Default Edmunds Full Test: 2008 Audi S5



What Works:
Warm, expressive new look; tractable V8 engine; better balanced handling; carefully crafted network of convenience, performance and safety features.

What Needs Work:
Too aggressive brake action; four-wheel-drive-style drivetrain windup.

Bottom Line:
Beautiful, luxurious and desirable, this fast highway car takes Audi to the top step of excellence.

No, apparently that's not it.
