2009 Audi S5: Beautiful Design -- And I Can Still See Out of It

January 26, 2010

2009_audi_s5_a-pillar.jpg Clearly, I don't spend enough of my time in our long-term 2009 Audi S5 coupe. I like the way this car sounds, I like the way it feels and I like -- and have always liked -- its understated design inside and out.

And perhaps what is most remarkable about the A5/S5 design is that this coupe looks beautiful, yet I can still see out the back, over the hood and around the A-pillar. That's quite the deal, especially right now when highly stylized retro designs and pedestrian protection requirements are conspiring to turn coupes into land-based submarines.
