If you're in the market for a premium-badged coupe but still need a degree of practicality, then the Audi A5 Sportback is well worth a look. It's better than ever, and while space in the back is limited for taller adults, the extra doors are a boon. Available in coupé body, the RS5 features a 4.2 FSI engine rated at 450 PS (331 kW; 444 hp) at 8250 rpm and 430 N?m (317.15 lb?ft) at 4000-6000 rpm, coupled with a seven-speed S-Tronic transmission and Quattro permanent all-wheel-drive with crown-gear center differential and electronic torque vectoring. It has 19 inch alloy wheels in an exclusive five arm structure design with 275/35 tires (optional 19 inch winter wheels), 365 mm (14.37 in) diameter ventilated aluminum front brake discs (optional 380 mm (14.96 in) diameter carbon ceramic front brake discs), aluminum 8 piston brake calipers with RS logos in high-gloss black, electronic stabilization program with integrated sport mode, speed dependent servotronic steering, Audi drive select with three (4 with MMI navigation system) modes of operation (comfort, auto, and dynamic, optional custom), and optional dynamic steering.

Really a fabulous and stylish car.
The back seat is comfortable for two adults and the boot is long, so although not as deep, there is still room for shopping bags and medium sized luggage. The large tailgate raises the convenience factor many notches. The interior is “Audi-sober” with a high-quality feel and good ergonomics. One day, I was browsing the Leasebusters website, and found what seemed to be an extraordinary deal to assume the last 2 years of a 3 year lease on an Audi R8 V10 for $2050.91 per month (all figures in CAD). The incumbent lessor had put down $70k upfront in order to reduce the payment to that amount, and was looking to recoup $25k from the person taking over the lease. Therefore, my total cash outlay over 2 years was $2050.91/month x 24 months = $49k (monthly lease) + $25k (upfront) = $74k paid. However, the vehicle purchase option at the end of the lease term was $86,532.75. And the market value of a 3-year-old R8 V10 at that point was more like $160k (the original purchase price was $192,295). Therefore, I could buy the car out and flip it at the end of the lease term and net $160k - $86k = $74k received.
