Audi continues to upgrade and refine the S5, offering more efficiency underhood, and more technology inside. There’s little we miss about the old V8 and much we love about the new(ish) V6, even if its 3.0T badge is a misnomer.

The S5 really does stand on its own. Many buyers will lean towards the Audi purely for the all-wheel drive; some will fall for the styling; but likely none will be disappointed.

The Audi S5 won’t ever feel like a 3 series, but when you stab the gas it does allow enough tail wagging fun to satisfy most drivers while maintaining epic grip and something of a safety factor.
