Interiors – The interior feels well-built and well put together which is typically Audi. The speedometer now comes with a Virtual Cockpit that looks quite cool. The central 7.0-inch colour MMI display isn’t a touch unit and sadly doesn’t fold away in this car. The central console is very smartly laid out with chrome buttons and bezels. The A5 gets an LED interior package, pedals and footrest in stainless steel and a power-operated tailgate. The seats offer good amount of comfort in the front but don’t offer the same at the rear, where the seats end up lacking lumbar and under-thigh support. Headroom and legroom are actually quite decent for a coupe design and would only be uncomfortable for anyone above 6’3″ in height, however, the interior does feel cramped at the rear.
The cabin feels luxurious with top quality materials all around
Storage spaces are quite decent with it getting additional storage in both the front and rear armrests, but the rear door cubby spaces are quite narrow and won’t be able to store even a small sized water bottle. The boot space in this car is actually quite decent with the boot lacking in height but not in depth. It gets tethering nets and anchor points to help keep your luggage in place. I really like the high multi-function 3-spoke leather steering wheel design.
The interior of the S5 has aluminium-finished trims and illuminated door sill trims with the S logo in them but sadly the same seats as the A5 (Sports seats are an optional extra). The layout of the cabin is very similar to that of the A5 save for some minor changes here and there. However, our test car also had some Alcantara bits which increased the oomph factor. Also, the S5 gets a tweaked instrument cluster in the Virtual Cockpit. The design of the interior isn’t very flashy but looks modern and premium nonetheless.
