The complete package
After taking delivery of my new A5 Sportback a month ago I must say I am amazed at how really good this car is - especially compared to my outgoing 2015 Mercedes C250 AMG line.
I got the A5 45 Sportback TSFI Quattro. Options that came with it were S-line interior & exterior (20" wheels, Nappa leather, flat bottom steering wheel, chrome pedals etc), sunroof, upgraded sound system, assistance pack (adaptive cruise and active lane keeping, auto park, 360 degree camera view and additional ultrasonic sensors), black gloss exterior finishing, and he...ated seats. The car drives so smoothly and glides over the rubbish Central Queensland roads like no other car I've been in. My car has acoustic glass which makes for a super quiet drive which is great as there is less noise to disturb the brilliant Bang and Olufsen 19 speaker sound system. Car has so much Tech it is mind blowing - it has wireless phone charging and can sync to two separate phones at once. It also has in-built internet function which allows you to do stuff like have Google Earth satellite imagery on the Satnav maps. The car is nice and quick and has a nice meaty sound to it - even has launch control which oddly the more expensive sports models don't have and they don't have a dual clutch transmission either. Also the car has a "secret" storage compartment that is quite big just under the light switch (it looks like a fuse box holder).
Purchased in April 2019 at Audi Gold Coast for $87,000.00.
This is a great car.
Driving is particularly good, especially stable.

Loads of innovative updates, minimalist interior
Reviewing this vehicle after updating from the outgoing A5 Sportback. The first impression was simply surprised, at how much tech this model has over the outgoing Sportback (and how clever it was to hide all of it with a minimalist interior). The new virtual cockpit (a digital speedometer) works so well; with a number of different displays to choose from. If you are looking to order this vehicle; make sure to purchase it with the matrix headlights - It lights up the WHOLE road for you at night while making sure it does not dazzle other drivers ...or pedestrians. Overall build quality is typical of Audi; however be prepared to pay a premium if you wish to get a number of things that were once 'standard' on an S-Line: It does not come with a cigarette lighter anymore (it's extra), and the leather-bound door arm rests are a whole separate option on this vehicle (it was standard on an S-Line beforehand). The driving performance is astonishing. The Audi Drive Select is quite responsive. Put the vehicle in dynamic, and not only does it accelerate at really good speed; the sound of the engine is also accentuated. The Nappa leather seating is a little more plush than the old model. The old model's Nappa-leather was quite hard compared to this one. If you're considering this vehicle, it is well worth taking a look (or even going for a test-drive). You won't be disappointed.
