The A5 Sportback blends coupé-like styling with decent practicality. If you want something that's efficient to run, comfortable and refined, with a beautifully executed interior, it's one of the best coupés for the cash. It also handles well, but if you prefer thrilling and playful rear-wheel-drive dynamics, we'd opt for the excellent BMW 4 Series instead.

S line adds more aggressive looks, 19in alloy wheels, Matrix LED headlights, privacy glass, part-leather and suede seats, and stiffer, lowered suspension.

The 201bhp 40 TDI quattro manages even easier B-road overtakes than the 35 TDI, hitting 0-62mph in just 7.0sec but, when you drive it carefully, averages almost 55mpg. It's also quiet and comes with four-wheel drive as standard.
