2009 Audi S5: Seats Haven't Deteriorated a Bit

January 19, 2010

Not that 15,000 miles of hard use is enough to make a set of expensive seats crumble, but come on, these seats look brand new. More importantly, they feel brand new.

I noted this mostly because the seats are one of the many things that make this car feel special every time you drive it. It's the most noticeable touch point a driver has apart from the steering wheel yet far too many luxury cars don't get it right.

I took a friend home over the weekend and the first thing he said after getting in was, "Wow, these seats are awesome."

Are they the best seats I've ever sat in? No, but they're close and that's what you would expect in a car of this caliber.
