The A5 has occupied the middle of the Audi lineup since its debut as a 2008 model, in close relationship to the A4 and A6. Now in its second generation, the A5 can be the “just right” choice for an executive who can’t decide between the even-numbered options.
The 2019 Audi A5 is available in three body styles: coupe (two-door), Cabriolet (two-door soft-top convertible), and Sportback (four-door liftback). Coupe and Cabriolet models are set up for four passengers, and the Sportback adds capacity for a fifth passenger. The coupe gets a 108.8-inch wheelbase, the Cabriolet’s is a smidge longer at 108.9 inches, while the Sportback’s is stretched to 111.0 inches. There are also S5 variants of each body style, along with an RS5 Coupe and RS5 Sportback. A5 prices start at $44,200 for the Sportback and coupe and $51,200 for the Cabriolet. Here are 10 Audi A5 competitors to consider, listed alphabetically.
