2010 Audi S5 vs. Its Competition

2010 Audi S5 Cabriolet
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

The 2010 Audi S5 / Cabriolet have true rivals within Germany itself.

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe used to be the CLK-Class coupe and cabriolet; this time around, it's more controversially styled but has excellent ride and acceleration with a V-8 option.

The BMW 335i Convertible offers a folding hardtop roof and twin-turbo power just a few steps behind that of BMW's M3 convertible.

And though it's not a four-seat convertible, the Porsche Boxster speedster deserves a mention here as most of these convertibles aren't used as four-seaters very often.
