Now that the A5 coupe has been revealed, you can't have an A5 lineup without with the convertible model. Today, Audi has revealed its new and improved A5 and S5 cabriolets and even more interior room, a stiffer body (40% stiffer than the previous model), and they've even added seat belt microphones for improved voice recognition with the top down. 

The acoustic roof opens in 15 seconds and closes in 18 seconds and can operate at up to 31 mph. Engine options (Euro Spec) will include a 252 hp 2.0L TFSI engine, a 2.0L TDI with 190 hp, and a 3.0L TDI with 218 hp. 3.0 TFSI engines will top out the range on the S5 model with a 354 hp six-cylinder that can get from 0-62 in 5.1 seconds. The A5 and S5 Cabriolet arrives in Europe next March and a US release is to be announced.
