Audi A5 Overview

The A5 coupe and convertible have quiet, luxurious cabins with room for four. Although the rear seat is snug, it's one of the best in any convertible. The car drives well, with agile handling and a taut, yet compliant suspension. The standard 2.0-liter, turbo four-cylinder delivers ample power but sounds raspy; the eight-speed automatic is super-smooth. The convertible has a shudder-free body structure and is almost devoid of wind buffeting, and the well-insulated soft top can be operated while driving at low speeds. The S5 uses the supercharged V6 and seven-speed automated manual. The high performance RS 5 boasts a 450-hp, 4.2-liter V8 and is a delight to drive.
