A5 Sportback
"This is the best car I have owned. Previously I had two Lexus (Lexi?); this car is far, far superior. Purchased in February 2018; and have 18,000 miles on it. The car's trip computer shows I have averaged 30.7 mpg over that period. I regularly get 40-41 mpg on trips and 27-28 mpg in town. Excellent mileage for a car this size. I chose Glacier white with Beige interior (took me awhile to find it); and have received numerous compliments on the car and its styling. With the back seats down, it will hold 12-14 bags of mulch, so who needs a boxy SUV? The Bang & Olufsen radio is great for long trips. The Virtual Cockpit puts maps and driving directions right in front of you; and precludes the need to constantly look at the center screen. Two minor irritants - the cup holders are placed too far forward and make it difficult to insert a "big gulp" cup; the front USB port is not illuminated, while the USB port under the armrest is illuminated. Go figure. "

Great mileage. Service is pricey; but that is inherent with German cars. I had to Lexus (Lexi?) previously; and this car is far superior.

Great convertible
"This is our second A5 convertible and it is better than the 2010 before. The interior is much more driver friendly and the power difference is noticeable. One reason for the change was the improvements to the top compared to the older models. The rear glass is now sealed and installed in a much better way and looks even better than before. This car is great in all weather and great in snow. We always get compliments in this car and it's easy to see why. The service has been normal items like oil changes for both the 2010 and this one. Very well built cars worth the money. "
Interior

5.0

The virtual dash is customizable and very easy to read at a glance. The nav system is perfect and the ergonomics are spot on.
Exterior

5.0

The styling is unique to convertibles and top-down there isn't a better looking car out there.
Performance

Lots of power for a four cylinder. Still too much turbo lag but it loves to drive fast. Handling gets better as the speeds climb.
Family

5.0

Back seats that are functional and roomy enough. Trunk space can handle the gear.
Cost

5.0

For the money and style, there isn't a better convertible out there. Quattro grip is very safe and there aren't many out there with the features for the money.

Awesome car
"I love my A5. Even if it’s not an RS model, it can still kick some butt. Great handling. Beautiful interior and features. Great on gas, if not driving aggressively. As far as reliability goes, nothing to complain yet. Had it for bit more than a year. I have the prestige model. A bit pricey but worth it. "

Enough room for kids in the back and good space in the trunk. The gate makes a big difference for bulky items.

3rd Audi we've owned
"base engine has plenty of pep and the car handles beautifully. Interior finishes are great and look good. only downside is the rear deck is flimsy and I have already broken the mounting projections by pushing it too hard into the mounting slots."

Perfect SUV
"Perfect mid-size hauler/sports car. My wife’s car, that I purloin as often as I can. Quiet, smooth, tight ride for a tall SUV. It is the beautiful Azores Green, a real head turner."
