The high performance Audi S5 is not the ultimate performance version of the Audi A5 range (that accolade belongs to the Audi RS5 which is the subject of a separate review) but it still offers scorching performance but with more real-world fuel bills and insurance costs. All three Audi S5 models are powered by a supercharged 3.

Buying used

The best S5 models are likely to be at Audi dealers as it's a fairly niche car. The convertible is perhaps more desirable than the coupe, but this wasn't introduced until June 2009 - two years after the hard roofed model was launched. Be aware that the drop top is only available with the S tronic automatic gearbox and there's no manual.

Any S5 model will always create plenty of interest. It may not have as much badge kudos as a Mercedes AMG or a BMW M3, but it's understated looks will appeal to those who want performance without the show.
