Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8
"This is my 4th Audi - my first A5.
It's been very reliable and has very sexy coupe looks. It's Turbo charged 2.0l 4 cyl has adequate power for most cases, there is a bit of lag on initial acceleration, but once the Turbo gets going around 3K RPM it's got more than enough power. The sounds are typical 4 cyl so don't expect American V8 baritones emanating from the exhaust. It handles excellent - typical German dynamics.
The back seats are OK for young kids but it's very tight for adults so if you have older kids stick with the 4 door A4 else you will here mucho whining. The trunk is nice size for a coupe (the convertible version though not so much since the top uses much of the trunk space). The interior quality and feel is fantastic.
If you want low end torque and violent acceleration off the line and don't mind lower gas mileage and significantly higher cost then go with the S5, but to me the A5 fits the bill since I don't need drag racer acceleration and want decent gas mileage and comfort.
SO, IF you want adequate acceleration, excellent handling, fantastic sexy looks, don't need a comfortable back seat for adults, want high quality and reliability and Audi panache, then I highly recommend the A5."
"My 5th Audi but 1st a5 coupe. The AWD is awesome! Fantastic handling.
Bang & O rocks. Sport Pkg handling & seats so enjoyable. Timeless design. This one just might be a keeper. Posted 9/10 as it's a little more difficult than the 4 door to put down the back seats reaching into the back. So glad I finally got my coupe!"
