Audi A5 review - sharply-styled coupe is a big upgrade from old model - Page 7: Design
Correctly specced, the A5 is a decent package for keen drivers and a genuine rival to the BMW 4-series
Unmistakably Audi, the A5’s design is very similar to the outgoing model. That’s no bad thing, as it retains a stylish, sleek silhouette, but owners of the previous-generation model may have been hoping for more of an upgrade.
The A5’s ‘face’ is more chiselled than before, and the sharp-edged Audi grille sits well on the front, flanked by aggressive-looking headlights and foglight surrounds. Sharp-edged lines running down the flanks of the car make it look wide and low – helped by the long wheelbase and low, sloping roofline.
