We doubt many folk will struggle for space in the front seats of the A5 Sportback, but that sleeker roofline sacrifices practicality compared with the A4 saloon in the rear. Head room is tighter – but still tolerable – and there’s more rear leg room than in a Kia Stinger.
The boot is great size, with enough room to fit seven carry-on suitcases, and the hatchback opening means loading larger items is a breeze. Should you need more room, the 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats drop to reveal a flat load bay. However, if coupé looks with serious passenger and boot space is a must, nothing beats the Volkswagen Arteon.
