2013 Audi S5 Convertible Prestige quattro 2dr Convertible AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 7AM)


Review

very attractive convertible , canvas top goes down an out of the way in one motion. no need to push levers or snaps, just the button to lower the top which can be done while moving. For safety has hidden roll bars which pop up if the car is headed over. Also quattro drive which makes rain driving safer. Wind screen makes top down driving very much like driving with a huge sun roof. one problem back seat is not useable with the screen deployed. Another caution, the front valance is just a few inches off the ground so easily scraped if you get to the curb.

A lot to offer but with a couple of compromises

2013 Audi S5 Convertible Premium Plus quattro 2dr Convertible AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 7AM)


Review

I've owned my 2013 for almost one year.
What's not to like:

1.
AWD
2.
All season QUIET convertible rag top
3.
Google Maps

But there are compromises.
The connectivity in the car requires a paid T-Mobile subscription.
And even with that you only receive limited, general information.
You won't receive personal data from the internet of any kind.
And seriously, who needs a hotspot in a car these days since most everyone is carrying their smart phones?
In an age where a Chrysler has a full touch screen with data shared through a phone Audi falls way short in the tech department.



Worst Features

Pull the data away from a T Mobile subcription(which provides substandard rural coverage in the U.S. anyway) and pair it to a smartphone of my choice. Second is the engine. This really is not "V8 power" with 6 cyl gas mileage. Its more like a little faster V6 power that behaves mostly like a V6.
