Editor’s note: The seven-speed automatic transmission equipped 2013 audi S5 coupe and the six-speed manual S5 we tested a few months back had different climates and weights to deal with. We were +100 lbs (small cameraman) with the manual model, but we had summer tires and warmer weather. The automatic version has mud & snow tires and was tested in a cooler climate.
This is what The Fast Lane Car calls, “Real world testing.” When you own a vehicle, you tend to accumulate extra ballast from personal items placed inside (up to 100 lbs in everything from kid’s seats to safety equipment and even trash) and drivers often have passengers and gas in the tank. The point is: the extra ballast and imperfect road conditions are what a high percentage of drivers deal with in the real world.
That’s where we get the term and that’s why we do this type of testing.
