The Audi S5 handsome, luxurious, and packed with a ton of technology. And yes, it’s still good to drive. The V8 is gone in favor of a forced-induction V6, and you can’t get the manual transmission anymore, but the S5 moves down the road with confidence and poise, and plenty of available power. If anything, the modern S5 represents a car that’s matured – less of a sports car, and more a grand tourer. There are so many pros: 1)Turbo for the win. Lament the death of the S5’s supercharged V6 all you want, the truth is, this turbo engine is way better. It makes 354 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, meaning it’ll sprint to 60 miles per hour in 4.4 seconds – just like its four-door S4 brother. There’s a huge wave of power that starts below 1,500 rpm and stays strong well up to higher revs, and when you aren’t driving spiritedly, the engine can actually pull off some efficient fuel economy readings – as high as 30 miles per gallon on the highway.. 2) Tech superstar. I probably sound like a broken record at this point, but seriously, Virtual Cockpit is the coolest bit of infotainment tech happening right now. It turns an otherwise ordinary gauge cluster into something really special. Plus, like the S4, the S5 gets a special “sport” display, with a huge speedometer and tachometer in the center, and customizable info on either side. 3)Comfy and quiet. Every time I get into a new Audi, I’m impressed with the interior. The S5’s approach to luxury is through simplicity and modern design, with plush sport seats (you don’t have to get them in bright red, like these). Leather, Alcantara, and aluminum all look and feel upscale here. You’ll feel more special inside the S5 than you will in a comparable BMW 4 Series. But, despite all these advantages I still purchased a completely different car Mercedes gle coupe 2018. Yeah, it's quite expensive but thank's to https://www.wacarremovals.com.au/ I sold my Audi a6 and got it very easily.

I have recently sold my old A5 and just purchased an old V8 S4 Avant, and I am totally enjoying myself. Luckily I do need to use the S4 as I am starting to learn all about it, that engine is a wonderful experience and the sound is simply mmmmm.

And ps I have recently discovered that high miles are not a major problem, as long as the car has been looked after.
