Serving Bedford, OH

Audi’s luxury cars are highly regarded for balancing luxury and performance across every model. With your attention focused on the Audi A5 and the Audi A6, you can expect both models to live up to the highest standards in these critical areas. However, the compact A5 and the midsize A6 are strikingly individualized in exciting ways. Our Audi Bedford associates want to support you as you get acquainted with these premium cars.


The 2023 Audi A5 is available in three body styles: a convertible, a two-door coupe, and a four-door hatchback. The coupe and convertible have a 261-horsepower, four-cylinder, turbo 2.0-liter engine. The hatchback receives 201 horsepower from its turbo 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine. All body styles have all-wheel drive and seven-speed auto transmission. In comparison, the 2023 Audi A6 sedan has two powertrain options. The first engine is the same 261-horsepower system offered in the A5. The other option is a turbo 3.0-liter V6 system that gives you 335 horsepower. The A6 has all-wheel drive and a dual-clutch, seven-speed auto transmission in all trims.


The specific look of the 2023 A5 will depend on the body style selected. However, all body styles show off a strong swoop through the pinstripe-accented hood, a hexagon-like grille, stunning air intakes, and pointed, radiant LED headlights. Across the sides of the A5, the lower panels are deeply accented, and the upper portion of the panels has a lighter accent line. The 2023 Audi A6 expresses its sophistication from nose to tail with its striking profile and road-hugging stance. The sides of the A6 are smoothly rounded and enhanced by deep accentuation on the lower portion of the panels. The nose is commanding, with wide, horizontal bars running across the hexagon grille. The air vents and the LED-outlined headlights both follow the contour of the grille.


The 2023 A5 is spectacularly appointed with elite features. Some of its features at select or all trim levels include a Bang & Olufsen audio system, an automated parking system, heated front, and rear seats, traffic sign recognition with the navigation system, a head-up display, a surround-view camera, adaptive cruise control, driver’s side memory settings, a three-zone climate control system, leather upholstery and more. The A6 is available with all of these features. It also has massaging front seats, soft-close doors, dual-pane acoustic glass, multi-colored cabin lighting, and other advanced features in select trim levels.
