Audi A5 Sedan Review - Audi Reviews South Africa
Thereís no such thing as a bad Audi A5, but our favourite is the 2.0 TFSI. In everyday driving itís plenty quick enough, yet it still averages the best part of 90km/h.
Whichever engine you go for, the dealer should be willing to offer a discount. Savings of over R10 000 shouldnít be out of the question. Resale values are strong, too, so expect to get back as much as half of the original price in three yearsí time.
The queue of willing buyers will be bigger if you choose wisely from the options' list. Leather upholstery and xenon headlights are standard, but a CD multichanger, cruise control and satellite navigation are desirable extras.
Pro's and Con's
Pro: The A5 is classy, solidly-built and desirable. Its performance is strong, whichever engine you choose, and its handling generally composed
Con: Even by coupe standards, rear leg- and headroom are tight. Itís not as sharp to drive as a BMW 3-Series Coupe, and the ride is poor in S line models.
