Used Audi A5 For Sale
The Audi A5 is a premium coupé that offers impressive levels of refinement and a stunning interior design.
If you're looking for a sleek motorway cruiser with a quality finish throughout, then the A5 should be right up your street. Despite being a coupé, the A5 is reasonably practical; it has a big boot and a decent amount of space in the back, plus there's a 5-door version available.
There are a number of reasons an Audi A5 makes a good used car purchase, which include:
- Excellent refinement
- Elegant appearance
- Surprisingly big boot
- Potent range of engines
- Quality interior design
Engines and Driving Experience
The A5 has never been about maximum driving thrills, but is geared towards comfort and refinement instead. If you want something sharper, then you should check out the BMW 4 Series. Models fitted with the brand's Quattro all-wheel drive system benefit from excellent traction in tricky conditions.
- 35 TFSI: 2.0-litre producing 148bhp (0 to 62mph in 8.9 seconds and up to 45.6mpg)
- 40 TFSI: 2.0-litre producing 201bhp (0 to 62mph in 7.1 seconds and up to 45.6mpg)
- 45 TFSI: 2.0-litre producing 262bhp (0 to 62mph in 5.5 seconds and up to 37.7mpg)
- 35 TDI: 2.0-litre producing 160bhp (0 to 62mph in 8.2 seconds and up to 58.9mpg)
- 40 TDI: 2.0-litre producing 201bhp (0 to 62mph in 6.9 seconds and up to 54.3mpg)
It's worth noting that all cars come with a slick automatic gearbox as standard, which makes for an efficient and smooth driving experience.
Practicality and Running Costs
The Audi A5 is available in two bodystyles: a traditional 2-door Coupé and something the brand calls a Fastback. Put simply, the Fastback is a longer version of the Coupé, and it comes with five doors for added practicality.
Speaking of practicality, it's reasonable to say the A5 isn't going to be as spacious as the A4 or A6, but this is a small price to pay for a sleek appearance. However, there's still a respectable amount of room in the back for average-sized adults, and fitting a child's seat is a doddle in the Fastback models.
Boot space is very good for this class of car, with 450 litres on offer. In fact, that's a good 50 litres bigger than what you'll find in a Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupé.
Annual premiums should be reasonable on the lower-spec models, because they hover around insurance group 25 (out of 50). Some of the higher-spec cars sit in group 35 and above. Routine servicing and maintenance can be completed through your nearest Evans Halshaw retailer, with tailored service plans readily available.
Interior, Technology and Safety
Audi evidently put a lot of time into designing their interiors, and the A5 is no exception. Quality materials feature throughout, while the general layout and ergonomics are among the best in this class.
While the central infotainment touchscreen offers a stunning display alongside menus that are simple to navigate, it's the brand's Virtual Cockpit that impresses the most. Taking place of the traditional instrument cluster, you can set the screen to display any information you want, including a large satellite navigation view.
Keyless start, automatic lights, multi-zone climate control and DAB radio feature as standard on entry-level Sport models. Cars with the S line specification are worth seeking out if you'd like something sportier, because they get front sports seats, larger wheels, stiffened suspension and Matrix LED headlights.
The top-spec Vorsprung is immensely well-equipped, and benefits from a panoramic sunroof, parking assistance, a Bang & Olufsen sound system and adaptive suspension.
Safety features and driver aids included on the A5 as standard include:
- Cruise control with speed limiter
- Hill Hold Assist
- Rear-view camera
- Camera and/or distance sensor (driver assistance system)
- Audi Drive Select
Is the Audi A5 right for me?
The Audi A5 is a great choice of vehicle if you want an elegant cruiser that is loaded with great technology and has an efficient array of engines. It may not be the most practical car in the world, but opt for a Fastback and there's enough room for the children and your weekly shopping (plus a little more).
Being a premium medium-sized coupé, the A5 faces strong competition from rivals. The BMW 4 Series is the best choice if you value driving engagement, and like your cars to look a bit more visually aggressive. Elsewhere, there's the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupé, which has style and elegance in abundance.
