Which used Audi A5 hatchback should I buy?

The entry-level model is a four-cylinder petrol 1.8 TFSI with 168bhp. Other petrol motors include a 211bhp 2.0 TFSI and a 268bhp supercharged 3.0 TFSI V6. S5 models get a 328bhp supercharged 3.0-litre V6. The 2.0 TDI 143 is the entry-level diesel. There's also a 175bhp 2.0 TDI unit that offers an excellent blend of performance and economy, which is our favourite. Two 3.0-litre V6 engines complete the diesel line-up with either 201bhp or 242bhp.

You have predominantly three trims to choose from: S line, Black Edition and the mega-sporting S5. S line is hardly an entry-level model, so expect a host of equipment such as 18in alloy wheels, a 6.5in MMI infotainment system with sat-nav, DAB and Bluetooth, front and rear parking sensors, xenon headlights, auto lights and wipers, nappa leather seats, heated front seats and an aggressive S line bodykit.

Black Edition models get a black styling kit and Audi's music interface, along with 19in alloys and a Bang & Olufsen sound system.

Our favourite Audi A5 Sportback 2.0 TDI 177 S line
