI with six-speed manual transmission to cover the 0-62mph sprint in 6.9 seconds, reach a top speed of 155mph and return up to 42.8mpg according to the combined cycle test. And despite doing full justice in performance terms to the purposeful styling of the A5, it also shows restraint where emissions are concerned, with an output of 154g/km for the front-wheel-drive version.
Standard specification for front-wheel-drive and quattro all-wheel-drive versions of the new A5 2.0 TFSI includes xenon headlamps with trademark LED strip daytime running lamps, 17-inch seven-spoke alloy wheels, 3-zone electronic climate control, a 10-speaker Concert CD audio system, full Milano leather upholstery and rear acoustic parking.

Interesting price point for a turbo 4 cylinder, luxury or not.

if you honestly expect the base model a5 to cost $60k, you believe the conversion rates too much. ive never seen them actually convert literally.

Should be simple just see how much the 3.2l AWD version costs in pounds and see what percentage the 4 cylinder price is of that and apply it to the price of the US version.

A fully loaded with nav S5 is not even $60k and A5 can barely get to $50k so a 4 cylinder version should at least be a couple grand less, guessing a starting price of $36.9k. Test drove an A5 this past weekend, really liked that car even with only 265hp.

Yeah, you can't just convert the prices. A base 335i coupe is £34500, so if this A5 costs £29k-£30k, it would probably be $35k-ish in the US.

On par with a 335i in price if lacking in performance.

This vehicle probably won't get 36 MPG under EPA tests. I say 30 at best.

Since it's not sold in the US you obviously didn't. Unless you are talking about the V6 version. Put this motor in an A3 with a 6spd and AWD and I'm sold.

Even if the EPA mileage were 30 combined that would be amazing. What I am really looking forward to is when they get this engine into the next GTI, or the next A3. Then we might see some really nice MPG figures.

And some really fast 0-60 figures.

If it's RWD or AWD, I could be convinced to go RWD but FWD just sucks period.
