Standard on every 2019 Audi A5 Safety Sense, which really is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.

On the following rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and an automobile alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.

You can consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a variety of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a larger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.

Most of the features on the upper trim levels can be put into the lower trim levels as options. Other notable options include a sunroof, a JBL speakers coupled with a built-in navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.

As sedans go, the 2019 Audi A5 stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the rear seat is easy to fold down to fit longer items. You can find enough cabin storage options to make most people happy. Loading a vehicle seat is straightforward, too.

Small-item storage


Cabin storage is good but not stellar. The forward center console bin is perfect for concealing items but includes a hard, slippery floor, so that they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is really a decent size, and you can find modest door pockets in the front and rear that are great for small water bottles only.

Cargo space


The 2019 Audi A5 has a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles ensure it is easy to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.

Child safety seat accommodation


It’s quite simple to mount a vehicle seat, with obvious and readily available lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s room enough so that the front seat do not need to be scooted completely forward.
