The Best Of Both Worlds! Luxury/Sporty

This car has met my needs in many ways. It gets great gas milage in the city and on the highway. It's a smooth running car for a smaller car. When you get behind the wheel you feel the luxury and when you get on the highway you feel sporty in it as you drive by other cars and you get that second look by other drivers. With the 2.0T quattro Tiptronic you will never have a problem passing a semi truck on the highway. This engine has the power to leave others in the dust! I love the fact that it has a sim slot and 2 sd slots for adding a variety of music for your long trips on the highways. Bluetooth and even an iPod cable for more of your favorite music. User friendly technology in all aspects of this car.


A styling classic

I've wanted an A5 for years. The styling of the car is outstanding. I just cant stop looking at it. I struggled for a bit with the A5 vs. the S5. I was really looking for the horsepower, but I couldn't pass on the value proposition of the A5, and was impressed with the capability of the 2.0T matched with the 8 speed auto transmission. It really is a quick car. It also is a lighter front end than the 6 cylinder S5, so it doesn't push as much in corners. I bought the A5 Premium Plus Coupe with the competition package, so the ride is firm, but very compliant, and not really overbearing. The sport seats are firm, but comfortable. The steering is little light (overboosted), but not aggravating. The brakes are perfect for pressure and feel and the throttle is deliberate (read: longer travel). I am 6'1", and if you are taller, your head will probably rub the headliner.


Convertible Heaven

I was shopping for eight months until I found my A5 Quattro convertible. White with black top and 19 inch wheels. The first car I've ever seen with two-tone leather seats - they are stunning! I've driven it for 2000 miles now. The highway economy is clearly over 30 MPG. The most comfortable car I've ever had. Acceleration is outstanding. I get a ton of compliments on the car. It's a real eye-popper. The backseats fold down for extra cargo carrying capacity. A really well designed car. Contrary to what I had read about media controls, I really like that the controls are at my fingertips and not on the dash. I wish I had bought one years ago!


Appeals to both sides of your brain

The Audi A5 Cabriolet is an ideal combination of practicality (AWD, safety, MPG) and fun (it's a convertible after all)!


First car I've LOVED in a long time

I've had Audi convertibles since moving to Maine 10 years ago, as Audi makes the only all-wheel-drive convertible. (And I've nearly always had convertibles.). But new Audis are way out of my price range, so I've always bought pre-owned A-4's. This time, I splurged--still pre-owned (2013), but an A-5. First of all, visually, the lines are a lot nicer. Just a bit longer, but it loses the boxy look of the A-4. Second, my 2007 A-4 had a hesitation when I hit the gas. The A-5 has great pickup and is an incredibly smooth ride. The interior is quietly elegant without being showy. Unbelievably comfortable--Audi really improved the seats. For the first time in a while, I'm enjoying driving more than getting there!


Manual A5 Audi

I love this car. I wanted to get the best of both worlds - a luxury car and a sports car. While the A5 is not a 'sports car' per say - I opted to get the manual transmission and even in Los Angeles traffic I have no regrets. The car is nimble, quick and has tons of speed. As far as looks, I am really happy with it and get lots of compliments. I can take it to the opera, plays and yet enjoy open roads to Vegas or driving on PCH. This car is great. I maintain it regularly and have not had any issues. Keeping this car!


Comfortable ride. Great style

So far so good. Enjoying the ride. Just what we were looking for. Can't wait for summer and top down weather


Cruiser Not Performer

Very comfortable highway cruiser. Not very fast or agile. Good looking. Get the convertible if you can.


Audi A5 Preowned

I have only owned this vehicle for less than 30 days. The more I become familiar with it , the more it exceeds my expectations. So far, it has been a good purchased.


Love, Love, Love it!

I've now owned 2 Audi Convertibles. My first was a 2007, which I sold last week and 2 days later I bought my second. I hope I'm still driving when it's time yo buy my 3rd.
