The Audi A5 Coupe is a stylish and desirable premium coupe. It's based on the Audi A4 saloon, but the A5 is sportier. It sits lower to the ground and it's wider, too, giving it a more aggressive look. It's a rival to the BMW 4 Series (which is a coupe version of the 3 Series) and the Mercedes C-Class Coupe. As with any Audi, build quality is superb, the interior is stylish, luxurious and packed with technology, and the engines are all smooth, powerful and efficient. Star of the range is a 3.0-litre TDI diesel engine, which will take the A5 from 0-60mph in under six seconds while still returning almost 50mpg. The A5 is also available as the more practical four-door A5 Sportback and as a convertible. There are also sportier S5 and RS5 versions available.
