Ownership cost

What used Audi A5 sports will I get for my budget?

A high-mileage, early A5 Cabriolet can be found for as little as £4500, but we’d suggest you spend £6500 for something with fewer miles on it. 

A facelifted example from 2012 onwards will cost you around £11,000, while a late model from an Audi franchised dealer should be around £20,000.

The turbocharged 3.0-litre petrol in the S5 isn’t too bad for a performance car, with an economy figure of 33.2mpg and 199g/km, but the 4.2-litre V8 in the RS5 will hurt your bank balance; it returns just 26.4mpg and emits 249g/km.

All versions of this generation of A5 should have been registered before the revisions in the tax systems that occurred on 1 April, 2017. This means that the amount you’ll be charged will be based on the CO2 output of the car, and you can read about the different pricing structures by following this link here

Audi servicing is much more reasonable than most other premium rivals, whether you decide to pay for it upfront under a fixed price scheme, or set up a monthly plan to pay for two services over the course of 18 months. For A5s with engines that are 2.0-litres or under, it’ll cost £26.67 per month or £180 for a minor and £345 for a major. Larger engines cost £30 a month or £210 and £399, respectively. High-performance models will cost more, however. An S5 will set you back £220 for a minor service, or £485 for a major one. RS5 models presently cost £350 for the smaller minor check-up, or £675 for a more intensive major one.
