2017 Audi A5 Coupe Review

Introduction

The suave Audi A5 Coupe is, in the very best sense, an archetypal Audi. Sleek, understated, perfectly-formed and clinically able, it has sophistication by the bucketload within an elegant body. This second-generation model was new for 2016 and, at first glance, seems little different to the pretty original. It has evolved, though, and is more desirable than ever even if it ultimately lacks that final slice of passion.

Body Style: Coupe               Seats: 4          MRP from £30,700 - £47,000 

 

Did you know? Think the A5 Coupe looks sleek? You’d be right: with an aerodynamic drag factor (Cd) of just 0.25, it’s the slipperiest shape in its class.

Verdict: ★★★★★★★★☆☆ (8.5/10)

The good-looking Audi A5 Coupe is a very sophisticated and well-developed machine indeed. Its styling is an evolution of the original, with delicate surfacing and detailing that will grow on you with time. The interior is a treat and it has some impressive onboard tech. The drive is similarly sophisticated, which may frustrate some, who would prefer a bit more excitement and coupe-like driver thrills, but that’s not Audi’s way. Cool-headed civility is its preference, and this is a style the A5 Coupe carries off to clean-cut perfection.
