A5 Sportback

Design

  • Exterior

     

    A brief moment. The blink of an eye. Sometimes that is as long as it takes to provoke enthusiasm. One glance at the Audi A5 Sportback is enough to sense that this is one of those moments. A coupé – completely re-interpreted. And a character which lets you discover that each moment is special from the very first metres.

     

    Dynamic features

    From the elongated, three-dimensionally carved bonnet to the rear, the design echoes the classic form of a two-door. The sharp distinctive lines convey vehicle expression and stance. The flat roof is stretched elegantly over the frameless doors and a sporty shoulder line accentuates the large wheels. Short overhangs and a longer wheelbase create additional dynamics.

     

    Powerful elegance

    The elegant yet powerful roofline of the Audi A5 Sportback is rounded off by its smoothly accentuated rear. The redesigned rear lights are particularly fascinating: they are the optical link between the shoulder line at the side and the edge of the bumper. The horizontal lines of the rear bumper accentuate the decisiveness of the design; the diffuser insert in a contrasting colour ensures increased dynamics.

     

    Confident expression

    The front fog lights have been given a new design; they are enclosed by a black high-gloss blade. The xenon headlights with integrated LED daytime running light strip are a special eye-catcher. The newly interpreted Singleframe with its sculptural structure makes the vehicle look more self-confident, while the elegant lines of the bonnet make the car lighter and sportier.

     
  • Interior

     

    The interior radiates elegance and sportiness. The architecture is harmonious and creates a lively atmosphere. Selected materials emphasise the high quality of workmanship, which you will see and above all feel. New steering wheels, colours and chrome applications emphasise this feeling.

     

    High-quality cockpit

    The standard leather-covered sports steering wheel in 3-spoke design provides a good grip, as does the ergonomically shaped gear or selection lever knob, which is also leather-covered.

     

    Integrated innovations

    The MMI® navigation plus has been enhanced. Operation is intuitive via the MMI® button with integrated joystick or voice control. MMI navigation plus features include a high-quality 7-inch colour display.

     

    Comfort and space

    All seats offer comfort and strong lateral support. On request, you can also sit on ventilated and heated climate-controlled comfort seats in the front. New colours add diversity to the interior, and the Fine Nappa leather offers even more seating comfort. Unusually roomy even in the back: for relaxed travelling even on long journeys.

     

    Generous and variable

    The generous luggage compartment with a loading width of 1,000 mm is extremely variable. The asymmetrical rear seat can be split and folded down to allow the loading volume to be extended quickly from 480 to 1,283 litres. The optional through-load facility with removable ski/snowboard bag facilitates the stowing of longer objects, so that you can look forward to your next transport in a relaxed manner.

     

     

Engines and transmissions

  • TFSI®

    Sporty and efficient engines

     

    The A5 Sportback features the 2.0 TFSI engine producing 185kW (252hp) and 370Nm. The eight-speed tiptronic in combination with quattro drive makes the most of our technology to put powerful excellence on the road.

Efficiency

  • The Audi A5 Sportback. Consistently efficient

     

    Vorsprung durch Technik is the claim to which the Audi brand is committed. Audi consistently applies various efficiency measures within the framework of this all-embracing concept. As the developer of numerous innovations, Audi have made a lasting impact on the automotive industry.

     

    Start-Stop-System

    The start-stop system helps to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by switching the engine off when the vehicle is at a standstill; for example when you stop at traffic lights. And it starts up again fully automatically when you want to drive off again. The system is automatically activated when the ignition is switched on. It can simply be deactivated at the touch of a button if it is not required.

     

    Driver information system with efficiency program

    The display of the optional driver information system brings together a wide range of individual displays in the centre of the driving area and permanently indicates the vehicle’s current operating status. The integrated efficiency program also provides the driver with an overview of consumption data, the displays for auxiliary consumers, an enlarged gearshift indicator and fuel-saving suggestions for ultra-economical driving.

     

    S tronic

    The S tronic gearbox brings a significant fuel saving. In the automatic mode, its control function performs gearshifts swiftly and times them for optimised fuel consumption. The wide spread of ratios covered by S tronic allows the top gears to operate at very low engine speeds.

     

    Energy recovery

    Increasing the generator voltage converts kinetic energy into usable electrical energy when the vehicle is coasting or braking. When the vehicle accelerates again, the battery supplies the stored energy back into the vehicle network, taking the pressure off the alternator and thus helping to save fuel.
