Audi unveils the new A5 Sportback

Following the A5 Coupé presented back in June, Audi has released the first images of the five-door Sportback version.


The new A5 Sportback is 4,733 millimeters in length (+21 mm compared to the previous model), a 2,824 millimeter wheelbase (+14 mm), 1,843 millimeters wide (-11 mm) wide and 1,386 millimeters high (-5 mm).

The car has maintained the same, balanced proportions, with an extended wheelbase, short overhangs and a long, wraparound hood.

The design language adopts the same features of the new Audi A5 Coupé, with tighter surfaces, a stronger side character line, a wider front grille.

The front end is much more aggressive, due to the four creases on the hood, and the sharp angles  of the bumper, the flatter, wider grille and side air intakes

The wave-pattern shoulder line underlines the “quattro” technology. The window contour of the front and rear side windows is underlined by a trim strip in matt aluminum silver

Seen form the side, the new A5 Sportback is more muscular thanks to the stronger shoulder crease line, the protruding borders of the front side air intakes, and the bolder treatment of the sill area and rear bumper, which gives form to a sharp, angled highlight.

The rear end design is based on horizontal lines. The slim, three-dimensionally shaped rear lights use LED technology as standard. The third brake light on the upper edge of the rear window spans its entire width.

The headlights are positioned slightly above the top edge of the Singleframe grille, which is drawn down quite far.

The A5 Sportback has optional LED headlights and Audi Matrix LED headlights. The new lighting signature of the Audi Matrix LED headlights creates a characteristic, focused four-eye face reminiscent of the Ur-quattro.

Like in the A5 Coupé, the interior of the new A5 Sportback has a more modern look and a layout that emphasizes the interior width.
