The new 2011 Audi S5 is a leader in the sports-car market with a pleasing balance of luxury and performance. Available as either a coupe or a convertible, this performance-tuned vehicle has great features that add to its attractive style.

The Audi S5 comes with a 354-hp V8 engine with a six-speed automatic transmission available. It can hit 65 miles per hour in under 5 seconds. The 2011 Audi S5 will get from zero to sixty in an impressive 4.9 seconds – competitive with other cars that are more costly. The all-wheel traction of the Audi S5 makes for an excellent driving experience, even in the cabriolet, where you might expect to experience some shaking or body roll. The S5 was designed to handle all types of roads and driving conditions, so it performs well for the driver on highways and streets alike. The transmission is capable and quick, leaving little lag time as the car accelerates.

The Audi S5′s elegant body design is unchanged for 2011. New LED headlights and taillights plus daytime running lights were added, as well as a new wide grille with the Audi logo distinctively in the middle. Heated rearview mirrors and windshield washer nozzles prevent fogging in order to maximize a driver’s visibility on the road. The S5′s attractive and high-quality cabin is one of its strong points, with many functions through an innovative Audi Multi-Media control knob mounted on either the dashboard or the center console. The front sport seats are excellent for both enthusiastic driving and long-distance cruising.
