Between the mundane, A series cars and the eye-watering fast R series cars of the Audi sit the S series cars that offer the balance of performance and practicality in a small, subtle yet powerful package. The Audi S5 follows suit in that regard with sweeping lines that is enough to tell you it has performance but subtle enough to slip under the radar. On a quick glance, you would mistake it for an Audi A4 but the side profile reveals the gliding roofline that tells you that this means the business. The grill, slightly wider dimensions tell you that it packs a punch.
At its heart, it houses a 3L super charged V6 engine that produces 328bhp and 44.87kgm of torque. The power delivery is instant because of the super charger that compliments the engine and it is further complimented by the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox that offers slick shifts both ways and paddle shifters are also in place to put the power down more aggressively. When driven in the eco model, it offers decent economy and in sport offers performance.
The S5 offers good boot space and decent knee and head room for passengers behind with comfortably cushioned seats but it is best for two. The dashboard is very well built and finished with nice touches. The looks, space and the engine of the Audi S5 proves to be a great dual-personality car that offers the best of both worlds. Adaptive suspension is not an option on this car but the suspension is supple and stiff enough to offer a good balance of everyday commuting and occasional thrashing that is characteristic of this car. Overall the S5 lives up to the expectations of being a subtle everyday sports car that is enjoyable.
