Which A5 does Edmunds recommend

Since all A5 models are mechanically identical and most features are available on all trim levels, we recommend starting with the base Premium model and adding essential features as you see fit. If you desire advanced safety features, however, the top-of-the-line Prestige trim is your only choice.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

The previous-generation Audi A5 was one of our favorite luxury two-doors. Sleek styling and a premium interior helped set it apart from its German rivals. It was getting a bit dated in the last few years, though, which is why we're happy to see the debut of the redesigned 2018 Audi A5.

For 2018, the coupe and convertible A5 models return, joined by a new hatchback (the Sportback) that has four doors. Seeing a four-door A5 might seem a little strange to you if you're used to the model just being a two-door. But like the bigger A7 hatchback, the new A5 Sportback enhances the car's cargo-carrying versatility. Other notable changes this year include a more powerful four-cylinder engine and the inclusion of Audi's latest technology and safety features.

Although we haven't yet tested the A5, we have driven the mechanically similar A4 sedan and higher-performing S5 coupe. With that background, we're confident stating Audi has another winner on its hands. The A5 checks all of the boxes required in the class for performance, comfort, luxury and technology. It gets an additional edge for its sleek styling, elegantly simple cabin and easy-to-use infotainment system. On top of that, there are plenty of advanced safety features that its predecessor was missing. Pitted against the typical leaders in the class that include the BMW 4 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, we place the A5 at the top.

trim levels & features

The redesigned 2018 Audi A5 is available in its typical two-door coupe and convertible (Cabriolet) body styles as well as a new four-door hatchback (the Sportback). All A5s are available in Premium, Premium Plus or Prestige trims and are powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (252 horsepower, 273 pound-feet of torque). All-wheel drive is also included, as is a seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission. A six-speed manual transmission is only available on the A5 coupe.

Standard Premium trim features include 18-inch wheels, xenon headlights, heated mirrors, automatic wipers, a sunroof, keyless entry and ignition, selectable drive modes, tri-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, power front seats, folding rear seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth, a 7-inch infotainment display with Audi's MMI interface, a rearview camera, and a 10-speaker sound system with a CD player, two USB ports and HD radio. Low-speed frontal collision warning and mitigation is also included.

Stepping up to the Premium Plus trim gets you LED headlights, auto-dimming exterior mirrors, front and rear parking sensors, Audi's Connect Care (with 4G LTE connection and emergency telematics), rear collision mitigation, blind-spot monitoring, heated front seats, driver-seat memory functions and satellite radio.

The Prestige trim rounds out the lineup with a head-up display, a Bang & Olufsen premium audio system, simulated leather upholstery for the center console and armrests, a digital instrument panel, remote vehicle function controls via a smartphone app, a top-down parking camera system, an 8.3-inch infotainment display and a navigation system.

Most features on the upper trim levels are available on supporting trims as options. Other add-ons include 20-inch wheels, high-performance summer tires, sporty S line exterior embellishments, adaptive steering, a sport suspension, ventilated sport seats and a heated steering wheel.

The Prestige model is also eligible for the Driver Assistance package (adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, automatic high-beams and a traffic sign reader) and an adaptive suspension.

trim tested

Edmunds has not yet driven any version of the 2018 Audi A5. However, we've driven the related A4 and S5. Here's our first take on what's significant about it and what you can expect.

driving

If the mechanically similar A4 sedan is any indication, the A5 will rise to the top when it comes to performance. It will also score slightly above average for everyday drivability. We do suspect there will be a slight hesitation from the four-cylinder engine upon initial acceleration, though.

comfort

The A5's seats are firm and well shaped for hours of comfortable driving. The cabin should be as quiet and isolating as those of the A4 and S5 that we've evaluated, and the available adaptive suspension should smooth out the ride further.

interior

The A5 gets high marks for its modern and elegantly simple interior. Materials quality is excellent for the class, and the controls are just where you'd want them as a driver. The rear seats are rather small and best suited for smaller passengers.

utility

The A5's 11.6-cubic-foot trunk isn't the biggest in the class, but it should be enough for most cargo, and the flat load floor and handy hooks score it additional points. Interior storage is merely adequate to hold your personal items.

technology

Audi's MMI is one of the easier infotainment systems to operate, and the screen placement further reduces distraction. The available virtual instrument panel is as appealing to the eyes as it is useful and effective. It makes cutting-edge tech as accessible as it can be.

2nd Time A5 Owner, 5 Times Audi Owner
This car is a great followup to the prior generation A5. I bought the Sportback after owning the prior generation Coupe. Feels like the same car. The fit, finish and performance are excellent. The dealership Sewell in Houston is phenomenal. I love the MMI navigation and controls. My only complaint is the subscription based services for the Infotainment system should be monthly not paid in 3 year blocks. Also, the entire online and app integration isn't what you'd expect at this price point. The traditional auto makers need to take a lesson from Tesla on on-line/offline access. I was charged twice for the Infotainment subscription, Audi USA was useless to resolve and ultimately AT&T issued a refund. Pretty disappointed how Audi responded to that issue. Even the dealership couldn't get them to respond.
Ticks all the boxes... .almost
Performance is excellent for a 4cyl, particularly acceleration off the line. The car is very, very quiet on decent roads, and the interior is immaculate. It's not something you'll use to haul more than 2 people around for more than a few miles at a time, and I knew this going in. The storage room is exceptional for this size of car. Quattro system really makes you feel confident on the road. I absolutely love the look of this car both inside and out. The base safety systems that come with this car are very nice to have. Frustrations are few but I'll note them now. First, I wish they'd have made the gas tank a few gallons bigger, as I feel like range is too short if you're driving in the city. I am replacing a 2009 Acura TSX which had about a 16 gal tank, so it's a bit annoying. Second, Apple Carplay is really convenient and one reason I bought the car. However, it's glitchy. I don't know if it's Carplay in general, or as it relates to Audi, but they have programming problems that need fixes. It glitches out after Audi Presense is engaged, requiring you to unplug and replug your phone in to get it to work. Even with a brand new Apple cord, it fails to connect at times. I've had problems with it freezing, or crashing my phone while in the middle of navigation. I don't know if this is primarily an apple problem or an audi problem, but it can be maddening at times. I have an Iphone 6+, so it is a relatively 'older' phone, maybe that's some of it. Also, I was using 3rd party app Pandora, it could be from that. Last complaint is that basic front of cockpit storage is pretty inadequate. No sunglass storage, very little center console storage (probably for the better so I don't stash useless things). If I can get the Carplay glitches worked out I would say I'm completely happy with the car. The virtual cockpit is fun and useful, the large on dash screen as well, and the MMI system is very user friendly.
2018 Audi A5 Hatchback Rocks
Great car. Virtual Cockpit makes viewing map guidance a breeze. Bank & Olufsen radio rocks. MMI navigation is intuitive to learn. Only took a day or two to get the hang of the system. Considered an A-4, but decided on the A5 hatchback because of the increased versatility and giant cargo space compared to the sedan. The extra cost of an A5 over an A4 is well worth it.

We were already fans of the first-generation Audi A5, even as it neared the end of its production cycle, thanks to its sleek styling, decent performance and elegant interior. Now fully redesigned, the 2018 Audi A5 is even better and benefits from further advancements in performance, comfort and technology.

The 2018 Audi A5 is available in coupe and convertible body styles, along with a new Sportback four-door hatchback. Trim levels include the Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige, all of which are powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (252 horsepower, 273 pound-feet). All A5s also come standard with all-wheel drive and a seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission. A six-speed manual transmission is only available on the A5 coupe.

Standard Premium feature highlights include 18-inch wheels, automatic xenon headlights, a sunroof, keyless entry and ignition, selectable drive modes, frontal collision mitigation, tri-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 7-inch infotainment display with Audi's MMI interface, a rearview camera and a 10-speaker sound system.

The A5 Premium Plus trim adds LED headlights, auto-dimming exterior mirrors, front and rear parking sensors, Audi's Connect Care emergency telematics, blind-spot monitoring, heated front seats and satellite radio. At the top of the range, the Prestige trim comes with a head-up display, a Bang & Olufsen premium audio system, a virtual instrument panel, remote vehicle function controls via a smartphone app, a surround-view camera system, an 8.3-inch infotainment display and a navigation system.

Other add-ons include 20-inch wheels, high-performance summer tires, sporty S line exterior embellishments, adaptive steering, a sport suspension, ventilated sport seats and a heated steering wheel. If you want items in the Driver Assistance package (adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, automatic high beams and a traffic sign reader) or the adaptive suspension, however, you'll have to spring for the Prestige trim.

The most direct competitors include the BMW 430i and Mercedes-Benz C300 coupe; both are competitive in terms of starting price. But with all-wheel drive included as standard, the BMW and Benz are marginally more expensive when you add their respective AWD systems. From here, use all of Edmunds' information and tools to help you find your perfect 2018 Audi A5.
