Audi Singapore wants your clicks with a new Lazada shop for accessories, a virtual showroom and a sale offering up to S$19k off its cars, plus the facelift A5 Sportback ‘launched’


SINGAPORE

Audi Singapore has gone big in a ‘hands off, fingers on’ way. Today it announced the opening of its new virtual showroom, plus the virtual debut of the facelifted Audi A5 Sportback, and a sale to get fingers clicking.

The new virtual showroom – the Audi Online Showroom – is located at www.audisale.sg, and currently offers 10 models from the Audi range, with more cars to be added later on. You can select a car, customise it with options and colours, and place a booking for it through the site.

The models on sale now are:

The Audi A1 Sportback – we just reviewed it, click the link below to read that.

As usual, click on the links above to read our reviews of each car (or its closest model). Customers will need to sign up to create an account, and make a S$1,000 deposit for booking purposes. As with all other online car sales in this time, delivery only takes place after June 1, 2020, when the lockdown is lifted. 

Audi also announced a new channel to buy its official accessories and lifestyle products, the Audi Flagship Store that’s now operating on online retail channel Lazada.sg.

You can even buy Audi car care products at its LazMall shop


Audi says there are more than 100 items to choose from, drawn from its Audi Collection and Genuine Accessories range. Check out the store here

The facelifed Audi A5 Sportback


And what’s a first for the lockdown period here, a new car has been unveiled as well. It’s the facelifted version of the A5 Sportback, Audi’s version of a four-door coupe, but with a hatchback door.





Now available for booking at the virtual showroom mentioned, the car sees its mid-life facelift. Like the recently facelifted A4 Sedan which is due to go on sale here later this year, the A5 Sportback sees mild tweaks to the exterior, while the interior sees an upgrade to the new MMI system and more. 

Interior of the A5 Sportback looks just like the facelifted A4 sedan’s

On sale here is a 2.0-litre turbocharged model with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox that’s front-wheel drive, though it only makes 150hp – in contrast to the 190hp of the 2.0-litre Audi A4. Like the sedan, it’s likely the 2.0 is the smallest engine choice for Singapore. Indicative fuel consumption is 6.4L/100km, with performance figures and VES banding to be confirmed.





The car is expected to retail at less than S$200,000 with COE and interested customers can look at the car and make their interest known at the virtual showroom page.



Audi Singapore says this is just the beginning of its online foray in 2020, with the A5 Sportback only the first of a raft of new models arriving in 2020. It will launch four cars from its Audi Sport range, all of them high-performance RS models. 

The models are the new RS 4 Avant, the RS 5 (Coupe and Sportback), the RS 6 Avant, and the RS 7 Sportback. 

2020 Audi RS 4 Avant

The RS 4 Avant is Audi’s ‘traditional’ go-faster wagon, based on the A4 Avant (recently facelifted as mentioned), it has a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 engine with 450hp. We tested the current model and it’s one of our favourite high-performance cars in the segment.

The RS 5 family has the same powertrain as the RS 4 Avant, and includes the two-door Coupe and five-door Sportback model. The RS 5’s haven’t shone as much as in the past, read our review of the current Coupe and Sportback to find out why. 

2020 Audi RS 6 Avant


The RS 6 Avant is Audi’s meanest, fastest wagon and based on the current A6 range – it has a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 with 600hp and will have no trouble giving sports cars a view of its big boot. 

2020 Audi RS 7 Sportback

The last RS model to come to Singapore in 2020 is also a first-timer – the RS 7 Sportback, which is the nutty-roid-raged version of the elegant Audi A7 Sportback four-door coupe. Like the RS 6 it has 600hp and a twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8.

Those who have a quattro-flavoured need for speed, Audi says, will have the chance to register their interest and plonk their money down at the Online Showroom will be the first in Singapore to take delivery of the cars.
