What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For Stylish, a desirable image, big boot and efficient engines

Against Dull steering; limited rear passenger and luggage space

Verdict A big, classy coupe, that's more cruiser than sports car

Go for… 2.0TDI 2dr

Avoid… 4.2V8 S Line 2dr

Audi A5 Coupe
  • 1. The A5 Coupe feels a little ponderous through bends and has dull steering – although it remains composed at all times. The ride is firm, especially with the optional sports suspension, and the car.
  • 2. Even the entry-level model comes well equipped, with 17-inch alloys, climate control, automatic wipers, leather upholstery and a decent stereo system
  • 3. Insurance premiums are high, with the range starting at group 28 rising group 38.
  • 4. There are also isolated reports of engine warning lights staying on and clutch failures. Some owners have also complained about rattles and squeaks within the cabin.
  • 5. Before you buy a Sport or S Line model make sure you take a test drive, and can live with the firm suspension.
