The Car Everyone Wants - Literally
By trakkarclay on
2011 Audi A5 2.0T Premium quattro 2dr Coupe AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
Has to be one of the most spirited 4-cylinder cars on the road. It prefers to drive fast with lots of torque to bring in the turbocharger. However, when driving residential it is a bit sluggish off the line. It feels like it starts in 3rd to save gas. If you have the Sport package, you can put it in tiptronic mode and shift the gears, which gives it more pick up.
The Italian sidelines and the 19" Y-spoke wheels. The nav, the satellite radio on the B&O speakers. At least once a week, a woman tells me the A5 is her favorite car. That never happened with my Infiniti I35. The steering is so tight, it's like a bicycle. I can drive my A5 around a manhole cover
No door frames over the windows lead to a bit more wind noise than I would like. The doors are not set to open the ideal amounts. Mileage is a bit lower than I would expect for a 4-cylinder car. Should have a seat memory for this upper-mid configuration.
