2015 Audi S5 Coupe/Cabriolet Preview


Pros: Everything you love about the A5 -- design, Quattro, driveability -- pumped up a few notches for optimum performance.

Cons: If there has to be one, I suppose it would be that there are only two doors, making rear seat access a little difficult at times.
