Audi S5 Coupé: Nice, fast and expensive

The new Audi S5 Coupé is (k) a typical representative of its category. A purebred sports coupe with the characteristics of a sedan. Just as popular.

It's the old dilemma: a coupé actually offers less car and costs significantly more than a sedan. So also the Audi S5 Coupé. Why coupes are so popular despite their disadvantages? Market research knows exactly: Coupés are automobiles that exude more elegance. They are the exclusive outfit for individualists.

The new Audi A4 allroad quattro is too beautiful for rough terrain

Hand on heart, SUV, crossover and off-road vehicle drivers: how often do we drive with our all-wheel drive vehicles beyond the pasture fences? And yet off-road mobility suitable for off-road use is in demand like never before. The idea that you could, if you wanted, has become a must-have for every manufacturer in the otherwise good model portfolio. And that's not because our roads are in (supposedly) bad condition, but because we want to keep the breath of adventure as an illusion, at least on four wheels.

On the road in the BMW 435i Cabrio: headroom to the sun is an issue, especially in winter

Who thinks of driving a convertible in wintry temperatures? Lots! Because if you ask experienced car sellers, most convertibles are not ordered in spring or summer, but during the cold season. The longing for those 150.000 million kilometers of headroom to the sun is most pronounced when it shines the shortest.

When we set off in late summer in the BMW 435i Cabrio, snow and black ice were just vague terms, not a realistic risk. The air smelled of meadow freshness and old woman sun.
