The Audi A5's greatest strengths have been its timeless styling and confidence-inspiring driving dynamics. After nine years, it has been surpassed by competitors that have received recent redesigns, but the Audi still represents a solid choice for those who don't need the latest and greatest tech.
After nine years, this first-generation Audi A5 is set to be replaced by an all-new model next year. In its final year of the current generation, the 2017 A5 is only offered in one well-appointed trim.
Even though the 2017 Audi A5 has fallen behind the times somewhat and a replacement is coming for 2018, it still has plenty to offer. From sleek styling to confident on-road manners, it deserves a spot on your short list of luxury coupes.
