Seven years after the introduction of the A5 Sportback, the new model now makes its appearance. The five-door coupé combines style, luxury and performance with state of the art infotainment and connectivity. While the new A5 Sportback is sharper, stronger and more focused, it also offers everyday practicality thanks to greater efficiency and increased interior space. Plus, the second generation comes with a completely re-engineered suspension, high-performance drives and innovative driver assistance systems.
The wave-pattern shoulder line imparts the Audi A5 Sportback with emotional elegance. The characteristic design feature, already present on the previous model, is now even more striking with its three-dimensional character. The interplay of light and shadow becomes all the more alluring.
The long sweeping wave with the pronounced bulges over the wheel arches underscores the quattro DNA. At the transition from the front wheel arches to the doors, a three-dimensional chrome trim element highlights the sporty ambitions of the new A5. From the A-pillar, which has been shifted far to the rear, the roof extends over the athletic body with its frameless doors as a flat, flowing dome.
The new quattro with ultra technology is available for the TFSI and TDI four-cylinder engines with manual transmission. The efficiency-optimized all-wheel drive system does not perceptibly differ from permanent systems in terms of traction and driving dynamics.
This is all thanks to the combination of the newly developed all-wheel drive components with a sophisticated operating strategy and a torque split perfectly matched to the car. The all-wheel drive system’s intelligent control works predictively, always looking ahead by means of a comprehensive array of sensors and the continuous analysis of the driving dynamics, road condition and driver behavior data collected.
18 LEDs shine through two lenses to produce the high beam of the Matrix LED headlights. Provided with information from the camera on the interior mirror, the LED control unit switches them on individually or dims them in 64 stages as necessary.
This enables the Matrix LED headlights to produce several million light distribution variants. They always illuminate the road optimally with a quality of light similar to daylight, without dazzling other road users. To prevent the driver from being blinded by glare from highly reflective traffic signs, these are specifically illuminated with reduced power.
Optional full-surface panoramic glass sunroof for a light-flooded interior.
The optional 3D Bang & Olufsen Sound System creates a highly realistic three-dimensional sound impression.
The optional ambient lighting offers 30 colours to choose from to create a fitting interior mood.
Audi offers the new A5 Sportback with an upgraded list of standard equipment that includes a wide range of extra functions. These include xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights and LED rear lights, Audi MMI radio plus with 7-inch color display, Bluetooth, a three-spoke leather multifunction steering wheel (including shift paddles in models with automatic transmission), front center armrest, folding rear seat back with 40:20:40 split, and LED interior lighting.
Also standard are the Audi drive select dynamic handling system, the assistance systems Audi pre sense city and multicollision brake assist system, and the variable speed limiter.
The new Audi A5 Sportback appears in two TFSI and three TDI engine versions. They produce between 140 kW (190 hp) and 210 kW (286 hp). Compared with the previous model, Audi has reduced their fuel consumption by as much as 22 percent while increasing power output by up to 17 percent.
The pulsating heart of the new Audi S5 Sportback is a fundamentally new 3.0 TFSI engine. The direct gasoline injection engine with turbocharging has an output of 260 kW (354 hp) and produces a hefty torque of 500 Nm (368.8 lb-ft) from 1,370 to 4,500 rpm.
The new Audi S5 Sportback combines emotional design and functionality with the road performance of a sports car. It can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds. The newly developed, turbocharged V6 engine produces 354 bhp. With an unladen weight of 1,660 kilograms (3,659.7 lb), the five-door sports coupé is 85 kilograms (187.4 lb) lighter than its predecessor.
The sharper exterior design and the numerous S-specific details in the interior underscore its dynamic character.
