The 1.8 TFSI is the tamest and most economical car in the A5 range, it’s also the least expensive and undercuts the BMW 320i. There is a choice of gearbox but if you are enthusiastic enough of a driver to opt for the 8-spd multitronic you should really be considering one of the more powerful cars.
The A5 replaces the old A4 Cabriolet with a sleek new look and the more agile chassis of the A5 Coupe. The range of engines will be added to over time to include high performance S and RS models. Sadly the V8s are no more due to economy and emissions standards. The handling of the Audi A5 is excellent though not as involving as the BMW 3 Series Convertible. As with all Audi convertibles the roof is made from fabric with excellent sound and weather proofing without compromising luggage space.
