If you’re looking for something sporty and sleek in 2019, look no further than the 2019 Audi A5. It’s available as a coupe or, for those who really want to embrace the sports-car lifestyle, a convertible.
The A5 is miles differently from the previous model, the A4, offering a more eye-catching design and more engine options. It definitely has its personality and drives entirely different than its predecessor.
The A5 combines a sport-tuned suspension and Quattro all-wheel drive with a four-cylinder turbocharged engine to produce one of the most agile, fun-to-drive vehicles on the road today. Tech fiends won’t be disappointed either — the A5 has lots of semi-autonomous safety features and integrates seamlessly with all major smartphones. Plus, the major complaint that most people have with sports cars — the lack of cargo space — is not a problem with the A5, which can go toe-to-toe with larger sedans on that front.
All of this is available for a modest $46,000, a price that can’t be beaten for a sports car that offers everything the A5 does.
2019 brings some new features and options for the Audi A5, including new 18- and 20-inch wheel styles, a new Black Optics appearance package, bonus safety features for the Premium’s Convenience package, and a self-parking feature for the Prestige models.
The Black Optics package includes a sports suspension, black exterior trim, and mirror caps, flat-bottomed steering wheel, 19-inch dark-finished wheels with summer tires, a black spoiler, and black interior trim with blue contrast stitching on the seats.
The Audi A5 brings everything you’d expect to the table — and then it adds some more. That turbocharged engine combined with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission produces 252 horsepower and 273 pounds per foot of torque and is quick to respond to the slightest pressure on the gas or brake.
The car can go from zero to 100 km/h in under six seconds, but that doesn’t mean it’s a gas guzzler. It boasts an impressive fuel economy rating of fewer than 9.0 liters per 100 kilometers.
The A5 is as agile a vehicle as one could wish for, with the Quattro all-wheel-drive system and perfectly-weighted steering making curvy roads a joy to take on.
The S5 offers greater power, producing 354 horsepower and 369 pounds per foot of torque that drive this Audi to 100 km/h in about 4.7 seconds. If that’s still not fast enough for you, consider the RS5, with 444 horsepower and 443 pounds per foot of torque. It reaches 100 km/h in under four seconds flat.

The cabin lives up to the standard that consumers have come to expect from Audi. The interior is roomy and constructed from quality materials, with conveniences such as a thigh extension for those with long limbs and a motorized arm that positions the seat belt within easy reach.
For the techies, Audi has included a 7.0-inch or 8.3-inch (optional) infotainment display, power outlets, Bluetooth phone, and audio streaming, USB connectivity, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto support, and a top-of-the-line 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system.
The coupe, especially, offers a large trunk and with the option to fold the rear seats down, there’s enough room to stow up to 16 carry-on suitcases. Lots of pockets and cubbies make handy containers for snacks, pens, phones, and other small necessities.
Although the A5 has yet to be tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, it has received a Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Automated emergency braking is a standard feature, and other essential safety features include adaptive cruise control (optional) and forward-collision warning (standard).
As you can see, the A5 is attractive to buyers for a variety of reasons. It has the sleek, sophisticated appearance that Audi is known for, and it’s sure to draw attention wherever it goes. The power and sheer driveability of the vehicle make it one of the most fun sports cars on the market. With quick acceleration and clean, sharp steering, it indeed is a joy to drive. The cabin is the last word in comfort and luxury, with high-end finishes, fun tech options, and award-winning safety features.
