    Audi S5 review: Audi S5 - Roadshow

    Quattro all-wheel drive and other performance gear lend to fun sport driving. The Bad The power steering feels overboosted even in its most aggressive setting. Connected features lack social networking or music apps. The Bottom Line The Audi S5 demonstrates an excellent array of tech both in the cabin and under the hood, making it one of the most enjoyable all-around driving cars available. Available with adaptive suspension, an active differential for its Quattro all-wheel-drive system, a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, and a supercharged engine boasting horsepower, the Audi S5 sounds like it should be a road-devouring beast.

    However, Audi's little coupe tends more toward agile weekend sport driver than track day superstar. The S5 is an all-around excellent driver, comfortable in gridlocked traffic, and exciting on a twisty back road.

    Cabin tech and driver assistance systems are both innovative and useful, the kinds of features that you miss when driving a lesser car. From its launch I loved the design of the S5. The model keeps the same sleek, compact coupe body, with minor changes to headlights and grille. Lest you think a coupe is too impractical, the S5's rear seats fold down, making a clear cargo area straight through to the trunk.

    Angular LED running lights bracketing the headlights give the S5 a unique expression. Google Earth, while you drive Once inside the S5, the Google map-based navigation system captured my attention.

    Although using a smaller LCD than in the A7, where I first saw this feature, it was still completely engaging to see a satellite image of the road on which I was currently driving. Audi highlights the roads on the imagery so as to distinguish them from the photographic cacophony of buildings and landscape; traffic flow and incident icons are shown as well.

    These satellite maps come to the car through a live 3G connection. While driving around areas with no data service, I noticed that the maps lost some detail, but never entirely faded out. The car also comes with a complete set of standard navigation maps. Using Audi's MMI controller on the console, I could enter addresses or look up points of interest, but using the dial to pick letters from a rotary interface was tedious.

    Audi has not added the kind of touch pad it has in the A7 and the upcoming A3 to the S5 as yet. However, I was impressed with the voice command system, which let me say an address as a complete string, which the car proved very adept at understanding.

    As for points of interest, much better than the built-in database is Audi's Online Destinations feature. The MMI controller works with this feature as well, but voice command is much more convenient. Using it, I had merely to say the name of a local business or park, and the car returned a list of local destinations from Google. After finding the correct one, I could feed it directly into the car's navigation system for route guidance. I found the S5's route guidance slightly lacking.

    Although it showed turn-by-turn directions on the instrument cluster display and its voice prompts said the names of streets on which I was to turn, the system's graphics were not as robust as in other cars.
