Review: Audi A5 2021


Review: Audi A5 2021

The Audi A5 is a classic-looking contract hire coupe with great handling and impressive engines.

The overall impression is of a well-made and impressively designed car with a comfortable interior and a dashboard that impresses.

All the materials used are premium quality, and the interior goes head-to-head with more expensive coupes.

And while there's plenty of space for the driver and front seat passenger, the rear seats could be a struggle for tall adults because of the sloping roofline.

Audi A5 car lease

The Audi A5 car lease is taking on the likes of the Mercedes C-Class Coupe and this makes for an interesting alternative.

To help boost its attractive qualities in a competitive segment, the A5 has lots of equipment and a decent-sized boot.

Engines for the A5 include a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine producing either 148 bhp, 201 bhp or 261 bhp.

For those drivers who are wanting better fuel economy, there's a 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine producing either 161 bhp or 201 bhp.

Contract hire Audi S5

And for those who are wanting sporty performance the contract hire Audi S5 is worth considering with its 3.0-litre mild-hybrid V6 diesel engine producing 342 bhp.

There's also the incredibly fast RS5 which uses a 2.9-litre V6 engine to deliver 444 bhp.

For most drivers, it must be said, the 2.0-litre petrol engines are adequate for everyday needs - this is a comfortable car to drive around town and it is an impressive motorway cruiser.

The grip is strong, particularly when cornering at speed, and the steering gives good feedback. The A5 always feels composed and calm even on winding country roads.

The power is delivered using a seven-speed automatic transmission and it reacts well to the steering wheel paddles.

Fastest A5

The fastest A5 is the one with the engine producing 261 bhp which manages a 0 to 62 mph sprint time of just 5.5 seconds and delivers a top speed of 155mph.

The best fuel economy comes from the 2.0-litre diesel engine with fuel consumption of 59mpg and emissions of 125g/km, which makes for a reasonable Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) band.

This is also a safe car with Euro NCAP giving it five stars for crash testing.

Safety equipment for the A5 includes autonomous emergency braking, electronic stability control, a pre-sensing system and anti-lock brakes.

Leasing the A5

Leasing the A5 means drivers get to enjoy a premium interior with lots of leather and aluminium to give it a modern and comfortable look.

The dashboard is simply gorgeous with high-quality materials being used.

The virtual cockpit consists of a 12.3-inch display which replaces the traditional instrument panel and there's the option of a large colour satnav display.

There's also a 10.1-inch touchscreen which has voice control and is easy-to-use.

Lots of equipment

The A5 comes with lots of equipment including satnav, smartphone connectivity and DAB radio.

There's also LED headlights, keyless start, multi-zone climate control and automatic wipers and lights.

Other models come with larger wheels, privacy glass, quality Nappa leather upholstery and a different steering wheel.

The Vorsprung trim is the range-topper which features a panoramic sunroof, parking assistance, heated seats, adaptive suspension and a premium sound system.

A5 Coupe is a great looking car to lease

Essentially, the Audi A5 Coupe is a great looking car to lease and is easy to live with on a daily basis and it makes for a nice touring vehicle for weekends away. It's certainly a contract hire choice that should be shortlisted and given a road test.
