2018 Audi A5 Sportback Review

Audi has long been known for manufacturing cars that skillfully blend high power, safety, and style. In the past, A5 Sportback models have met and exceeded these expectations. However, how does the 2018 model hold up?

In this review, the Pecheles Audi team takes a closer look at the 2018 Audi A5 Sportback to determine just what it has to offer Greenville, New Bern, and Raleigh drivers.

Audi A5 Sportback Performance Specs

When choosing the right midsize sedan, there are two main qualities that often jump to our minds: power and efficiency. The 2018 Audi A5 Sportback somehow manages to blend both.

Though it may come equipped with a four-cylinder engine, the A5 Sportback still manages to generate more horsepower than some V6 powertrains. Thanks to turbocharged fuel stratified injection (TFSI®), this sedan can produce 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque.

Nevertheless, turbocharging is known to greatly cut down on fuel consumption, too. It's for this reason that the A5 Sportback can still maintain 34 MPG highway and 24 MPG city.1

2018 Audi A5 Sportback: Safety

One key component to staying safe in your vehicle is handling. Fortunately, the A5 Sportback comes loaded with handling features, starting with Electronic Stability Control With Traction Control, and Secondary Collision Brake Assist. Pair these features with the Quattro® all-wheel drive, and maneuverability is amped up.

In addition to its handling features, the Audi A5 Sportback also features a smart safety tech suite. Audi pre sense® basic and city comes standard in the model. Using sensors and cameras, these features can monitor the road around your vehicle and act autonomously to prevent collisions.

However, in the event that an accident does occur, you'll still have a dependable airbag system backing you up. This system includes driver-adaptive front bags and Sideguard® head curtains. So, you'll have plenty of cushion if you do end up in a crash.

Interior Comforts

The more technical aspects of the Audi A5 Sportback are all well and good, but you're going to want just as many creature comforts in your vehicle. Fortunately, this sedan has plenty of those.

As you settle into your eight-way powered leather seat, you'll have plenty of stellar amenities right at your fingertips. On those hot days, three-zone automatic climate control will keep things cool, while the panoramic sunroof will let the breeze on those more temperate days.

You'll also have tons of different technology to utilize, starting with the seven-inch MMI® center infotainment display and 10-speaker Audi audio system. Connect your mobile devices using either the USB or auxiliary jack, or connect an SD card in one of two slots. You'll be able to take tons of music and apps on the go.
