All-new for 2018, the A5 Coupe and Cabriolet are the sportier, free-spirited siblings of the A4. Though based on that compact-luxury sedan, these models emphasize design and driver enjoyment, traits made evident by the snug rear seats, similar to its German rivals the Mercedes-Benz C-Class coupe and BMW 4 Series. The 5-door A5 Sportback packs style and versatility.
New Features and Revisions
The A5 is all-new for 2018. Like the revamped A4 that came before it, the new A5 is loaded with slick technology like Audi's Virtual Cockpit digital dash and active safety features. The A5 debuts concurrently with the latest S5 high-performance model (reviewed separately), while the track-ready, 444-horsepower RS 5 (also reviewed separately) has now arrived at last.
