It’s best to think of the Audi A5 Coupé 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 was our 2016 Car of the Year, although the A5 does cost you more to buy – style doesn't often come cheap, after all.
Coupés aren't just about looks, though; they also need to be good to own and to drive. On that front, we think the A5 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 is the A5 a better all-rounder? The next few pages will tell you, and we'll also outline which trim levels and engines make the most sense.
