Proving once and for all that it hates freedom, Audi has begun selling a 44 MPG (US) version of the A5 in Europe, but not here. The Audi A5 2.0 TDI makes 170 HP and 258 lb-ft at just 1,750 RPM. Mated with a standard six-speed manual, that means it can hit 60 MPH in just 8.3 seconds, too. A classy coupe that’s almost as efficient as a Prius and comes with a manual? I say we invade.
