2008 Audi A5 Review
This review was written when the 2008 Audi A5 was new.
The all-wheel drive Audi A5 is considered by many critics to be luxurious and eye-catching. Still, its performance isn't as sporty as its competitors.
All-new for 2008, the Audi A5 is considered by many critics to be luxurious, eye-catching, and powerful. "With its curvaceous yet muscular styling, strong performance and finely tailored cabin, the 2008 Audi A5 personifies the luxury sport coupe," writes Edmunds. Still, many test drivers say it lacks much of the oomph commonly associated with sport cars and performs like a grand tourer instead.
The A5 features a 3.2-liter V6 engine. A sportier S5 trim is also available.
- "It's practical and comfortable enough for everyday driving with enough style and performance to make a statement." -- Forbes
- "Other cars may excel at a given quality or quantity, but few can match the overall balance afforded by the affordable A5 or performance value S5. Both offer impressively handsome styling and top-notch engineering." -- New Car Test Drive
