Audi, like excited children on Christmas Eve just couldn’t wait for the big day to arrive. I can imagine the feverish idea of revealing their latest car early, that then developed into a conversation, and then a meeting, and before you know it… Ta da! The German company are very pleased with their new A5 and so maybe it is unsurprising that the 2017 Audi A5 Sportback was just too good to wait until the end of the month.
Not bad looking, right? If you really fancied an Audi A5 Coupe but need more practicality then this Sportback option has you covered. Retaining the silhouette of a Coupe but adding two rear doors, the 2017 Audi A5 Sportback makes for a good compromise. There are two engines with a range of outputs; a petrol and diesel 2.0 litre, however, the range topper get a 3.0 litre TDI with 282 BHP.
The interior is more spacious than before and incorporates the new architecture from the standard A5. That means it can be optioned with the snazzy virtual cockpit and the fit and finish is very polished.
This 2017 Audi A5 Sportback also comes in S5 guise and that means a 3.0 litre TFSI petrol producing 349 BHP.
