What alternatives should I consider to a used Audi A5 hatchback?

The BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé is good to drive, with the usual range of strong engines, although diesel models can be a little noisy. It’s not quite as dynamic as some other BMW models and it’s not as roomy, but it’s a classy car that’ll appeal to those after a sporty but practical car.

The Kia Stinger is long, low and sporting, and deeply out of character for the Korean firm. It’s good to drive, though, with fantastic performance available in the GT S version. It’s still quite new, so there won’t be many used ones out there.

Or try the larger Mercedes-Benz CLS, the car that started the craze for four-door coupés. It’s great to look at and to drive, and it's comfortable too. It’ll cost more like for like than the A5 Sportback, though, since it’s more of a rival for the larger A7 Sportback.
