Audi Australia has announced a practicality boost for the Audi A5 Sportback and A7 Sportback models for 2013, making the versatility of a fifth seat now standard across both vehicle ranges.

The revised interior layout for both the Audi A5 Sportback and A7 Sportback headlines a list of updates for the 2013 model year. The A5 now includes a memory function for the driver’s seat and electric mirrors with heating, memory, auto dimming, reversing auto-dip and folding functions as standard. The A7 benefits from gains in engine performance, with the 3.0 TFSI petrol upped 8kW to 228kW and the 3.0 TDI diesel – now standard with an eight-speed tiptronic automatic transmission – bumped up 80Nm to 580Nm.

Prices for both variants of the Audi A7 Sportback have also been reduced for the new year with the diesel now starting at $135,750 (a saving of $7000) and the petrol at $143,800 ($3500 less).

Audi says the new pricing structure allows for the introduction of the A7 3.0 TDI Biturbo model – due to arrive next month accompanied by the Audi A6 3.0 TDI Biturbo - with an anticipated starting price around $160,000.

      There’s one that drives past me everyday on my way to work and you always see it prick a few people’s attention when it glides past. Stunning to look at.
