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 261bhp 45 TFSI quattro is decidedly brisk (0-62mph takes 5.6sec) but with four-wheel drive and the extra power, the official economy takes a sizeable hit over the lower-power petrols (around 37mpg).
