The Audi A5 (internally designated Typ 8T) is a grand tourer (Coupe and Convertible) and a compact executive car (Sportback) produced by the German automobile manufacturer Audi since 2007. The A5 range comprises thecoupe, convertible, and "Sportback" (a 5-door liftback featuring a roof line with a steeply raked rear window with integrated trunk lid) versions of the fourth generation (B8) Audi A4 saloon and estate models.
If looks alone could determine a car's appeal, the 2014 Audi A5 would be the only luxury coupe or convertible that mattered. Although the A5 is essentially just a 2-door version of the A4 sedan, its sophisticated styling suggests far greater exclusivity. Avoid this Audi if you don't want valets to display your wheels out front.
You also may want to avoid the A5 if you expect serious speed in your luxury ride. Don't get us wrong, the mandatory 2.0T turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine is a fine piece of engineering, but 220 horsepower isn't even that much for a family sedan these days. In the rarefied realm of luxury 2-doors, most motors offer considerably more muscle. Of course, Audi also sells the performance-oriented S5 (reviewed separately) with its stout supercharged V6. But bring money, because the S5 doesn't come cheap.
So it's clear that the A5 isn't going to win many stoplight races. But we also know that plenty of shoppers in this segment care more about style and luxury than all-out performance -- and if that sounds like you, there's a pretty good chance you'll fall in love with Audi's 2-door stunner.
The A5 gets a slight bump up to 220 hp, and the Drive Select system is now part of the Sport package. Also, Bluetooth and iPod connectivity is newly standard on all A5s.
