Audi has today released another teaser pic of its upcoming A5 Sportback, a car it says combines the best of coupe elegance with avant (wagon) practicality.
The Sportback, as well as being the third member of the A5 model family, has also helped Audi effectively create a new segment.
The A5 Sportback will feature the same range of TFSI, FSI and TDI engines as the regular A5 range while boasting an elegant, elongated, sporty profile.
The large hatchback fits perfectly into the tail-end styling. The spoiler lip and the diffuser insert provide contrast and emphasize the athletic tautness of the elongated contour.
The coupe-like silhouette is the result of a roof section with a long, tapering roofline that is moderately lower by 36mm than the A4 Sedan and of the short overhangs at the front and rear as well as the long wheelbase of 2,810 mm and the four frameless doors with their slim, dynamic window styling.
The unusual hatchback design is distinctively emblematic of the vehicle’s excellent functionality enabling luggage volume of 480 litres.
Release timing is yet to be confirmed.
