Seven years after the birth of the Audi A5 Sportback, the new version now makes its appearance. The five-door coupé blends elegant, emotional design with high functionality and abundant interior comfort. The family-friendly car is perfectly connected and offers the latest infotainment features. Plus, the second generation comes with a completely reengineered suspension, high-performance drives and innovative driver assistance systems. The S5 takes to the road with a new six-cylinder turbo engine developing a mighty 354 hp and 500 Nm (368.8 lb-ft). In a new departure, the A5 Sportback is also available as a bivalent g-tron, which customers can run on either Audi e-gas, natural gas or gasoline.
4,733 millimeters (186.3 in) in length, a 2,824 millimeter (111.2 in) wheelbase, 1,843 millimeters (72.6 mm) wide and 1,386 millimeters (54.6 in) high – the new Audi A5 Sportback displays sporty, balanced proportions. Audi’s designers have combined dramatic shapes and athletically taut surfaces in the design of the five-door coupé. The stretched wheelbase, the short overhangs and the long, wraparound front lid with power dome emphasize the model’s dynamism.
Another distinguishing feature of the new A5 Sportback is the sporty front end. The three-dimensionally modeled Singleframe grille is significantly flatter and wider than on the previous model. Depending on specification, the radiator grille comes in subtle black matt. On the sport trim line its basic color is twilight gray matt with horizontal slats in aluminum silver matt. In the design trim line it is in elegant dark titanium black with horizontal slats in chrome. The side air intakes have bold edges and optionally – with the S line exterior package – honeycomb grilles and a sporty, horizontal trim strip in aluminum silver matt extending across the entire front end.
