Why Lease An Audi A5?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
The Audi A5’s practicality levels are largely dictated by the body style you pick. The A5 Coupe may have a slightly compromised 2nd row compared to the A4 Saloon, but it offers 450 litres of boot space, which is just 15 litres less.
The Sportback also has a sloping rear roofline which impinges on rear headroom, but the additional set of doors make access far easier, while it actually has a 60mm-longer wheelbase (and body, as a result) than the other A5s. This means there’s more rear legroom on offer. Not only that, but the Sportback’s large rear hatch opens to reveal 480 litres of boot space. Fold the rear seats and you have a stylish carry-all that offers 1280 litres of loading space. These figures are similar to those of the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe.
The Cabriolet is by default the least practical of the 3, but with seating for 4 and a very usable 380 litres of boot space (320 with the roof down), those are better than both the BMW 4 Series Convertible and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Convertible. All A5s come with a set of cupholders in the centre console, while the door pockets can hold smaller items. Rear-seat passengers are less well catered for, but they still get a foldable centre armrest and small door pockets.
The standard Audi A5 variants can be equipped with a selection of efficient petrol and diesel engines, with power outputs ranging from 150- to 265hp. The most economical is the 163hp 2.0-litre diesel, which offers a claimed 58.9mpg, while the 265hp 2.0-litre petrol does 35.8mpg.
If performance and frugality are on your shopping list then the S5 with its 341hp 3.0-litre diesel engine is worth a look. It offers a combined 40.4mpg and a 0-62mph time of just 4.6 seconds. The range-topping 450hp RS5 is rated at 29.7mpg, although you will have to avoid using its prodigious performance capabilities to get anywhere near that figure in regular driving duties.
A5 CoupeThe A5 Coupe has 2 doors, 4 seats and enough luggage space for a weekend away and then some.
A5 SportbackThe Sportback features 2 additional doors, a larger boot (480 litres compared to the Coupe’s 450) and yet has the same coupe-like profile. The ideal A5 for a family of 4.
A5 CabrioletThe A5 Cabriolet offers a folding fabric roof while still retaining 2 rear seats. Boot space is 380 litres with the roof up, which is still the best compared to its drop-top rivals.
High Performance ModelsThe diesel-powered 341hp Audi S5 will appeal to those looking for serious straight-line pace allied with impressive fuel economy, while the 450hp 2.9-litre petrol-powered RS5 is the uncompromising range-topper. It is worth noting that neither can be had in the Cabriolet body style, though.
