Superlatives really ought to be reserved for the best things in life, and having just returned from a thrilling drive in the 2014 Audi S5, I’m ready to hurl every single one I can think of at this utterly brilliant automobile. There’s only one significant thing wrong with this car, and that’s rear seat space and access. What the S5 really needs is four doors to make my life easier when hauling kids around.
What’s that? Audi makes such a vehicle? It’s called the S4? And I drove one earlier this year?
Oh. Right. How could I forget? Maybe because what I really want is an Audi S4 Avant. Now that would be flippin’ phenomenal. Instead, because Americans are so in love with the idea of driving an SUV, Audi gives us the SQ5. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
In any case, if you’re looking to read a review that helps you to justify buying a BMW 435i with the M Sport Line package because it saves a few grand compared to the Audi S5, you’ll need to hit the back button, return to your web browser, and try again, because this ain’t it.
