The Audi A5 Sportback starts at $43,575, which is $3,225 more than the price of a comparably equipped Audi A4. But you do get a power liftgate, more cargo space, a panoramic sunroof, and an exterior that’s much more interesting to look at. The Sportback’s starting price is in lock step with that of the BMW 430i Gran Coupe, but if you want xDrive all-wheel drive you’ll have to pay $1,620 more than the Audi. The S5 Sportback starts at $55,375, or $3,880 more than the 440i xDrive Gran Coupe, which makes less power at 320 hp and 330 lb-ft.
