Ten Second Review
Audi A5 Coupe Lease Review - When you're looking at the Audi A5 range there's not a single car in there which could be described as weak in terms of performance. There are some serious engines under the bonnets of the A5 series and the entry level engine is actually a 1.8 litre turbo model.
Now not many vehicle ranges could claim that their entry level engine is a 1.8L turbo, and this just goes to show the kind of capacity Audi has decided is appropriate here. The upper limit is a 3.0L which packs a serious punch and really allows for sports style driving!
In terms of handling the A5 has an admirable amount of grip and this allows it to take corners well. This grip is a very good thing as with so much power drivers might underestimate the amount of force their putting on the car when taking quick turns. One gripe is that the suspension is a little bouncy which can make the car a bit sensitive to bumps and dips in the road. A solution is to have the S line suspension system installed but this does mean in certain conditions the ride can be a bit firm. So it's trying to find a middle ground that suits you which is important.
Despite the engines being able to put out some serious power the noise levels from them isn't too drastic. They run smoothly and at an acceptable noise level. Inside the cabin any audible nuisances are really minimised thanks to a clever body design and well insulated seals.
Comfort and style is the name of the game when you step inside the new Audi A5 Coupe. With a well thought out interior that works well the positioning and upholstering of seating provides an enjoyable drive. Whilst it's not the most fancy on the market it still manages to maintain a high feeling of quality and class. Something which Audi do well to provide a luxury experience whilst keeping the money focused on mechanics.
