2018 Audi RS5 Coupe Is No Fun To Drive, Says This Review

The first and most important thing one needs to know about Audi’s all-new RS5 Coupe is that it’s mind-blowing fast.

Secondly, it’s one of the most aggressive-looking cars on sale today, with large air intakes, sharp lines, and massive wheels, so the head-turning factor is there.

However, it’s not all perfect, as it’s apparently not as involving to drive as its two main rivals, the Mercedes-AMG C63 and the BMW M4. CarBuyer says that its steering feels light and numb, and this ruins the overall joy of taking it out on a twisty mountain road, making it comparable to a grand tourer rather than a proper sports car.

On the road, the 2018 RS5 Coupe is quiet, refined, and comfortable. There’s no sense of drama, apart from the brutal acceleration, and if this doesn’t bother you at all, then perhaps the more affordable S5 should suit your taste better.

It’s just as well equipped, it has the same sports seats at the front, and it’s also powered by a V6 engine. You’ll also save some €20,000 ($23,055) in Europe by going for the S5 – and that’s a significant amount.
