The second Audi in our run-down mixes the compact executive appeal of the A4 saloon with the sleek lines and added practicality of a sporty hatchback - and this unique combination has made the A5 a big hit with new and used car buyers alike.
Miserly depreciation is joined by low running costs if you opt for the 2.0-litre TDIe model, which has been specially tuned for optimal fuel economy. The result is fuel consumption of 64.2mpg and low CO2 emissions of 136g/km. If you want a cheap car to own, small fuel and tax bills are sure to appeal, but the A5 Sportback also delivers decent pace, a hugely desirable interior and decent driving dynamics. Add its head-turning looks into the equation and the Audi looks like a compact executive bargain.
Even company car drivers get to benefit, as the low CO2 emissions result in a competitive 17 per cent Benefit-in-Kind rating, so this Audi is cheap to run even if your name won’t be the one in the logbook.
