The 2016 Audi S5 Coupe and Cabriolet have cohesive designs and styling details that really set them apart from key rivals such as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 335i and M3, and Porsche Boxster and Cayman, among other sporty luxury coupes.
The Infiniti Q60 Coupe and Convertible are close in performance, yet they fall far short on traditional luxury measures like ride, noise, and general refinement.
The Porsche Boxster and Cayman are true sports car, without rear seats, although their driving experience is more vivid than that of the S5.
On the other hand, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class goes the other way—in more of a luxurious grand-touring direction that makes it the high-class pick for road trips.
The BMW 4-Series—even the high-performance M4—lands in the middle; it's a nicely balanced, comfortable, and tech-loaded coupe or convertible.
