A5 Coupe Real World MPG

I'm currently driving a B8 A4 2.0 TDi Saloon 170PS and because I don't need a 5 door at the moment I'm looking at swapping to an A5 coupe. My budget can stretch to £30k but just not sure which engine...

S5
I'd love an S5 but I do around 12,000 miles a year and although I'm happy to pay the fuel bill it just seems a waste to use it for commuting to work, unless I consider a second £500 Nissan Micra for that job. I've heard real life mpg is around 20-25 mpg.

2.0TFSI 225PS
At first this was an interesting proposition, a best of both worlds solution to my problem. A bit of speed with a bit of economy. But they seem to be rare and don't have a huge amount more power than the 2.0TDi 177PS. Audi quote 42mpg but I'm guessing it might end up nearer 30-35 mpg.

2.0TDi 177PS
This is the safest option but then also the most boring! Audi quote 53mpg but I'm guessing real world would be 45-50mpg.

I'd be interested to hear what your real world MPG figures are.

No 3.0TDi choice?

240ps Quattro and I return around 34-36 mpg on around 18000 miles per year, 70/30 motorway.
I could get probably that up to 42 if I wanted to but prefer to drive more enjoyably. Plus thats stage 1 remapped so around 270-290bhp.

And I love it, so much better to drive than my 2.0TDi 170bhp is. It just doesn't feel like a diesel.

I'm getting roughly 28mpg in my 1.8 TFSI which seems really low (I don't exactly rag it everywhere)

Each to their own but I'm not a huge fan of performance diesels. I had a B7 3.0TDi and found it pretty boring. Yes there's a shed load of torque and it was quick, but it was a heavy lump that felt more of a cruiser.

Back To decent Mpg ...
I had a S4 2012 , Same Engine as S5 2012 , got around 28mpg on long steady runs and 18mpg around town.... The V6T (Supercharged) is a great engine and highly tuneable for Rs4 & 5 beating performance

My 2.0tdi 177 A5 coupe manual gets 47mpg easy enough and only £30 road tax. Gets 55mpg on a steady A road in heavy traffic stuck at 50pmh....wondering how much of a hit I'm going to see on this when I get my 2.0 tdi Quattro S-Stronic next week!

3.0tdi, 306hp/525lbft torque and 35-42mpg round doors and about 42-50mpg on motorways. Standard S5s are amusingly surprised

No its a Dec 2014 Black Edition (not plus) so pretty current. Currently 5.5K on the clock and averaged 40.9 to date.
Can get up to 45mpg on a run and we shall see whilst going up to Audi Stoke today!.

After almost a year and 25000miles I've averaged about 22mpg on my RS5. I'm not sure if I am proud or ashamed!
