Turn Heads — I get more compliments on this car than anything else I have ever owned. It is a very fun car to own and drive. The all wheel drive takes corners like no other car I have ever driven and I have driven a lot of cars.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Love the way the car looks and drives

Cons: Honestly for me there aren't any...I love this car

Amazing — Best car I've ever had. I want the S5 next. Drives really well, and handles well on corners. Not the cheapest of cars, but worth it. Very fun to drive, makes driving a pleasure. Definitely buy this car, its a must.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Apperance

Audi A5 —

Performance is very good. 2.0 litre turbocharged engine produces 208 bhp and over 250 lb/ft of torque. Acceleration is ok reaching 62mph (100km/h) in 6.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 150mph. The 245/40 tires and hard suspension means its good when the road gets twisty and the brakes allow you to stop on a penny. Being german it is very well built. After 12000 miles it has developed no rattles or squeeks and despite the hard suspension is very comfy and civilised inside. Audi do seem to have gotthe styling right with the A5 the 18" wheels come standard and the sharp aggressive lines makes the car stand out. The inside of the car looks very tidy, minimallist if a bit dull. The one in the picture has a light interior, with light grey seats, star silver roof lining, light ash inlays and 2 tone grey dash. This car is surprisingly cheap to run with a combined cycle figure of 42.8mpg means trips to the pupm are few and far between. Matenance costs are minimal seeing as the first three years are under garuntee and the cars mechanical parts are all made to a very high standard. Unfortunately the A5 is not so fun to drive. Even flat out you can barely hear the engine and going quickly is like being in a video game its like you not actually there. But overall the the A5 gives a good looking and practical alternative to your every day saloon. shame it costs so much. The one in the picture £33,000

Pros: Engine, Build quality, looks

Cons: Price

Audi A5 — Since it is 1.8L the 178 bhp are not enought. This car must 3.0 L but in Cyprus the price is double due to high taxation. Exterior S-line package with a lower suspension is not recommended for countries with bad quality streets, but on the other hand , it feels good to drive in motorways

Pros: Beautiful car

Cons: Underpower

A Complete 2+2 Coupé — A very complete four-seat coupé, even if the rear space is a tad tight. The performance is excellent for the V6—there’s no need to go for the S5 unless you must have an V8. It’s a totally different character, even when equipped with the S-Line package: it is civilized where the S5 is hairy. There’s little understeer with the Quattro system and the steering and handling are excellent. The grille is very purposeful and the car’s stance is lovely though for some it might be an acquired taste around the C-pillar, which harks back less to Audis and more to Opel Commodores and Ford Taunuses. Unrivalled for the most part.

Pros: Performance, interior comfort, looks from certain angles, handling, grip

Cons: Rear space makes it only a 2+2

The Most Fun I've Ever Had In Any Car I've Owned. — I've owned BMW's, Volvo's, Land Rovers,VW's...This is my first Audi and won't be my last. This car is amazing! The handling, the power, the looks, the tech goodies...it has it all! The mere attention you get with this car is so cool - Guys on the highway are rolling down there windows next to me to give me compliments!

Pros: Everything!

Cons: Small Gas Tank 15 Gallons, leads to about 320 miles to a tank.

Bit Of A Flash Bloke;s Car, But Can't Fault It. It's Awesome. — I got rid of this mainly because folk kept crashing into it. Best car I ever had for functionality. Didn't really like the seats, was jealous of s-line seats. I had 3.2 manual, was plenty swift. Car somehow managed not to have any character at all. There were no quirks or frivolity, apart from the LED running light thing, which was both frivolous and quirky, but not something I ever really experienced as a driver. and now all new cars seem to do it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: it's great.

Cons: there aren't any really.

Perfection, Thy Name Is Audi. By jjp395

There's nothing like a 6 cylinder--I don't care what Audi does to its 2.0T's, the power just can't compare to the 3.2 trim. This car, even being 5 years old, still turns heads when it drives by. With ... Read More

Convertible With Character By omnibiz
