2009 Audi S5: HDTV compatible

August 10, 2009

Audi S5 fold down seats.jpg

I found out this weekend that our long-term has fold-down seats. This gorgeous sport-coupe can be somewhat practical, but probably won't be useful for your next home remodeling job.

I was going to show some photos of a 42-inch plasma TV in the back, but it's not on sale right now.
So instead, I have photos of...

... a box. As long as the object you load isn't too tall, you can probably fit it in here.
(Is a big-sceen TV the benchmark of cargo capacity that most men [and some women] have in the their heads?)

The drawings from the Audi media site show the trunk to be about 39" wide by 42" deep, with the seats up. Audi lists the EPA luggage capacity as 12.0 cubic ft. There's also a trunk pass-through if you have skis or 2x4s.

So you have the means, but are worried about carrying a few things?
You may be able to make do with the sexy S5/A5 as your sole vehicle.
