2022 Audi S5 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2022 Audi A5?

The Audi A5 is available in three distinct body styles — coupe, convertible and four-door hatchback (Sportback) — and all come with standard all-wheel drive.

The base A5 engine is a 201-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that works with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. One step higher is a 261-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder paired with the same gearbox.

At the top of the performance lineup is the S5, which comes with a 349-hp, turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission. Competitors include the BMW 4 Series and Infiniti Q60.

What’s New on the 2022 Audi A5?

S line versions of the coupe and Sportback now come with a sport suspension. There’s also a new Black Optic Plus Package that includes black bumper accents, a matte-black grille with black badging, black mirror caps, black side sill blades and red-painted brake calipers. The S5 adds standard 19-inch wheels.

What Features in the 2022 Audi A5 Are Most Important?

Standard features include:

  • LED headlights with high-beam assist
  • Leather seats
  • Heated front seats
  • 1-inch touchscreen multimedia system
  • Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity
  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Lane departure warning

Available features include:

  • Audi Virtual Cockpit with 12.3-inch instrument panel screen
  • Ventilated front seats
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • 360-degree camera system
  • Head-up display
  • Bang & Olufsen premium stereo
  • Blind spot warning

Should I Buy the 2022 Audi A5?

The Audi A5 certainly spoils car shoppers for choice with its range of available body styles, but it comes up short on practicality due to a tight backseat that skimps on headroom. Trunk space in the convertible is also minimal. If you don’t need acres of space and want a refined luxury car with all-wheel drive and a classy cabin, the A5, in all its various forms, is worth a look.
