Audi A5 Review

The Audi A5 was introduced in 2007 as a four-seat, three-door vehicle. Thanks to its established success as a coupe, the A5 name was used again for Cabriolet and is also the name bearer for the open-top version of the coupe. There’s also the Audi A5 Sportback that the company describes as a combination of coupe style with saloon practicality, and will be the last model of the A5 range.

Pros

In terms of design, the Audi A5 is an effective combination of concave surfaces, straight lines, and swathing curves. The S-line versions of the A5 include a discreet bodykit with the Audi’s ultra-bright LED running lights positioned below the xenon headlamps. As for the cabriolet, muscular contours are retained from the coupe model’s rear flanks.  

The Audi A5 has an overall architecture familiar to Volkswagen loyalists. Its steel unibody encases petrol and diesel engines that are directed from a quattro or front all-wheel drive. The longer wheelbase improves the vehicle’s ride quality. There’s also a platform located appropriately far forward from the axle line, distributing the vehicle’s mass more evenly across these axles.
Other features that improve the ride and drive experience is the five-link suspension, which provides better control, and the electromechanical steering for better response. The links are made from aluminum and are placed on the sub frame. Fuel economy is another great improvement in the Audi A5.

If you want to enjoy the breeze or the sun, the roof can easily be collapsed after waiting for 15 seconds. Raising is just a mere 17-seconds wait. The S5 and S-line A5 convertibles are a good choice for anyone that wants the noise levels reduced in the cabin. With the Sportback, you can expect about the same space in the A4 four-door’s flat-sided boot space. You’ll want the Sportback if you’re after a longer load bay of a flat orientation.Comfort and luxury are the first words that come to mind when seeing the A5’s interior. The controls are positioned for ease of use from the driving position.

Cons

One downside to the interior is the clutch pedal that’s found a bit too far from the right. But anyone going six feet will have some trouble fitting into the headlining. The rear seats are easily foldable to provide a 445-litre boot—a size much larger than the BMW 3-series. This size, however, could be troublesome for anyone that needs narrow-oriented spaces.Drivers will have some trouble accessing the clutch pedal due to its far right position. It will take some getting used to before you're able to get the hang of its position. Egress tends to be on the awkward size. And while the legroom is ample, it is still not enough for individuals going six feet and higher. Six footers should expect slight discomfort as they squeeze themselves by the headline. The boot size also doesn't seem enough, with the 445-litre boot still too narrow for bulkier loads. You'll have to make sure what you're loading fits just right into the space. The Cabriolet model offers more room at the roof, but does so by reducing rear seat space.

A History of the Audi A5

Initially unveiled in 2007 at the Melbourne and Geneva Motor Shows, the Audi A5 helped expand Audi’s model range. It was designed to compete with Audi’s high-end rivals in the luxury coupe market. Going against the sporty BMW 3 Series and the lavish Mercedes-Benz models, the A5 successfully combined Audi’s signature design aesthetic and dynamic performance for maximum driving experience.

The A5 is a typical coupe with a quite conservative style and personality that is recognizably Audi. The design was created by long time Audi car designer Walter de Silva, taking inspiration from the Nuvolari quattro (another de Silva-designed model). According to the designer, the A5 is the most beautiful car he’s ever designed. In 2009, the A5 was given the Design of the Year award by the Automobile magazine in appreciation of its elegance, effeciency, and visual appearance. Then in 12 February 2010, the German Design Council presented de Silva with a Design Award in recognition of his state-of-the-art A5 design.  The design award was handed to him during the International Ambiente Fair in Frankfurt.  

Describing the design as “progressive,”Audi lends the A5 an elegant and dynamic look that is intended to play on the emotions of the average coupe buyer – a marketing consideration that Audi takes advantage.
