2014 Audi A5 Black Edition 2.0 TDi from UK and Ireland
Stunning sports coupe
Center console display froze, fixed itself.
A/C not as effective as it used to be, going to get it re-gassed soon.
Engine management light came on, needed new EGR valve.
I bought used with dealer history, and the car has had every service with me and I look after it well.
Had my A5 Coupe for a couple of years now and loved every minute. The car is just a joy to drive, be in, and look at.
Metallic black paintwork with 19 inch rotor arm alloy wheels, this car stands out. Front wheel drive version, not AWD or "quattro" as Audi like to say. Benefits of FWD are better fuel economy - my 2.0 TDi gets a genuine 50 mpg + and still has great performance and handles very well.
Interior is black leather and looks fantastic. Very comfortable. "Black Edition" is well equipped, but all these cars are well equipped with modern electronics. And if I have any gripes it is with the modern electronic quirks - maybe I am getting old, but I really dislike the electronic handbrake (would much prefer a mechanical lever) and although you can connect your phone and all the usual stuff in this car, I just do not care about the modern digital features. To me a car just needs electric windows, comfortable seats, a good climate control system, a quality stereo system, and be good to drive. That is it, and the A5 does all that very well. Hard to believe my car is 8 years old now.
Minor points aside I have little to criticize this car about, it is a genuinely good modern coupe that is well worth the asking price, just be aware it is an Audi and they are known for getting expensive when things go wrong, so be careful buying used if you are considering one yourself, always go for a looked after car with full history.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
