Model Highlights

The A5 and S5 are closely related, but the performance-focused S5 model offers improved handling, a sportier look and a powerful V8. The A5 is offered with only a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, which produces 211 horsepower. S5 coupes get a 354-horsepower, 4.2L V8, while S5 Cabriolets offer a 333-horsepower, 3.0L V6.

Most coupe models are offered with either a 6-speed manual or Audi's new 8-speed Tiptronic automatic, but A5 Cabriolet models are only offered with the 8-speed or a Multitronic continuously variable (CVT) automatic. S5 Cabriolet models come with a quick-shifting 7-speed S-tronic dual-clutch automatic. Tiptronic-equipped cars feature manual controls to command shifts in hilly terrain or if needed for passing.

The A5 drives and rides like a comfortable grand touring coupe, yet has a responsive enough feel to satisfy most drivers who would rather have had a sports car. With the 2.0L engine, the A5 performs respectably, yet achieves an EPA rating of 22 mpg city, 30 mpg highway. At the top of the line, the S5 coupe's V8 provides a completely different kind of experience, driving like a quiet, exceptionally refined version of a muscle car. Overall, the S5 handles like a smaller vehicle yet cruises in serene comfort.

Aiding handling is an optional sport rear differential, which controls torque distribution among the rear wheels and helps achieve more balanced dynamics; the system works together with the standard electronic stability control system. Four-wheel disc brakes with brake assist are also standard, as is a vehicle-speed-assisted Servotronic steering system.

Audi Drive Select, available in Prestige models, permits the selection of individual performance and handling profiles, including suspension firmness, and controls how the throttle and transmission respond.

A5 and S5 Cabriolet models come with a power soft top that can retract in just 15 seconds. By using a soft top, Audi was able to make more trunk space available. And by using a 3-layer top and glass rear window, the interior remains quite quiet. Cabriolet models get seat-mounted head/chest airbags, knee airbags and active roll bars located behind the seats. Also of note is that front occupants will stay comfortable even in chilly weather with the top down, thanks to head-level heating built into the seats.

The 2012 Audi A5 comes in Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige trims. Premium models include a panoramic sunroof, heater mirrors and washer nozzles, leather upholstery, automatic climate control and cruise control, while Premium Plus models get a host of conveniences including xenon headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, LED running lamps, tri-zone climate control, 6-step heated seats, iPod integration, Bluetooth hands-free calling and a HomeLink garage-door opener. Prestige models upgrade to memory power seat and mirror functions, an advanced key system for keyless entry and ignition, 505-watt Bang & Olufsen audio and voice-control navigation with Audi's Multi Media Interface (MMI). S5 models are available in Premium Plus and Prestige only.

Top options include a Navigation Plus package on Premium Plus models, which adds MMI, voice controls, backup sensors, a rearview camera and an in-dash navigation system. On several of the models, a Sport Package brings unique 19-inch wheels with summer performance tires, plus a sport suspension and steering-wheel paddle-shifters.


Model News

Audi has left the A5 mostly as-is for 2012, save for the shuffling of a few options. The Premium Plus gets an available SiriusXM satellite radio, Advanced Key and rear parking sensors and backup camera. The Prestige trim now includes standard navigation and Audi side-assist.


Value Writeup

With both coupe and Cabriolet models, the Audi A5 and S5 hit the target on design and styling, and both the A5 and S5 are quite possibly the two of the best-looking touring cars inside and out. Interior comfort and ride quality are both top notch, with the coupe making an especially good long-distance cruiser for two. Audi says that the A5 and S5 Cabriolet models have best-in-class trunk space.
