Luxury two-door ride

Performance, luxury, and lots of options are the name of the game with the 2015 Audi A5. This head-turner is available in a classic coupe or convertible body style with many option packages to create the ride of your dreams. This four-seater is perfect for business folks hoping to impress clients, singles looking to mingle, and couples who admire fine vehicle craftsmanship. New for 2015, all-wheel drive, xenon headlights, and LED running lights are standard on all A5 models — in previous models, these features were only available through packages.

5 reasons to buy the 2015 Audi A5

1. Two body choices 

You can choose from a cute little coupe or an open-air cabriolet (convertible) with a soft top when shopping for the 2015 Audi A5. A turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder gas engine pumping out 220 hp powers them both. The coupe features a six-speed manual transmission if you love to work through the gears as you accelerate, or an optional eight-speed automatic transmission to keep driving easy and breezy. Cabriolet drivers enjoy an eight-speed automatic transmission. 

2. Three trims defined 

In previous years, the Audi A5 base model offered the layering of various options packages. For 2015, three trims now encapsulate these options. As you hunt for the ideal 2015 Audi A5, explore the features of the Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige trims. Of course, there are still options to refine your ride. For example, the Premium trim is eligible for the Navigation package and the Premium Plus can gain the Technology package. New for 2015 are the Sport Plus package (which layers atop the Sport package on the Premium Plus and Prestige trims), and the S Line Competition package for coupe models only (layers atop the Sport package). 

3. Top-notch interior 

When shopping for an Audi you probably won't expect anything less than the ultimate in comfort. The 2015 Audi A5 base Premium trim treats you to cozy front seats (with optional sport seats featuring extra bolsters and fine-tuning adjustments), a tilt-only sunroof on the coupe, leather upholstery, Bluetooth® connectivity, a 6.5-inch display screen, and a 10-speaker sound system that supports CDs, iPods, and satellite radio.

If you choose the cabriolet in the Premium Plus or Prestige trim, and spend hours behind the wheel, look for a Comfort package updated ride that features ventilated front seats with lumbar support and a neck-level heating system (convertible only). 

4. Modern tech equipped 

When eyeing a 2015 Audi A5, you might assume it would lack the conveniences of modern connectivity. Not so. On the top-end Prestige trim featuring the Technology package, you'll enjoy Bluetooth® integration, available mobile Wi-Fi, HD radio, a seven-inch display screen, a Bang & Olufsen® sound system, DVD player, a rearview camera, and front/rear parking sensors.

Yes, the 2015 Audi A5 is that loaded. 

5. Great road handling 

When you get out on an open highway, you'll see what the 2015 Audi A5 can really do. Thanks to the standard all-wheel drive, a turbocharged engine, and traction control, you'll have no trouble in the passing lane or merging into traffic. If you do lots of weekend getaway road trips, you'll appreciate the precision handling of the 2015 Audi A5.
