Our Fleet Test Drive: Audi A5 Sportback - 5th Report

P11D price: £29,310
Key rival: BMW 3 Series

Who doesn't love a sporty coupe?

But if you want to showboat with more than two people or carry major cargo, its lack of practicality really lets it down, with poor rear access to pokey seats and a normally average-to-rubbish rear boot space. Which is why I'd choose an A5 Sportback over an A5 Coupe any day of the week. The addition of two extra doors and a massive rear hatchback doesn't spoil the A5's looks at all and you get much better access to five seats and excellent rear boot space - 480-980 litres for the Sportback vs. 455-829 for the Coupe. Amazing.
