2017 Audi S5 Walk Around

The six-year-old design works well, with its classic and classy coupe proportions that are sculpted and flowing. The chunky C-pillars are handsome. The available accent trim with blacked-out details and Black Optic 21-inch wheels looks hot.

Interior

Both the Coupe and Convertible are very comfortable in the front. The seats are firm, and supportive, and wide enough for big people. However rear visibility for the driver is poor in the Coupe, on account of the wide C-pillars that make the roofline classic. You can solve this problem by buying a convertible and keeping the top down. The soft top is well insulated when it’s up.

Comfort is sorely compromised in the rear. The seat cushions are too short and flat, a common problem in coupes. To look on the bright side, at least there are seats. And they fold flat.

The cabin finish and materials live and breathe quality, sportiness, and performance. The switchgear can feel excessive and cluttered. There’s a locking glove box and console, and one-liter bottle holders in the doors.

Audi’s MMI infotainment interface is one of the best in its responsiveness, thanks partly to its clear menu. Audi Connect is an optional system with WiFi connectivity for up to eight devices plus Google Earth mapping.

The supercharged engine sounds great from the cabin.
