Car has it all
By mbanyc on
2011 Audi A5 2.0T Premium quattro 2dr Coupe AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)
Well first of all, it's drop-dead gorgeous. Amazing Deep Sea Blue paint, although I personally think the curves show up better with the lighter colors. Seats are comfortable, but still could us more lateral support. 8 speed auto with the 2.0T is super-smooth, and sneaky fast, (although it's no M3-beater). But so what! It's a hoot to drive, comfortable without being cushy, and it gets a few more mpg than the 3.2 I'd been driving. Was concerned about a going to a 4 cylinder, but this engine is really special. A major improvement over the '08 2.0T that I didn't even consider. Can't wait to get it on a twisty back road!
That hot body. Much-improved MMI / navigation system. B&O sound system is tremendous. Backup camera with sensors that tell you when you're getting too close to something.
The front and back LEDs are a little bling-y for me. The front LEDs go out on one side when the turn signal is activated. What's that about? Wish they could figure out a way to make the sunroof removable or slide. Can't turn in the side mirrors remotely anymore? Seems like a silly oversight. All pet-peeves that will not take away from the joy of driving this car.
