With a choice of three body styles (Coupe, Sportback and Cabriolet) and three performance levels with the S5 and RS 5, the A5 line is pretty expansive. And with a turbo four-cylinder engine (252 horsepower) as well as a turbo V6 (354 and 444 horsepower) engines, in addition to quattro all-wheel drive, there's something for everyone. Several options are offered for dressing up the cabin, and the Audi virtual cockpit digital instrumentation adds an extra touch of sophistication to the overall package.
