2015 5-Year Cost to Own Awards: Best Luxury Car

2015 Audi A5

Best Luxury Car:
2015 Audi A5

Among luxury cars, the Audi A5 stands out not only for its low 5-Year Cost-to-Own figure, but also for its design, driving dynamics and efficiency. This handsome coupe is neatly tailored, has spot-on steering and handling that quickens the pulse along with a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that delivers as much as 32 mpg on the highway with the 6-speed manual.

Among the standard features on the Audi A5 are quattro AWD, 3-zone automatic climate control, tilt/telescope steering wheel, a panoramic sunroof, and 10-way adjustable power leather seats. The 10-speaker audio system includes Bluetooth and iPod integration, and the standard A5 even comes with automatic headlights and windshield wipers.

The A5's interior reinforces the impression that you are driving a luxury car of the first order thanks to its striking design, high-quality materials and easy day-to-day usability. The 2015 Audi A5's leather seats offer excellent support without sacrificing accessibility, while the driver-oriented gauge cluster and center stack lend a sporty feel. While Audi's MMI system works well, and the other controls are easy to use, what sets this interior apart is the exquisite attention to detail.

As our expert review puts it, "If you think your car should reflect your life, and you live a particularly beautiful life, then the 2015 Audi A5 Coupe is your mirror. The fact that it's a terrific all-around driving experience conducted in sumptuous luxury is practically a bonus."
