The Audi A5 Coupe is a sporty two-door coupe which epitomises class. It offers a relaxing drive, a top-notch interior, and the latest technology. If you want an adaptable, slick, and stylish car, the A5 Coupe is the car for you.
The Audi A5 Coupe has a stylish and sporty exterior and wouldn't look out of place cruising around the south of France. It has a large front grille, sporty creases in the bonnet, and a slick roof. For those who like driving at night, LED lights come as standard.
Although the A5 Coupe is a two-door coupe, there's plenty of space for those in the front regardless of height, with leg and headroom being generous. You'll also be pleasantly surprised about how much space is in the back; however, if you cover a lot of miles with the family, it may be worth going for the larger A5 Sportback.
Boot space comes in at 450 litres which is generous considering it's a two-door car. The rear seats also split and fold 40/20/40, extending the boot to accommodate those bulkier items.
The interior is one of the standout qualities of the A5 Coupe, featuring premium materials throughout the cabin. You'll find comfortable leather seats, good quality wooden panels, and soft-touch buttons to help you drive in style.
In terms of technology, you'll find a reactive 10.1-inch touchscreen with sat-nav, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and wireless phone charging as standard. This is accompanied by Audi's 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit, which displays all the required information to the driver.
The Audi A5 Coupe comes in four trims: Sport, Black Edition, S Line, and the top-of-the-range Vorsprung.
The entry-level Sport has 18-inch alloy wheels, LED head and rear lights, deluxe 3-zone electronic climate control, voice control, and cruise control.
The Black Edition features 20-inch black alloy wheels, a black styling pack, Audi Beam (used LEDs to project the logo onto the ground as you exit the car), and a flat-bottomed 3-spoke high-functioning leather Sport steering wheel.
The S Line adds to this with 19-inch five-spoke alloy wheels, lowered sport suspension, a radiator grille in matt black, privacy glass, and contrast stitching on the seats.
The range-topping Vorsprung has 20-inch star-design alloy wheels in matt titanium and comes with the Comfort & Sound Pack as standard, which gives you a superb Bang & Olufsen sound system.
A range of petrol and diesel engines are available for the Audi A5 Coupe. Three 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engines are available, ascending from 35, 40, and 45 TFSI with 150, 204, and 245hp.
If you want performance matched with affordable running costs, the pick of the bunch is the 45 TFSI. It achieves 0-62mph in 7.1 seconds and has a combined fuel consumption of 40.9-42.2mpg.
You might be swayed towards the 35 or 40 TDI diesel engines if you're doing more miles. Both give a similar performance to the first two petrol units but have a much better economy, with the 35 TDI returning between 57.5-58.9mpg.
All engines are only available with the seven-speed automatic gearbox. This may disappoint some people, but it does hold its own; it shifts calmly and behaves just how you'd want. You also have a choice between front and all-wheel drive, with the 'Quattro' units providing the latter.
On the road, the A5 Coupe is suited to cruising more than anything else. The steering is more inconsistent than the BMW 4 Series, so rounding corners at speed may prove challenging. The best course of action would be to let the A5 Coupe stay in its comfort zone as a relaxing cruiser.
Prices for the new Audi A5 Coupe start from £39,600.00 OTR* or to lease from £399.61 per month.
