2011 Audi S5 Cabriolet 3.0T

Even though the S5 is the sportier version of the A5, it's still more of a luxury car than a sports car, and in convertible form, it's even more of cruiser. The inherent body flex that comes with removing the roof is apparent, although it doesn't detract from this car's overall feeling of quality and attention to detail. The cabin is comfortable and modern, and it's always a pleasure to use Audi's MMI system, which is still more intuitive than BMW's iDrive and looks better than Mercedes-Benz's COMAND system. I do wish, though, that Audi would also put a volume control on the dash in addition to the one located near the main MMI controller. It may seem redundant -- especially with the steering wheel mounted volume controls -- but I still find myself searching for a knob on the dash to turn down the stereo volume.
