2013 S5 Coupe: Ridelust Review

Outstanding build quality, performance, supermodel ….

Big sticker price, doesn#8217;t as fast as it actually is, a bit tight for drivers.

FINAL THOUGHTS: A sports coupe that has no taking on the worlds best.

If reading this then probably wondering if the 2013 S5 Coupe S tronic is worth the price tag that comes on the I just spent the better of a week with this and I can tell you that after 500 miles on some of Northern best roads, that the is just not as simple as YES or No. This is a performance coupe.

It produces numbers, is all-weather capable and has of the best styling in the business. does that justify whopper of a price tag?

The first thing you notice the S5 is of course, the styling. Handsome and at the same time, the S5 projects an of success. There are no bulging scoops or rear mounted trying to project that car is a bruiser to the general public. there is simply a beautiful that sings to the common-folk time you push down on the

Speaking of throttle, let#8217;s engine.

Equipped with a supercharged V6, the S5 will get to 60 miles per in under 5-seconds and onto a top of 155 mph. Power is rated at 333 lb.ft. of torque and is transferred to all wheels through a slick S tronic transmission that can be manually via paddles, or left in mode if you#8217;re not feeling

What#8217;s amazing about the performance is that this is no automobile. In fact with a weight of over 3,800 some would consider the S5 to be a bit of a Audi, thanks to some engineering, has done a remarkable job of the cars weight.

Side to transitions are seamless and thanks to the invisible Quattro all-wheel system, traction is never an I pushed the S5 relatively hard some very tight roads and never once did it get out of Quite the opposite actually as the I pushed the S5, the more composed it to be.

As a driver you have the option of between a host of different ranging from Comfort to mode. These either or stiffen up the suspension depending on the terrain is like and can be adjusted a small dial that just below the center That same dial controls the S5#8242;s center display screen giving you to everything from climate and controls to the cars interior and settings.

It takes a moment, but is actually one of the intuitive units I#8217;ve as of late.

Everything about the S5 quality and confidence, very aspects when you#8217;re to sell a performance based The interior is fitted with top materials that include a of carbon fiber, leather and and they#8217;re put together in such a way no synergy is lost throughout the The seats are high-back, fully leather buckets that great support with settings and lumbar support.

the S5 seats four, but unless less than 5-feet I wouldn#8217;t even attempt to get there. One thing that folks should note is the of headroom in the S5. I#8217;m 6#8217;4#8243; and with the seat fully I still only had about an of clearance to the roof.

Thankfully though it wasn#8217;t and I was able to find a comfortable thanks in part to the manually and telescoping flat-bottomed steering

Time and time again I this car to be a very deceiving Not in a bad way mind you, but in such a way triple digits come up rapidly. Now normally I would mind this, however the S5 a sense of speed is rarely to the driver unless you#8217;re down at the speedometer.

The other is that this car just feel fast, even it goes like stink you push it.

It#8217;s got some amazing insulation, a smooth as silk transmission, and when the booming and Olufsen sound system is hell, you might as well write yourself a ticket and go to ….

This is a good a really good car. got an interior that#8217;s one the best in any of automobile, and engine that hard, true all-weather and supermodel good looks. it#8217;s expensive and that#8217;s my one with this machine.

Now if you were to price it out, a model S5 would set you back $51,000, a price that is 100% acceptable for this However if you go that route you things like the Prestige . a $6,600 option that you everything from that Bang and Olufsen stereo to navigation. You#8217;d then have to ditch the $3,250 Assist Package that you adaptive cruise control, select controls and Audi#8217;s steering.

Then to top it off, you need to the $1,250 Fine Nappa interior.

My advice, DO IT. Meaning all the comfy and foofy stuff and get car in a base model because at $55k, you#8217;ll be getting a car not only elegant and stylish, but one offers you wonderful performance and manners, for thousands less its rivals.

Or#8230; you can tell me to go to get all the options and still have a German sports coupe. The is yours.
