As the title suggests, are there two versions of air conditioning available on the A5 as opposed to the S5, which in the Uk has three zone climate control as standard?

Is there a basic system, and a three zone upgrade with pollen filters etc?

Or are all cars equipped with the three zone system, with seperate temperature controls for driver and passenger?

The Audi A5 is equipped as standard with an automatic deluxe automatic air conditioning system.
The deluxe automatic air conditioning is a combination of a heating/ventilation system and a cooling system
for dehumidifying and cooling the vehicle interior.
you can choose from two different automatic air conditioning systems:
single-zone deluxe automatic air conditioning system
triple-zone deluxe automatic air conditioning system plus
Both systems are automatic air conditioning systems. They differ at first glance with respect to the air
conditioning control unit. The single-zone automatic air conditioning system is the standard version.
The air conditioning control unit of the single-zone
deluxe automatic air conditioning system does not
have its own display.
The selected settings are displayed via the MMI
screen only.
Nevertheless, the status line is continuously
displayed on the MMI screen so the driver
always has the selected settings in view.
In the air conditioning control unit of the singlezone
deluxe automatic air conditioning system, no
distinction is made between degrees Celsius and
degrees Fahrenheit.
The temperature adjustment directions are indicated
by the illumination of the rotary control; the ring
is illuminated blue in the direction of lower temperature
values and red in the direction of higher temperature
values.
The air conditioning control unit of the triple-zone
deluxe automatic air conditioning system plus has,
as is usual, two rotary controls for separate temperature
control on the driver and front passenger
sides.
The temperature can be displayed in degrees
Celsius or degrees Fahrenheit via the integrated
display.
Triple-zone deluxe automatic air conditioning plus
provides further convenience functions:
Indirect ventilation Rear ventilation
Separate air distribution driver and front passenger
side Air quality sensor
Air humidity sensor Third climate zone for the rear passengers

I think the first system is a standard AC system, meaning on or off, and you turn the button to red for hotter, and to blue for colder. The Plus system allows it t oregulate specific temperature settings, which it maintains throughout the cabin ( you set 23 degrees centigrade and it maintains it, despite sulight) - also allows climate control in the back.

The standard is basic AC, like in any cheap car, the second is climate ( temperature) control.

Hi All

I know this is a very old thread but I need to ask a question. Saw my friend on the weekend who has an S-Line 2011 A5. But his has only the standard air conditioning system and no humidity sensor (or auto lights / wipers).

I though all S-Lines has 3-zone climate control am I wrong?

In 2011 6-cylinder cars had the 3-zone climate control as standard, it was optional on the 4-cylinder cars. The single-zone version is also climate controlled.
