Editor's Overview

All-new for 2018, the A5 Coupe and Cabriolet are the sportier, free-spirited siblings of the A4. Though based on that compact-luxury sedan, these models emphasize design and driver enjoyment, traits made evident by the snug rear seats, similar to its German rivals the Mercedes-Benz C-Class coupe and BMW 4 Series. The 5-door A5 Sportback packs style and versatility.

The sound quality the stock system has to it.

My vehicle is excellent. The tech can be tricky sometimes. Otherwise it is great. It drives very well. Steering is great. Sound quality is excellent. Speed is smooth and coincides well with how the car drives. More trunk space than what appears from the outside.

- Jackson S
