What Car? says...

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 will inevitably cost you more to buy – that's the price of style, after all.

Coupés aren't just about looks, though; they've also got 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-Benz 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? Read on over the next few pages to find out, plus we'll tell you everything you need to know before buying, including which trim levels and engines make the most sense.
