Not a marketing exercise but an awesome machine.
It’s a seductive car, the new A5 Cabriolet, and while more dynamically accomplished than its predecessor, still more of a grand touring boulevardier rather than a B-road hustler. But what an ownership proposition.
Technically and mechanically other city cars outstrip it, but emotionally – well, that’s up to you. We understand.
Superb design and refinement cloak a nondescript driving experience. Again.
A cute, fine little convertible. Although the emphasis is on the little: the boot is tiny and the interior packaging is odd.
At a stretch, we can see a point to the 4WD versions, but really though, this is an unnecessary diversion. And not a very pretty one, either.
