Audi has received a 2014 Best Resale Value Award from Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com, the leading provider of new and used vehicle information. The annual Kelley Blue Book Best Resale Value Awards recognize vehicles expected to maintain the greatest proportion of their original list price after five years of ownership. The 2014 Audi A5 was named Best Resale Value in the Luxury Car class.

"Audi always strives to produce innovative, top performing, luxury vehicles that retain their value. We're proud that the 2014 Audi A5 has received a stamp of approval from Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com," said Scott Keogh, President, Audi of America.

The Audi A5, available in Coupe and Cabriolet models, offers drivers and passengers exceptional performance and safety. For the 2014 Model Year, the A5 -- powered by the 2.0 TFSI® turbocharged and direct-injected, four cylinder engine -- gets an increase in horsepower to 220. Torque remains unchanged at 258 lb-ft. The Audi Convenience package -- which includes Bluetooth® technology, HomeLink®, Audi Music Interface, and the driver information system -- is now standard on 2014 A5 models. The Audi A5 model line continues in 2014 with A5 and S5 Coupe and Cabriolet models, which continue to set standards for sportiness and efficiency in the mid-size segment of the premium market. In addition, the recently-introduced RS 5 Cabriolet -- which combines track-tested engineering with the freedom of open air driving -- joins the successful RS 5 Coupe for the 2014 Model Year.
