Audi A5 2017

The 2017 Audi A5 range of configurations is currently priced from $39,990. Our most recent review of the 2017 Audi A5 resulted in a score of 7.1 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Contributing journalist Peter Anderson had this to say at the time: The A5 Cabriolet is quite the boulevardier. It's been quite a while since I've driven such a calm car and its effect on me - apart from the sunburn - was marked. It's not a car you feel the need to rush in, and with the top down on a nice drive it's almost unbeatable, partly because you can take tolerant people with you.

This is what Peter Anderson liked most about this particular version of the Audi A5: Super-quiet and refined, Excellent top-down cabin ambience, Smooth, powerful engine

The 2017 Audi A5 carries a braked towing capacity of up to 1800 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

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.
