Unlike the A4, the Audi only comes as a coupe and not as a sedan, wagon or cabriolet.  In addition, it only has one choice of engine; however this engine is tuned for maximum thrills and performance.  The engine for the A5 is a 3.2L V6 that offers a very peppy 265 horsepower.  Married to this engine is a choice of two transmissions- a six speed manual or a six speed automatic.  This triptronic transmission is available with paddle shifters on the steering wheel giving you an Italian sports car feel.

The A5 offers 18 inch alloy wheels which grip very nicely on the curves and an electronic stability control system.  In addition, if you want your Audi A5 to ride with a very sporty feel, definitely look into the S line Sport Package.

Within the vehicle there is seating for four which is very comfortable and this car offers nice headroom for taller adults.  You will also find a wonderful Bang & Olufsen audio system, navigation system that is voice activated, cruise control and even Audi Side Assist.  The sticker price for the A5 is a decent $40K.
