Audi A5 review: handsome looks, but can it beat BMW and Mercedes?

Just be aware that a lot of the exciting technology on the A5, such as the Virtual Cockpit display, must be specified as an optional extra, often in conjunction with an expensive bundle of equipment.

Our favourite version

2.0 TFSI Sport S-tronic, list price £33,445

Options you should add: Metallic paint (£645) , Hill hold assist (£75), Technology pack (£1,110 for a larger central screen, 36-month internet subscription and phone signal booster/wireless charging), Virtual cockpit (£250)

Verdict 7/10

The Audi A5 is a very desirable car, but given its sleek styling and powerful engines we can’t help but wish it was slightly more fun to drive. And while the interior is classy, you have to spend a lot on optional extras to get the best from it.
