Review

The Audi A5 Cabriolet is one of the quietest and classiest four-seater drop-tops in its price range, with certainly the finest finished interior. That interior isn’t as user-friendly as the BMW 4 Series Convertible's, though, plus the 4 Series is similarly comfortable and more enjoyable to drive.

Bigger, 19in alloy wheels, sport suspension, more aggressive styling, matrix LED headlights and a sports steering wheel are among the additions when paying extra for S line trim. Unless you love the look, though, we wouldn’t bother, because it pushes up the price considerably.

This engine offers similar real-world performance to the more potent 45 TFSI petrol, but not enough of an improvement in fuel economy to justify its expense over a 40 TFSI. Its emissions aren’t that great for company car drivers, either.
