The all-new, beautifully practical Audi A5 Sportback: form and function in perfect harmony
The all-new Audi A5 Sportback is style, sophistication and elegance – and four-door practicality. One of the most desirable family cars around; one of the most practical sports cars you can buy. It is the perfect blend of everyday functionality and lustful desirability. Bringing together dramatic shapes and taut surfaces, the familiar, yet completely contemporary, silhouette of the new four-door coupé retains the original’s unmistakable road presence, while enjoying a sharper, more athletic edge. Not to mention, there’s more space, quality and technology – on the inside and under the bonnet.
The stretched wheelbase, short overhangs and long, wraparound bonnet, featuring a power dome, emphasise the dynamism of this five-door coupé, yet the new A5 Sportback has also grown significantly inside. The interior is longer and wider, while the 480-litre boot is among the best in class. With the rear-seat backs splitting 40:20:40 as standard, there is excellent functionality, and all folded down, there is an outstanding 1,300 litres of load space as well. Practicality aside, the sophisticated materials, refined colour schemes and outstanding build integrity of the new A5 Sportback’s cabin are all typical of Audi – as is the technology on board.
The body of the new Audi A5 Sportback is the lightest in the segment, and the wide track and comparatively long wheelbase combine to provide excellent foundations for composed, agile handling. The optional adaptive dampers integrated into the dynamic handling system of the standard Audi drive select make for a driving experience that is both dynamic and comfortable. New electromechanical power steering provides better feedback and steering precision. Performance and efficiency combine to incredible effect in the new A5 Sportback, with up to 47.8mpg combined and a 0-62mph time of 6 seconds from the 252PS 2.0 TFSI. For added agility, the Audi S5 Sportback offers 354PS and 500Nm of torque.

- Two petrol and three diesel engines, producing between 190PS and 286PS
