Audi is renowned for its classy, minimalist interiors that are both exquisitely finished and super-intuitive. The A5 doesn’t disappoint, bettering its rivals from BMW and Mercedes-Benz with upmarket materials everywhere you look and a simple, user-friendly dashboard layout.
Audi’s MMI infotainment system comes as standard and features a clear 7.0in display mounted centrally on the dashboard that’s controlled using a rotary dial positioned between the front seats. You twist the dial to scroll through the on-screen menus and press it down to make a selection, and there are some handy shortcut keys to take you straight to specific functions.
Sat-nav comes as standard on all trims, although the digital Virtual Cockpit – a 12.3in screen that takes the place of standard analogue instrument dials – costs extra.
The driving position is tough to fault, with plenty of seat and steering wheel adjustment and a comfortable sports seat that provides plenty of upper-back support, as well as four-way electric lumbar adjustment.
