The Audi S5 convertible offers open-top style that's hard to match (although I like the looks of the slinky A5/S5 coupe even better), and the car's performance is very good but not great. For instance, body flex is apparent, although not bad for a four-passenger droptop; and the steering is very good at highway speed but feels distant at slower speeds. I found the S5 to be much more family friendly than the Mercedes-Benz E350 cabrio. Unlike in the Benz, the power top's operation has lots of clearance over our Britax car seat secured in back.
