Hey everyone! I got my wife a 22 A5 Cabriolet and she loves it. I was considering getting a Sportback as my car and trading my Accord Hybrid. Her A5 is quick. Much quicker than my Accord. So my question is whether there is a huge difference between the 40 and 45. Right now 40s are easier to get with the features I want than a 45. Would the 40 still have a good amount of power or does it feel sluggish compared to 45?

Racks what a star!!! The main difference is the torque of course so the 45 will be more fun to drive and allow you to change gear less ofter. Otherwise very similar indeed.

Thanks for the replies! So there is not A HUGE difference in the way it drives between the two? If not then even though the power is less...it seems like the 40 is the better bargain.
