Audi A5 (2017) review: Sporty looks, refined drive

The Audi A5 was launched in 2007 and revised in 2009 to put doors into the back of the Coupé version for a more conventional five-door arrangement, the Sportback as Audi calls it. So solid was the A5 that the second-generation A5 has only just appeared, launching late 2016.

The Audi A5 has always been one of our favourite Audi models. Those Coupé looks and that sporty stance stand it aside from many of the saloons that dominate this car segment. Flanked by the Audi A4 and the Audi A6, the A5 also affords better looks than the Audi A7 in our opinion (the executive sports saloon nearing the top of Audi’s models).

There’s just something about the A5’s proportions that we’ve always liked, although we have to admit, the charms of the Coupé looks are outweighed by the conventional practicality of the Sportback.
