Which A5 is the Best?

The 2020 A5 buyer who wants a Sportback is going to be a different person to the one seeking a coupe or cabriolet. In any event, a version in Premium Plus trim might be a great starting point, which could then enable a choice of options if the budget wouldn't stretch to Prestige.Find an Audi A5 for sale
