Review

The Audi A5 Cabriolet is refined, comfortable and has tidy, if not thrilling, handling. It’s one of the classiest drop-tops in this price range, with certainly the finest finished interior. That interior isn’t as spacious as a BMW 4 Series, though, nor is the A5 Cabriolet’s latest infotainment system as easy to use. But, the Audi is a better drive than an equivalent Mercedes C-Class Cabriolet, plus it has a great range of refined engines that are more than a match for the competition.

get the best price

Plump for Edition 1 to get 20in alloys, fine grain nappa leather and electric adjustments for the front seats.

The 201bhp 40 TFSI is the Goldilocks version (not too hot, not too cold). It has enough power to best a similarly priced 420i BMW 4 Series, plus it costs considerably less than the equivalently specced diesel and 45 TFSI petrol.
