The biggest change to the 2011 Audi A5 is the availability of a new 8-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission. It replaces the previous 6-speed Tiptronic, and Audi claims the new compact gearbox is smoother and returns improved fuel economy. Also, Audi has dropped the 3.2-liter FSI V6 from the A5 lineup, leaving only the 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder to power the cars.
Styling and design; beautiful, well-appointed interior; performance in the S5 model; ride comfort; all-weather "quattro" traction; fuel-efficiency in the 2.0 model
With both coupe and Cabriolet models, the Audi A5 and S5 hit the target on design and styling, and both the A5 and S5 are quite possibly the two of the best-looking touring cars inside and out. Interior comfort and ride quality are top notch, with the coupe making an especially good long-distance cruiser for two. Audi says that the A5 and S5 Cabriolet models have best-in-class trunk space.
