Audi A5

Born of the popular A4, Audi's A5 takes the same platform and offers it in a svelte, attractive two-door body style.

Recently relaunched locally to critical acclaim, some of the first generation car’s charms – including affordable V8s and manual gearboxes – may have disappeared, but the A5 is regarded as one of the best looking cars ever to come out of the Ingolstadt stable.

The second-generation car starts with the A5 Sportback 1.8 TFSI S Line Plus that is priced at $68,900, coming with a 1.8-litre and front-wheel drive, while the A5 2.0 TFSI QUATTRO S TRONIC SPRT tops out at $95,000, coming with a turbocharged V6 and all-wheel drive.

Audi A5 Cabriolet 2017 review

Audi's biggest, boldest convertible, the A5, will make up just 10 per cent of that badge's total sales, but the Germans don't do anything by halves, and they've thrown everything at the new Cabriolet.Read more

Audi A5 Sportback TFSI Quattro 2017 Review

Audi's A5 Sportback is a partner-in-crime of the A5 two-door coupe. It's basically a stretched hatch in five-door drag.Read more

Audi A5 Sportback 2017 review

Audi's original A5 Sportback was one of the most successful, if not the most successful, four-door coupe designs made by anybody. Sleek, low and perfectly proportioned.Read more
