Audi A5 Overview

Derived from the A4 sedan, the A5 coupe and convertible have quiet, luxurious cabins with room for four. Although the rear seat is snug, it's still one of the best in any convertible. The car drives well, with agile handling and a taut, compliant suspension. The standard 2.0-liter, turbo four-cylinder delivers ample power but sounds raspy; the eight-speed automatic is supersmooth. The convertible has a shudder-free body structure and is almost devoid of wind buffeting, and you can operate the soft top at low speeds. The S5 uses the supercharged V6 and seven-speed automated manual, and the RS 5 is a delight to drive with its 450-hp V8.
