The Audi A5 Coupe quattro won't blow you away with massive performance figures, but instead offers a refined and capable driving experience that will leave you most satisfied. The A5 Coupe is only available with a single engine and transmission, which does limit new buyers who would possibly want something faster. Still, again, the A5 Coupe is plenty fast enough for the majority of drivers. The 0-60 sprint takes only 5.3 seconds, according to Audi, and the A5 Coupe will continue on to a top speed of 130 mph. The BMW 430i xDrive will hit 60 in exactly the same amount of time. If you want more go, you'll have to look at the S5 coupe, which offers a turbocharged six-cylinder engine and a zero to sixty sprint time of only 4.4 seconds.
You might get three trim levels, but you only get one choice when it comes to the engine and transmission. The Audi A5 Coupe moves with surprising eagerness thanks to a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which in this configuration develops 261 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque with the help of a 12-volt mild-hybrid electric system. Power is sent to all fours via a seven-speed S Tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission. This engine doesn't punch you with oodles of torque from the word go but rather feeds torque over a wide range, which makes it feel predictable and quick. In the city, the engine and transmission work well together; there's always enough response to get you where you need to be. On the highway, the A5 has enough power to carry the car with confidence, and overtaking is done with ease. The numbers might not sound grand, but the real-world performance from this car is excellent. The transmission should also get a shoutout: you don't get a manual, but the DSG box in this car is crisp and responsive and feels best when left to do its own thing.

With only one engine and transmission option to go for, the Audi A5 coupe delivers the same fuel consumption across all trim levels. The A5 strikes an outstanding balance between performance and frugality thanks to its small capacity 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. When driven with a light foot, it will return decent fuel economy figures. The Audi A5 Coupe will deliver gas mileage figures of 24/32/27 mpg on the city/highway/combined cycles, which is commendable. The BMW 4 Series Coupe will achieve 25/34/28 mpg in rear-wheel drive configuration, but the AWD 4 Series will match the Audi A5 quattro by returning 23/33/27 mpg.
With a 15.3-gallon fuel tank on board, the A5 will manage a maximum range of around 413 miles.
