Interesting review here of the Audi S5 Sportback. Have a read!
Fast, secure, but never really exhilarating. We love the engine, which mixes a meaty V6 howl to masses of mid-range punch, and with the slick-shifting seven-speed S-tronic gearbox (a manual isn’t available on the S5 Sportback) it feels very nearly as quick as an M3. Although we also know from living with an S4 Avant that this engine won’t ever return anything close to its on-paper mpg promise.
