TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Audi S5 Coupe and S5 Cabriolet are among the best-looking (and best-performing) luxury coupes on the market. The 2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers elegant comfort and luxury in several flavors, with a thrifty diesel and a high-performance V-8 for those at either end of the spectrum.
