Which used Audi A5 sports should I buy?

Standard SE spec is probably the best way to go because you get all the luxuries you’ll need without having to resort to the rock-hard ride of S Line cars.

We also prefer the automatic S tronic gearbox over the manual; the offset driving position mentioned earlier makes the latter's clutch pedal awkward to use.  The S tronic gearbox is also far nicer than the Multitronic CVT that's teamed exclusively with the 2.7 TDI.

Regarding engines, because of the oil consumption issues of 2.0-litre TFSI engines and the thirst of some of the larger petrols, we’d suggest you go for one diesels instead. The 2.0-litre is the most popular and economical, while the 3.0-litre is a worthwhile upgrade, so long as you can afford the higher running costs.  

Our favourite Audi A5 Cabriolet: 2.0 TDI SE S tronic
