It’s best to think of the Audi A5 Coupe as a sleeker-looking but less practical version of the popular A4 saloon.
The A4 is a pretty good starting point for Audi to choose, given that it's our 2016 Car of the Year, although the A5 will inevitably cost you more to buy – that's the price of style, after all.
Coupes aren't just about looks, though; they've also got to be good to own and to drive, and on that front we think this car is a genuine alternative to its key rivals, the BMW 4 Series and Mercedes C-Class Coupé. The A5 is plusher inside and marginally more practical than both of those cars, plus it's available with some absolutely fantastic engines.
True, if you pick the right 4 Series you’ll enjoy more rewarding handling on a winding country road, but the A5 is the better all-rounder. In the right spec, it could also potentially top the similarly impressive all-round talents of the C-Class Coupé, too.
Read on over the next few pages for everything you need to know before buying an Audi A5, including which trim levels and engines to choose.
