The A5 is about as sexy as cars get these days. It's not ostentatious in the least, but the Audi's smooth lines hold onlookers' gazes nonetheless. The interior ambiance is just as fabulous.
Like Joe D, I was also very impressed by the amount of shove provided by the 3.2-liter V-6. Just because it's the base engine clearly doesn't mean that you'll be shackled to the slow lane. To me, the action of the stick shift is ever so slightly clunky when it slides into gear, but I'm very glad that Audi offers a manual in this car. It's still a very smooth car to drive and one of the best grand touring cars on the market.
