This is an absolutely fabulous car! Traded in my 07 Mercedes Benz 55 AMG. Wanted a vehicle that was great on gas, looks, and one that would provide excellent quality. I was not disappointed. Of course its not a 500 HP Mercedes AMG that offer every feature under the sun, but however it gets the job done! Comparing those two vehicle is like comparing apples and oranges so I am not going to bother. People often talk about power but this car at nearly 300 HP give or take 30 HP is good enough for me and probably for most. I have previously owned BMW, Mercedes, Mustang, and Cadillac and I can honestly say that Audi is just good if not better. For those wanted more horse power, you might want to consider a S5, an RS5 or some form of muscle car. I don't need to HP, because I been there and done that. I needed a reiable car with excellent gas mileage and good valve for my money. I believed that with this Audi that I have achieved both.
Great Car! It looks, feels, and rides like a total luxury vehicle should. Saved about $10,000 buying it used but be advised that when it comes to German vehicles you want maintenance technicians who are professionally and specifically trained to work on your Audi to work on your car.
This vehicle has met my expectations and more. As you can imagine, it's a head turner(the a5 has made numerous lists of most stylish cars in the last 10 years), but the gas mileage has been a great surprise. 25+ in stop and go and up to 35 on the highway. Amazing. This is a high class luxury car that at the same time is practical?? Impossible?! Leave it to the germans to make this reality. - Handles well- - Smooth ride - steering stiffens at speed. - Huge trunk - Luxury interior -- I have premium/tech/nav packages. - plenty of room in backseat.. - Great sound system. Only negative is I wish the sunroof opened. Highly recommended.
