Audi A5 Review
New to the Audi line up for 2008 is the all new A5, a two door, four seat coupe designed to take sales from the BMW 3 Series Coupe and the Mercedes CLK. As ever, it is everything you would expect from Audi, outstanding build quality with the latest Audi technology ensure the A5 won't just become an also ran.
Built on the same chassis as the all new Audi A4, the A5 is quite a large car and it's therefore somewhat surprising that there is not more interior space, up front and in the boot you won't have to compromise at all, however, there may be some grumbles from those who are not fortunate enough to grab a front seat, although Audi claim the A5 will comfortably seat four adults, those who have breached the six foot mark may struggle on longer journeys if confined to the rear.
With a choice of petrol and diesel engines at launch all A5's come with a fair bit of kit as standard that includes 17-inch alloy wheels, an MP3-compatible single CD radio, a trip computer, xenon headlamps, electric front windows, dual zone climate control, electrically heated and adjustable door mirrors, automatic headlamps and automatic windscreen wipers, speed-sensitive power steering, parking sensors and an electronic stability programme.
The A5 may not handle quite as sharply as the 3 Series Coupe but in every other department it appears to be more than a match and no doubt the legions of loyal Audi customers will be more than happy with Audi's new mid size coupe.
Like the looks of the new Audi A5, why not check out the BMW 3 Series Coupe.
