2009 Audi S5: Wide Open In One Press
December 16, 2009
Hit the remote trunk release on the key fob of most of the cars in our long-term fleet, and the lid simply unlatches. If you're lucky, it pops up an inch so you can give it a grab to open up all the way.
Not so in our longterm 2009 Audi S5, and in a good way -- when you hit the S5's remote trunk release on the key fob, the lid rises fully up with no manual intervention required.
It's a nice little touch, especially when your hands are already full. And unlike the similarly wide-opening trunk of our uber-lux BMW 750i, closing the Audi's decklid is light and easy.
