Audi Santa Barbara celebrates the most recent accolade presented to the Audi A5 for exceptional cost of ownership results for 2015.


Audi is once again the leading recipient of a Kelley Blue Book award for 2015. Each year, Kelley Blue Book honors new vehicles and brands with the lowest projected ownership costs with the 5-Year Cost to Own Awards. The awards take into account vehicle ownership costs of the first five years including factors such as fuel costs and depreciation values and ranks models within each class and category accordingly.

Determining the Best Value

Other costs considered in the report include insurance fees, maintenance and repair costs, and state fees and taxes. This information is gathered and presented as part of Kelly Blue Book’s commitment to providing helpful information for consumers to consider when preparing to make a car purchase. The cost of ownership report breaks down ownership details and identifies brands and models with the lowest overall projected costs.

A5 Pulls Ahead of the Competition

This year, the Audi A5 was named as the winner of the 2015 Kelley Blue Book 5-Year Cost to Own Award in the “Luxury Car” category. This category includes competitors such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, and Lexus. Audi representatives credit quality engineering, efficiency, and powerful performance as top reasons the Audi A5 comes with a low cost of ownership and is so popular with drivers. For example, the A5 Coupe achieves 22mpg city/ 31 highway and the A5 Cabriolet achieves 20mpg in the city and 28mpg on the highway, allowing drivers to spend less time at the fuel center and more time on the road.

In addition to low ownership costs, the Audi A5 provides exceptional driving performance and safety. The current 2015 A5 features a 2.0 TFSI® turbocharged four-cylinder engine with available Tiptronic® automatic transmission. This ferocious engine delivers 220hp and 258lb-ft of torque so drivers can enjoy powerful performance and handling. The design features sophisticated technology such as standard Xenon headlights, dynamic range adjustment, LED taillights, and S line exterior design available on the A5 Premium and A5 Premium Plus model packages. The model line includes the A5, S5 Coupe, and S5 Cabriolet models.

Audi offer a complete line of luxury sedan models including the Audi A4, Audi A5, and the Audi A6. To learn more about technology and efficiency updates from Audi, drivers can follow press releases and updates online with Santa Barbara Auto Group.
