Used Audi A5 Coupe (2007 - 2016) Costs

Review by David Ross on
Last Updated: 29 Jul 2015
Sleek and elegant German coupes are nothing new, though the A5 is the first of this size that Audi has built in a long time. It’s a good all-round package that comes close to matching the BMW 3-Series Coupe and Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe with a fine range of engines, a high quality interior and an enjoyable driving experience.

Running costs

The Audi A5 Coupe running costs won't be cheap but on par with rivals. It’s a high quality product, backed up with the prestige of the Audi name, which means it should be in demand and, as a result, hold onto its value well. Audi servicing can be on the expensive side, but there is a good network of independents who offer a cheaper alternative. Plus, if you’re a low-mileage driver the service intervals can be up to two years.

Emissions summary

The Audi A5 Coupe emissions ratings might seem high but it is a surprisingly green model and with an average of 183g/km CO2. This is helped by the efficient diesel and smaller turbocharged petrol engines which balance power with economy. The greenest model is the 2.0 TDI which emits 140g/km of CO2 and returns an impressive 53mpg. From late 2009, 2.0 TDI and 2.0 TFSI models come with an automatic start-stop system to help reduce emissions and increase fuel economy.
