Audi A5 Coupe - Practicality & boot space

Form may take precedence over function on the Audi A5, but it’s not completely impractical

Practicality & boot space Rating

3.5 out of 5

Understandably, the A5 Coupe does make some practicality sacrifices in the name of a rakish, sporty appearance – very few two-door cars are as easy to live with as saloon or five-door hatchback models. However, if you accept that the rear seats are best reserved for occasional use, you’ll find the A5 very easy to live with day-to-day, with a decent sized boot adding to its broad appeal as a luxurious car for weekend trips away.

Audi A5 interior space & storage

While few owners will have any trouble accessing the front of the A5, getting into the back seats can be a bit of a struggle due to that swoopy roof. But once in, you’ll find enough room for a couple of average-sized adults, although anyone over about six feet tall may well find their head brushing the roof sometimes. It’ll prove quite cramped on long journeys.

Boot capacity

The A5’s boot is a bit smaller than the A4 saloon but the 450 litres on offer is by no means stingy compared to the A5’s swoopy rivals. It’s about the same size as the BMW 4 Series Coupe and at least 70 litres more than the Mercedes C-Class Coupe offers. It’s also nigh-on 90 litres more than you’ll find in the Lexus RC Coupe.
