The 2013 A5 comes in just a single trim level, 2.0T Premium, but it has a pair of large packages that add in more premium features. The Premium Plus package comes in at an additional $3,301 and it adds in features like: LED taillights, xenon plus headlights with LED daytime running lights, heated front seats, Bluetooth integration and iPod integration. The Prestige Package comes in at an extra $8,789 and adds in tons more features, like: adapting headlights, Audi Advanced Key, Audi MMI Navigation, blind-spot monitoring with LED indicators and a 14-speaker, 505-watt Bang & Olufsen sound system. Though these packages add in premium features, the 2.0T Premium is no slouch, as it features an array of high-end features that anyone would expect of a premium coupe. Additionally, the 2.0-liter engine under the hood nets the Audi A5 a 6.2- to 6.4-secon 0-to-60 mph sprint while getting 20 to 22 mpg city and 30 to 32 mpg highway.
