Audi A5 Cabriolet 2.0 TFSI quattro 2017 review

Does it represent good value for the price? What features does it come with?

The second step in the Cabriolet range (there’s a less powerful 2.0 TFSI FWD and a turbo[1] V6 S5 version), the 2.0 TFSI quattro is likely to be the biggest seller, although Audi concedes there won’t be a stampede if history is anything to go by. For £95,000 you get 18-inch alloys, three-zone climate control, Audi’s excellent 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit digital dashboard, 8.3-inch MMI screen with 10-speaker stereo, leather trim, heated front seats with electric adjustment, keyless entry and start, reversing camera[2], front and rear parking sensors, sat nav[3], auto LED headlights, auto wipers, neck warmers (no, really), cruise control, a comprehensive safety package and a space-saver spare wheel.

The Audi A5 comes with the 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit digital dashboard. (image credit: Peter Anderson) Our car had the Assistance Package, too. For £2470, the factory will add adaptive cruise[4] with stop-start[5] (it’s semi-autonomous, driving you in traffic with a bit of prompting and your steering effort), active lane-keeping and turn assist (stops you turning into oncoming traffic).

We also had the Qi charging mat for compatible phones (hello iPhone 8 and iPhone X owners, and a few Android phones) and a tasty set of 18-inch alloys for £550.
