Parkers overall rating: 4.5 out of 5 4.5

The driver gets a great driving position, thanks to a steering wheel that adjusts for height and reach and a multi-adjustable seat (although adjustment is electric only on top models). Visibility is a problem from a number of angles - when cornering or turning out of junctions, the thick windscreen pillars obstruct the view, while a small rear screen makes for limited visibility out of the back.

The cabin itself is superbly constructed however and the layout is typical Audi - clear, easy to navigate and beautifully finished while all the controls work with real precision.

Although there are two seats in the back, these are strictly for children only. A lack of headroom makes it unsuitable for adults, while passengers with long legs will find the rear very cramped indeed. It’s also difficult to get in-and-out of. Aside from that the A5 is easy to get along with - the seats are comfortable while the interior oozes style and is meticulously put together.

On the move Audi A5 Coupe comfort levels mean it’s fairly serene, with wind and road noise suppressed at all but the highest speeds. The car is well insulated against engine noise too, even in the diesels.
