The 2008 Audi A5 makes a sacrifice or two for its beautiful exterior styling. Back seat space is tight, but quality construction is plentiful. The A5's front seats are some of our favorites in this niche. Motor Trend says they "embrace occupants [like] Dr. Heimlich." Edmunds says they have "all-day touring comfort." ConsumerGuide found it tough to get "a comfortable driving position."
The A5's high beltline helps it deliver lots of trunk space, on the magnitude of some four-door sedans: "large for a sedan, let alone a coupe," Edmunds says.
Audi's reputation for interior quality follows suit in the A5 coupe. "The A5's cabin impresses," Edmunds notes. Cars.com admires its leather seats and aluminum, piano-black and wood trim. Automobile finds it almost "impossible not to be impressed" by the A5's interior.
