With its elegant European design cues, the 2015 Audi A5 turns some heads. Its good looks are just the beginning, though. The A5 also offers an upscale cabin, a supple ride and plenty of available technology features.
The 2015 Audi A5 is available in coupe and cabriolet body styles. Both seat four. There are three trims: Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige. A turbocharged four-cylinder engine pairs with a manual or automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is standard on every A5. (The higher-performance Audi S5 and RS 5 are reviewed separately.)
The A5 carries over mostly unchanged for 2015.
The 2015 Audi A5 prominently wears its marque’s signature grille. It’s flanked by angled headlights. Sculpting on the hood and side panels adds a touch of refinement, as well as provides a sense of movement. Expressive fenders and the sleek profile further help the A5 to stand out among its peers. A muscular rear end rounds out the look. Base models ride on 18-inch alloy wheels.
Other standard equipment includes xenon headlights, LED running lights and taillights, fog lights, automatic windshield wipers and a tilt-only sunroof in the coupe. Higher trims bring in adaptive headlights, 19-inch wheels and additional black trim.
The interior design of the 2015 A5 manages to be understated, yet striking. As expected from the luxury brand, high-end materials are found throughout the cabin. Driver-oriented gauges reinforce the sporty nature of the A5. The front seats are supportive without being overly firm. Cargo capacity is 10.2 cubic feet in the cabriolet and 12.2 cubic feet in the coupe.
Base models come with tri-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery and eight-way power front seats. Heated front seats are optional. Go up the trim line, and you’ll get auto-dimming mirrors, two-tone leather upholstery, front sport seats, a sport steering wheel, gloss black trim, a black cloth headliner, a neck-level heating system and ventilated front seats.
Under the hood of the 2015 Audi A5 is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 220 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. On coupes, that powerplant pairs with a six-speed manual transmission. An eight-speed automatic transmission is optional. The automatic transmission is standard on cabriolets. Fuel economy tops out at an EPA-estimated 22/32 mpg city/highway.
The A5 offers an ideal mix of comfort and performance. The turbocharged engine provides solid off-the-mark acceleration. The lightweight sheet metal provides excellent poise and stellar body control, making for an enjoyable ride, no matter the route or distance.
The 2015 A5 comes with an impressive array of infotainment and safety features. Leading the way are a 6.5-inch display, Bluetooth phone connectivity and a 10-speaker sound system with a CD player, satellite radio and iPod interface. A 12- or 14-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system, 7-inch screen, Bluetooth audio connectivity, mobile Wi-Fi, a navigation system, a DVD player and HD Radio are available up the trim line.
A Technology package brings in front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera and a blind spot monitor on all but the base model. Adaptive cruise control also is an option.
