Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

With our recommended 40 TFSI engine fitted, the Audi A5 Coupé is priced roughly on a par with an equivalent BMW 4 Series, while a like-for-like Mercedes C-Class Coupé will cost you a little more. Unsurprisingly, the A5 commands a small premium over an equivalent A4 saloon, but the difference isn't huge.

For those looking to run an A5 as a company car, CO2 emissions will be just as important. There's relatively good news on that front: the most efficient diesel (the 35 TDI in entry-level Sport trim) pumps out as little as 125g/km. However, the 40 TFSI petrol engine is slightly cheaper and not that much less efficient, so that will still be a better choice for many company car drivers.

Overview

Choose carefully and you'll be getting a comfortable and quiet coupe with a very classy interior. True, the A5 could be a little more exciting to drive, but it's still an incredibly rounded car – especially if you opt for the 40 TFSI petrol in entry-level Sport trim.

  • Plush interior
  • Strong and smooth engines
  • Practical by coupe standards
  • Steering could be more feelsome
  • You’ll want to add a few options
  • Very expensive Vorsprung trim
