2019 Audi A5

2019 A5 Photos
The 2019 Audi A5 is one of three vehicles: a sleek two-door coupe, a sharp five-door hatchback that's more like a wagon, or a beautiful convertible. It offers a compliant and comfortable ride, balanced handling, and a strong engine with a nice exhaust note.

Redesigned in 2018, the A5 gets no significant changes for 2019.

The coupe and convertible technically seat four, but not easily. The Sportback can accommodate five people, having a wheelbase that's 2.4 inches longer, all of which goes to rear legroom.

The A5 is built on the chassis and running gear of the A4 sedan and Q5 crossover. All-wheel drive is standard on all models. Coupes get a system which cuts power to the rear wheels when it isn't needed, which improves fuel mileage.

The only engine in the A5 is a 2.0-liter turbo-4 making 248 horsepower, mated to a sharp 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Every A5 has Audi's Drive Select system, with modes to stiffen or soften handling and/or engine and transmission response.

All models of the A5 are EPA-rated at 23 mpg city, 34 highway, and 27 combined, on premium fuel.

The NHTSA gives the A5 a five-star overall safety rating, with four stars for frontal crash safety; and the IIHSA gives the A5 its top 'Good'? scores in every crash test, although it hasn't yet conducted the new passenger-side small-overlap crash test. It gave the A5's standard front crash-prevention system a 'Superior'? rating, noting that the automatic emergency braking prevented contact at 12 mph, and slowed the car from 47 mph in the 25-mph crash test.

However, the A5's standard headlights only rated 'Marginal.'? .
