Yes indeed, we agree :). Audi A5 is one of the best coupe in the world. Is well made, and the exterior design is extraordinary. Not to mention the daylight running lights !
Moreover, this is the second consecutive year that Audi has earned the top design award from one of North America’s leading automotive publications. The Audi R8 sports car won the Magazine’s Design of the Year and Car of the Year awards for 2008.
Editors praised the restraint, elegance and the “perfect execution” of the Audi coupe’s design. Seeing the overall design quality of the A5 on the road cinched the decision for Automobile’s editors. “Audi,” the magazine noted, “has indeed created a beautiful car.”
“The first point of appreciation comes upon approaching the car,” said Automobile Magazine Design Editor Robert Cumberford. “The second comes when the door is opened to one of the best interiors offered today, in any car at any price. The A5’s elegance, stability, and sheer visual presence make it a clear winner.”
“The graceful, yet precisely drawn, lines of the A5 epitomize the way a progressive coupe should look,” said Johan de Nysschen, Audi of America’s executive vice president. “All of its elements – powerful surfaces, a front end that speaks to pure performance, lighting that blends style with function among many other features – unite Audi style and dynamic performance.”
