Audi A5 3.0 TDI: Reviewed!

We found another interesting review of a diesel-powered Audi model, the Audi A5 3.0 TDI.
My time in the A5 was challenged with ice, snow, and heavy flood-like rain. Highway speeds were kept at an even 55 miles per hour and the A5 was exceptional in the four inches of slush. Quattro kicked in and kept me steady on my hour-long commute home. Audi is a comfort name for me. Every Audi is so easy to slip into. Data screens are where they should be, knobs do just what they are supposed to do, and to put it quite nicely—it just works and works well.

I only had to deal with a combination of mist and rain during my night in the A5. I absolutely love the TDI engine and six-speed. Power comes on nice and low, but it races to redline. This engine is perfect for this car and those fuel economy numbers look amazing.

The best part of this car is the interior.
