Audi A5 and S5 Coupe (2016-present): dimensions and boot space

Everything you need to know about the dimensions - including width, length, height and boot size - of the Audi A5 and S5 Coupe models

The Audi A5 Coupe is a stylish and comfortable two-door that has plenty of appeal as an everyday car that also has a dash of practicality and a good mix of performance and economy. There’s also the S5 Coupe, which is the same body style but has a more powerful engine and suspension tuned for sharper handling around corners.

There are also A5 and S5 Sportback (streamlined five-door hatchback) and Cabriolet (convertible) models, plus an RS5 that offers even more performance than the S5 model. The A5 range was updated in 2020 with a new look, but the mechanical parts underneath the skin remained pretty much the same as the 2016-2020 version.

If you want a smart-looking car that’s comfortable and easy to drive and also has decent economy for daily driving, the A5 is a good option. Rivals include the BMW 4 Series, Mercedes C-Class Coupe and Lexus RC.

The Audi A5 and S5 are pretty typical, and these rivals aren’t too different in terms of size and space. Read on for more details about the dimensions and boot space to find out if it’s the right car for you.

Audi A5 and S5 Coupe dimensions

The A5 Coupe is 4.7m long, 1.8m wide and 1.4m tall, so it’s slightly smaller than a BMW 4 Series and Mercedes C-Class Coupe - but it’s a matter of millimetres, so there’s not much in it and all are a similar size. It’s quite wide, though, so tight car parks can be tricky. The S5 is slightly longer because of the sportier bumpers that jut out more.

There’s not as much space in the rear seats of the A5 as in the 4 Series or C-Class Coupe, yet because the roofline is slightly higher, there’s actually more headroom in the Audi. There’s plenty of space in the front for passengers and any bits and bobs you need to store while travelling.

Audi A5 and S5 Coupe boot space

The A5 Coupe has a decently large 450-litre boot, though this reduces to 410 litres in the S5 model. This means the A5 has about the same amount of space as its rivals - the BMW 4 Series has 440 litres, which is so close as to make no real-world difference.

Both versions have a small boot door so loading isn’t the easiest with big items, but the actual space within is plenty for a weekend away or even a family holiday. When it comes to boot access, the A5 Sportback - which has a large hatchback boot opening - enables you to load large items more easily, so is also worth considering if practicality is high on your list of priorities.

Audi A5 and S5 Coupe towing capacity

The Audi A5 isn’t likely to be seen towing big trailers or caravans, but it’s still useful to know you can pull up to 2,000kg in the A5 and 2,100kg in the S5 model. The lesser petrol versions of the A5 can pull a reasonable 1,700kg as a braked trailer.

Four-wheel-drive is fitted to many models in the range - especially the more powerful versions, including the S5 and RS5 - and could be useful for pulling a trailer if you’re one of the rare owners who considers towing with the A5.

Audi A5 and S5 Coupe weight

To assess the weight of a car in the real world you can look at the kerb weight figure, which includes all the fluids in the engine, a tank of fuel and (in most cases) a 75kg driver.

The A5 and S5 Coupe is available with a range of engines and two- or four-wheel-drive setups, which means that there can be significant variations in weight based on the model you pick.

The four-wheel-drive models are the heaviest, and the bigger 'V6' diesel models are heavier still. Weight is a bad thing - the lighter a car is, the better its fuel economy, plus the more agile around corners it will be and the better its performance.
