2010 Audi S5 Review

More about the 2010 Audi S5
More About This Model

Among the big three German luxury carmakers, Audi has always been the artist of the group. The A5, R8 and TT all possess styling (both inside and out) that make us wonder if the German company employs descendents of Rodin. We doubt we'll find any argument when we say the 2010 Audi S5 Cabriolet (convertible) is the most attractive car in its class (which includes the BMW 335i, Infiniti G37 and Lexus IS 350.)

But unlike some of the artsy types you may have known in school, the S5 isn't at all uncomfortable when it comes to athletic pursuits. As car buffs know, the "S" version of a given Audi model denotes the high-performance variant. And as such, blessed with plenty of power and a keen sense of balance, the S5 has the moves to match its dashing good looks.

In a more practical sense, the 2010 Audi S5 Cabriolet makes for a great road trip companion. The S5 cabrio is fast, competent on a curvy road, very comfortable on a long interstate cruise and fairly quiet, even when you're enjoying open-air motoring with the soft top down and the windows up.

However, we expect cars in this premium segment to offer all those qualities. Which model you choose will depend largely on what type of driver you are. If you prefer a more engaging character, consider the 3 Series and/or the G37. If you're not the sort who has car magazines scattered around the house, yet still appreciates brisk performance along with a bit more isolation from the outside world, then there is the IS 350. Neatly splitting the difference is the S5.

The S5, however, starts at around $59,000, which is about $7 grand more than a 335i convertible and about twice that more than the G37 or IS 350. Those willing to pay the steeper price of admission will get a car that, even in this prestigious crowd, manages to have a measure of distinction. The Audi S5 is for those who appreciate not only fine engineering but a fine example of art as well, whether it's sitting on an easel or on a set of high-performance tires.

Should I lease or buy a 2010 Audi S5?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
