What Car? says...
It’s best to think of the Audi A5 as a sleeker-looking but less practical version of the popular A4 saloon – and that isn't meant to sound dismissive. The A4 was a fantastic starting point for Audi to choose, being a former What Car? Car of the Year.
Here we're focussing on the two-door, four-seat Coupé version of the Audi A5. There's also a wind-in-your hair Cabriolet or, if you need rear doors, a more practical Sportback version. Alternatively, if it's outrageous performance you're looking for, check out our review of the Audi RS5. Just click the links to shortcut straight to those reviews.
But back to the regular Audi A5 Coupé, which is a rival to the BMW 4 Series and Mercedes C Class Coupé. How does it stack up against those equally swoopy looking alternatives? And which of the A5's range of petrol and diesel engines should you choose? Over the next few pages, we'll tell you everything you need to know.
