Apple CarPlay™ and Google™ Android Auto™ smartphone integration come standard on the A5 Coupe, ensuring you and your passengers stay connected at all stages of your journey.

What the Critics Say

"A turbocharged four-cylinder engine provides plenty of hustle, while a sport-tuned suspension and standard all-wheel drive make the A5 one of the most sure-footed cars in its class. All the modern high-tech gadgetry such as smartphone integration and semi-autonomous safety features are accounted for as well." - Car & Driver

"Overall, the A5 Sportback does a good job of making the standard A4 sedan look restricted by its 20th century three-box formula. The price premium over a comparable A4 is negligible, with the Sportback landing right in the middle of A5 coupe price territory as well, which will make it an easy option to pick." - Autoweek
