2015 Audi A5 Overview

John Diether
Automotive Editor - September 17, 2014

The stylish member of Audi's compact line, the A5 mixes sport and luxury in an eye-pleasing coupe body. While it's not as spacious as the related A4 sedan, the coupe retains some practical benefits like fine efficiency and a usable trunk.

What's New for 2015

The A5 gets some minor equipment revisions and a new Sport Plus package.

Choosing Your Audi A5

Available as a four-passenger coupe or soft-top convertible, the A5 carries a 2-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 220 horsepower. The coupe comes standard with all-wheel drive and your choice of a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission. The convertible starts out with front-wheel drive and a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The optional all-wheel drive system comes only with the eight-speed automatic.

Both body styles are available in three trim levels:


Carries a leather interior with power front seats, tri-zone climate control, Bluetooth phone and a 10-speaker sound system with satellite radio. The coupe gets a sunroof, while the convertible has a power top and wind deflector. Heated seats and a navigation system are available as standalone options.

Premium Plus

Gets the Premium's equipment and options as standard, plus keyless ignition, driver memory functions and heated auto-dimming exterior mirrors. The available Technology package adds enhanced web-based navigation, WiFi access, a rearview camera, parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring and Bluetooth audio. The Sport package comes with front sport seats, a sport-tuned suspension and adjustable driving settings. The Sport Plus adds a flat-bottom steering wheel, gloss black exterior accents and summer performance tires on 19-inch titanium-finish wheels. There's also the S Line Competition package, which adds sporty styling tweaks and additional glass black trim. Finally, a 14-speaker premium Bang & Olufsen sound system is available as an individual option.


Carries the Technology package and upgraded audio system as standard, plus adaptive headlamps. The Sport, Sport Plus and S Line Competition packages continue as options. Exclusive to the Prestige is the Driver Assist package, which adds adaptive cruise control, a color information display and dynamic-assist steering.

CarsDirect Tip

We consider the Sport package to be the worhiest add-on. It provides sports car-like handling with hardly any loss in ride comfort.
