Audi A5 Sportback Review

Audi A5 Sportback
Audi is filling every niche and come April 2009 we’ll see the new A5 Sportback. This coupe-cum-hatchback will be stunning, sitting on the A4 Avant’s wheelbase but as low and as wide as an A5 coupe. Expect a super-sleek roofline, frameless side windows and a big sloping tailgate. Plus active-aero that will also appear on the new RS5 with an automatically extending tailgate air deflector.

‘With the Avant and the Sportback, we can attack the 3-series Touring and the C-class estate from two sides,’ says a well-placed engineer from Ingolstadt. ‘For Audi, this should mean about 50 percent more combined volume, 25 percent higher conquest rates and a 15 percent increase in market share in the segment.’ In other words, another variant spun off an exisiting platform.
So just what is the A5 Sportback?

Can I expect a hot version?
The product planners say no, because the Sportback will be priced to steal market share, rather than act as an S or RS halo car. But expect a familiar Audi engine line-up, including the latest 2.0-litre TFSI unit which delivers 211bhp and 258lb ft, and the 240bhp 3.0-litre V6 TDI which musters 369lb ft of torque.
