Car and Driver


Sharing its running gear with the A4 sedan, the 2011 Audi A5 Coupe and Cabriolet do a lot more with the meat and potatoes they're given than do the four-door counterparts.

Step back from its strong, deep grille and the A5 reveals a muted aggression that's perfectly in line with Audi's lineup, while it grabs some of the sculptural suppleness of musclecars like the Chevy Camaro into its styling languages. The sideview's balanced, and striking. The rear haunches are perfectly posed. The sexy rear end with just enough detail to accent its shape, not overwhelm it, and distinctive rear LED lighting shows up on most models, as it's becoming an Audi hallmark.

The A5's cockpit is equal to the sheetmetal's high design standard. Inside, the Audi A5 feels lavish and luxurious, with high-grade materials and plenty of attention to small details like the finely graded instruments and the light grace notes of metallic trim on switches and buttons. It's a slightly busy dash shape that may be a touch less sophistication than Audi's interiors from just a generation ago, but it works well and is executed with care. Drivers can opt for two-tone leather and suede seats, and can option up to aluminum or piano-black trim on the dash, replacing the usual wood.

 

 

Conclusion

Expressive sheetmetal and a luxuriously functional cabin give the 2011 Audi A5 a cool character all its own.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
