The seats are comfortable both in the front and back, making it a great 4 seater coupe. There is a lot storage space within the boot, making it a practical family car too.

Looks

The 19inch alloys give the car a more intimidating look, but gives the Audi RS5 plenty of style too. Unlike the Audi RS6, the car’s design makes it look like a powerful car. It does however strike an excellent balance between looking elegant yet sporty.

The rear double exhaust system on either side along with the subtle yet stylish spoiler gives it a striking and attractive look.
