No, they're very different engines. Large NA vs small turbo. They'll behave very differently. The 2.0 petrol can be fast if tuned, but from factory generally just sits in the "quick" camp.

If you’re buying a car for speed I wouldn’t get an audi a5. You get alot of luxury with an A5 but that comes at the cost of weight... most A5’s weighing 2 tonne or more is going to slow you down. But with the right maps/tyres ect it can pull

Don't know why folks are differentiating between "fast" vs "quick", when it's a pure measurement....
My 3 Saabs all went from 0-60 mph in 7.0 seconds, so my '18 A5, at 5.7 seconds, is delightfully fast, to me.
The fact that I get 27 mpg in the city, and 35 mpg highway, with just enough low-rider-smokin' speed, is just icing on the cake.

Then, thinking back on my 600cc Yamaha motorcycle, 0-60 in 3.4 s and 50 mpg.... ;)

Imagine your Saabs felt quicker all that torque steer.

It's a bit of an open ended question really. What feels fast to someone might feel slow to someone else.
It depends what you're used to and what you're moving from. When I bought my A4 2.0tfsi that was mapped it felt ridiculously fast to me and that was moving up from a 170bhp 2.3 5 cylinder golf which also felt fast when I first bought it. The 2.0 tfsi is not slow by any means, especially with a remap.

Hehe fast is always a relative term. I love motorbikes and they are VERY fast cos the power to weight ratio works in their favour. My MT10 has a detuned R1 engine with 160 horse and the bike weighs about 180kgs dry, 230 wet. Acceleration is truly shit off a shovel. You cannot compare with a car cos a Ferrari would need 1500 horses ish to have similar off the mark sprinting.

I just moved from a 2013 S5 with stage 2 tunes to the ecu and transmission and full AWE exhaust. I was putting out about 450hp and could hit 0-60 in 4.0 sec. THAT was fast and quick! :p
I now have a 2018 A5. Definitely NOT fast or quick... to me. But I don't care that much. I'll put a stage 1 tune on it and that'll make it much better as far as speed is concerned.

If you do get one. Get the dynamic mode unlocked thru obd, the car will feel more responsive and sporty. Stage 2 tune as well.
