The 2008 Audi A5 is a new mid-size coupe with some Audi A4 running gear under its skin. The S5 ups the power and style with more flamboyant add-ons and a big V-8 under the hood.
To look at the 2008 Audi A5, it's difficult to believe that it's considered entry level. Jalopnik says it's "simply smashing." Cars.com says it has "piercing, downward-slanting headlamps."
Edmunds thinks it's "curvaceous yet muscular,” while Cars.com says it’s “instantly recognizable as an Audi," and Kelley Blue Book agrees that it's "elegant" inside and out.
Inside, the 2008 Audi A5 has a nicely detailed, even lavish dash decorated in high-quality trim. The display screen for Audi's Multi-Media Interface (MMI) dominates the top of the instrument panel; MMI is used to access many of the functions for audio and climate control functions. The interior is "more sporty than luxurious," according to ConsumerGuide, but Automobile thinks it's "functional and comfortable."
