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.

Audi A5 Coupe safety is unquestionably strong. There are six airbags, ABS and electronic stability control (ESP) - which features hydraulic brake assist along with optional cornering lights. The new intelligent key can also store important information, such as the vehicle’s current mileage or warning messages from the information system. The data allows after-sales staff access to the information they need for servicing quickly and easily.

Reliability

This is the first time that some of the components in this car have been used (usually parts are shared across models). However, Audi A5 Coupe reliability will be same as the rest of the German car maker's line-up, so anything other than complete dependability would be a huge surprise.
