KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors - Updated Date: 7/7/2013


In the great tradition of high-performance luxury coupes, Audi builds one for the coffee-table art-appreciation books. Open a door and you'll find the same level of artistic expression stretching across a beautiful interior. With all that, the 2014 Audi A5 is a wonder to drive. Engines range from the surprisingly strong turbocharged 4-cylinder, increased to 220 horsepower, to the 3.0-liter supercharged V6 of the S5 with 333 horsepower, to the 4.2-liter V8 of the RS 5 with 450 horsepower. Ride, handling, braking, steering and over-the-road manners are everything you might expect. The detail finish is flawless. Open-air enthusiasts can choose the Cabriolet, available in all three power levels. Live where the weather gets bad? Audi's quattro all-wheel drive (AWD) will deal with it. All this and more is why we named the Audi A5 one of the 10 Best Luxury Cars Under $40,000 for 2014.

You'll Like This Car If...

The A5 Coupe and Cabriolet are Audi's contributions to the nation's Highway Beautification Program. If that appeals to you, and in the bargain you get a terrific all-around driving experience conducted in sumptuous luxury, then this is your ride.

You May Not Like This Car If...

The 2014 Audi A5 competes against entrants from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Infiniti and others, so you're not without choices. The back seat, even for a coupe, is snug. And, especially in the higher-trim versions, the A5 might test the edges of your budget.

What's New for 2014

The biggest change for the 2014 A5 is an upgrade in the output of the turbocharged 4-cylinder engine to 220 horsepower. Other changes are in the areas of enhancements to packages and standard-equipment lists and the inclusions of some items that were previously optional being made standard.

Driving It Driving Impressions

Audi has led luxury automakers in the utilization of weight-saving aluminum chassis structures, and that pays huge dividends in how the 2013 A5 performs on the road. The A5 Coupe offers terrific balance above all else, with excellent poise and a comfortable ride in just about any reasonable situation. The S5 Coupe, meanwhile, delivers blistering speed and over-the-road competence, courtesy of its supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine and the quattro all-wheel-drive system. Even with its remarkable power, the S5 Coupe can easily and precisely be manipulated through your favorite corners, and you don't have to be an expert driver with a racing background to appreciate its handling prowess and refinement. Want still more? The RS 5, with 450 horsepower, will get and hold your attention.

Favorite Features

3.0-LITER SUPERCHARGED V6
All the engines in the A5 lineup are terrific, but we really like the supercharged 3.0-liter V6 in the S5, with 333 horsepower, 325 lb-ft of torque, snappy response, silky smoothness and commendable fuel economy. Matched with either the 6-speed manual transmission or 8-speed Tiptronic automatic, it suits the S5 perfectly.

SUPERMODEL EXTERIOR
We don't mind saying it: We think the A5 is drop-dead gorgeous, and its stunning good looks have to be one of the major reasons for considering the purchase.
