2013 Audi A5 Summary


The Audi A5 is a rarity as an all-wheel-drive four-seat coupe or convertible. Its 2.0-liter turbo engine is strong, its 8-speed transmission impeccable, and ride and handling flawless for the mission. The A5 is not inexpensive, but it's still less than Mercedes or BMW. The S5 ups the game and is hard to beat in its class, with a satisfying supercharged V6 engine and available 7-speed twin clutch transmission, with big brakes and firmer suspension. For those who must have a beefy V8, there's the RS5, now with 450 horsepower. Nothing feels like the RS5.

Sam Moses filed this report to NewCarTestDrive.com after his test drive of A5 and S5 models in the Pacific Northwest and Colorado, with additional reporting by G.R. Whale in Southern California.
