For such big car, the Audi A5 gets along handily with just two liters of displacement. Our test car came with the Prestige Package, driver assistance and the active damping suspension.

This and the A7 are two of the best looking cars on the road.

I didn't get to drive one of these, but I did drive a S3 recently.  I was impressed.  It had been a long time since i had driven an Audi, and although I don't think it would be a great track car, as a daily it would be hard to beat.  They've come a long way since my old 100LS.

I see a ton of these in central NJ.

As an aside, these are one of the last generic German luxury coupes you can get with a manual transmission, although it's only available with the base 2.0T engine.

We drove an A3 quattro - which is admittedly at least $10,000 cheaper than this car - and really weren't impressed.  It drove well enough I guess, (the 330i xDrive was much more engaging), but it just wasn't a very pleasant place to be.  Especially considering the price.
