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 40 TFSI S TRONIC SPORT that is priced at $70,100, coming with a 1.8-litre and front-wheel drive, while the A5 45 TFSI QUATTRO S TRONIC SPORT tops out at $92,400, coming with a turbocharged V6 and all-wheel drive.

Audi A5 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Audi A5 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Audi A5 2016: Petrol or diesel?

    Both the petrol and diesel versions of Audi’s V6 are high-performance units that will provide all the performance you’ll ever need. But for most people buying an A5, there’s really only one that’s the right engine for them and it has nothing to do with reliability.

    The turbo-diesel V6 is only really happy if you’re regularly using it for longer journeys where the engine gets hot enough to regenerate its soot-filter. This isn’t an Audi-specific thing; it applies across the board to all modern, common-rail diesel engines with soot-filters. For most urban-dwelling Australians, the pattern of vehicle usage doesn’t include those critical long journeys at freeway speeds, and driving around the suburbs for 12 months without a regular gallop on the open road will almost guarantee problems with the diesel’s emissions control systems (including the soot-filter).

    Which means that for the vast majority of A5 buyers, the petrol V6 is the only way to go. While you will be losing a little fuel economy over the diesel, the petrol V6 is actually a nicer engine to use and live with. It’s faster, smoother and definitely more refined. And you won’t smell like a semi-trailer every time you fill up.

  • Is it costly servicing an Audi in Australia?

    Servicing a European car like the Audi generally costs more than one from Asia, for instance, but you shouldn’t have anything to worry about providing you service it as per Audi’s recommendation. To save a little on the cost of service, and often also on parts, you could have it serviced by a specialist Audi mechanic.

  • A5 slow to accelerate

    From your description I would agree with you that it doesn't appear normal, although road testers talk of mild turbo-lag at takeoff. Mild turbo lag doesn't seem to equate to extremely sluggish, but it would be worth your while to drive other similar A5s to get a feel for them as well. Perhaps your dealer might be able to arrange for you to drive a demonstrator.

  • Suitability of an A5 Sportback as a used buy?

    In my view buying a used European car is risky, they're expensive to service and repair, and more things tend to go wrong with them as the kilometres climb. 

    You're more likely to hit snags with them than you are with less exotic cars from other parts of the world. With Audis you should try to ascertain if they are using oil, and you should thoroughly check the operation of the automatic transmission. 

    Once you have chosen a car I would urge you to have it checked by a mechanic experienced in Audis or VWs.
