2015 Audi A5

Pros: Impressive interior materials; refined, well-designed convertible body style; agile, composed handling

Cons: Cramped, difficult-to-access rear seat is best suited for children; slight turbo lag; some complicated controls

CG Says: The Audi A5 sees no significant changes for 2015, though its standard-equipment list grows to include three-zone climate control, xenon lighting, and LED taillights. The A5 is basically a 2-door luxury car with a sporty edge. Though its turbocharged 4-cylinder engine isn’t the fastest mill out there, it still can provide an invigorating driving experience. A5 won’t give the Porsche Boxster or Cayman a run for their money, but it’s still a luxurious and dynamically capable car. If you’re shopping the BMW 2-Series, Cadillac ATS coupe, or the Infiniti Q60 Coupe or Q60 Convertible, put the A5 on your list.
