For The Audi A5 is classy, solidly built and desirable. Its performance is strong, whichever engine you choose, and standard equipment is generous.
Against Even by coupe standards, rear leg- and headroom are tight. It’s not as good to drive as a BMW 3 Series, and the pedals are heavily offset.

Coupes don’t come much classier than the Audi A5. It’s just a pity it’s not better to drive.

There’s no such thing as a bad Audi A5 Coupe, but our favourite is the 2.0 TDI. In everyday driving it’s plenty quick enough, yet it still averages over 60mpg.
Whichever engine you go for, the dealer should be willing to offer a discount. Savings of over £1000 aren’t out of the question. Resale values are strong, too, so expect to get back as much as half of the original price in three years’ time.
The queue of willing buyers will be bigger if you choose wisely from the options’ list. Leather upholstery is standard on SE models and above, but cruise control and satellite-navigation are desirable extras.
