What Car? says...
Like Google Glass and the Facebook Phone, the folding metal roof is one of those inventions that generated a lot of excitement, only for people to realise that it actually made little sense.
For starters, all the moving metal panels and their motors tended to leave you with a car that weighed more than the Moon, compromising efficiency and driving fun. Plus, when you were enjoying the sun there was no room for your luggage because the boot was full of roof.
So, how does the Audi A5 Cabriolet compare with those and other convertibles? Over the next few pages, this review will answer that question, telling you what it's like to drive, how swanky it is inside, how practical it is and how painful or otherwise the running costs of different versions are.
