2016 Audi A5 Walk Around


Audi A5 styling is timeless, and it looks like a more expensive car. It isn’t daring, just sculpted with grace, and it definitely has presence.

The A5 Coupe has muscular haunches and classic lines. The Cabriolet looks good too. Too bad the deep, open-jawed grille, tall and oblong, seems too large and abstract, lacking definition that might separate it from a car bra at first glance. But the LED lighting makes it all good at night.

Interior

The A5 seats four, not five. Head, leg and shoulder room in the front is good, while the rear is too tight for adults; even with the coupe’s long doors, it’s hard to climb in and out of the rear. The cabin is well laid out and the controls are light. The seats are well padded and well bolstered.

The cabin design is clean and simple, and the materials high grade. The intricate instruments and aluminum trim make it feel high end. The two-tone leather and suede seats on our model used piano-black trim.

Rear visibility is poor a result of the thick C-pillars that look so good on the outside. Storage space is good, with the rear seats folded flat and open to the trunk with a good 16.3 cubic feet of space on its own. Cabriolets cut it to 11.3 cubic feet for the trunk, plus even less rear legroom.

The MMI controller makes it easy to tune things with the joystick. Google Earth and Street View shows some of the best images we’ve seen on a GPS.

The Cabriolet comes with a wind deflector that works well. It stores efficiently in the trunk in a bag or can be left in your garage when not needed.
