Product Overview

Audi A5 Cabriolet (chassis code F5) facelift is a compact executive convertible in production from 2019. It is available with a range of inline-4 and V6 engines that displaced 2.0 to 3.0 liters.
Just like the pre-facelift, the facelifted F5 A5 cabriolet looks ok with the top down but horrible with it up. Unfortunately, the manual transmission has been deleted, leaving the FWD-based car with its poor nose-heavy handling characteristics and no fun to have.
Audi has made a good effort in aerodynamics, with a decent 0.26 coefficient of drag to show for it.

External Reviews


Reviewer score 68% (normalized by Neofiliac)
Reviewers from autoexpress have found:
The A5 is a similar width and height to the outgoing car, but it's around 50mm longer. This primarily means more legroom for rear-seat passengers and a deeper boot. Lowering the roof requires nothing more than a touch of a button. It takes nearly a second and half longer to stow than the Mercedes C-Class Coupe's, at 19.9 seconds. The Audi is available with a £600 wind break, but the manually set up unit is fiddly to install.
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Fully adjustable roof
  • Good standard equipment
  • More expensive than the C-Class
  • Fiddly to install
