Even though the Audi A5 is nearing the end of its production cycle, it still offers enough performance and style to be one of the better entries in this class, especially if you consider the S5 and RS 5 models.
Both are shaping up to be strong rivals for the A5.
The BMW 4-Series now offers a similar variety of options, thanks to the recent addition of the convertible and M4 models.
The Infiniti Q60 comes in both coupe and convertible forms, but it's not as powerful as the performance variants of the Audi.
There's also the new Cadillac ATS Coupe, which makes for a compelling but unabashedly American take on the small luxury coupe; and in ATS-V guise it's aimed directly at the RS 5 and M4.
