That's a good looking car. I like the rear, very aggressive.

To be honest the A5 does look like awesome. I like the direction Audi is going with the large front grill... it makes it look more assertive and less poise. As for the back... the lights remind of a mix between the toyota Camry and a hint of the 3er sedan (the way the lights curve up within the trunk lid.

The design works for this Audi IMO.

Yeah I love the new A5, looks aggresive and smooth at the same time, the lines flow really well. I see what you mean about the rear lights but remember Audi used similar lights on the A4 ?

I can say I like the looks but wouldn't like the price. Also, doesn't the Tiburon have the same look to the fenders?

Yep ... lots of Hyundai inspiration in there

They must like their sales numbers.

Outside of the RS4; don't really like much of their cars. They all look like soccer mom cars, grand pa's egg style ride (A6) or daddy's big boat the A8.

As for this one; it's acceptable ... but I'll take the E92 over it in a flash and i'm sure that most people will as well. BMW saw it coming & that's why the have the E92 328xi & 335xi ... that little bit of bla bla Audi had left about AWD (Quattro) ... well it's gone.

P.S.: When I look at that pic above, with no badges for a sec ... I tought it was a Hyundai Sonata coupe.

Hmm maybe you dont like the new A5, but what do you all think of the new Audi S5 ?

"Audi has revealed its 2008 S5 coupe, which will be on display at the Geneva Motor Show alongside the new A5 coupe. Although final specs have not yet been disclosed, the S5 is widely expected to get the same 4.2-liter V8 as the S4, delivering 340 horsepower and 302 pound feet of torque.

Like all Audi "S" models, the S5 has sportier suspension, unique front and rear fascias, performance wheels and brakes, carbon fiber interior elements, and the choice of a six-speed manual or DSG gearbox."
