With a growing number of specific niches being filled by automakers, it’s no surprise that the Audi A5 Sportback will remain to survive as part of the A5 family. Some photographers caught a prototype for the second-generation A5 Sportback, basically Audi’s answer to the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe. In Europe, Audi has actually provided a Sportback variation of the A5 from 2010.

It can be said that the A5 Sportback, like the coupe and convertible, will include an evolutionary exterior design. From the side, the A5 Sportback appears like a smaller, more compact A7, seemingly longer than its two-door siblings. In advance, the household similarity to the rest of the Audi lineup is biggest thanks to Audi’s signature trapezoidal grille and headlights that have a comparable shape to the 2017 A4 sedan. Out back, the taillights appear like they have actually been extended as compared to the existing A5, and an LED brake light periods almost the whole width of the rear window.

Under the hood, the second-generation A5 will possibly have the exact same engine choices as the 2017 A4, which include a 252-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 for base vehicles, a 354-hp turbocharged V-6 in the S5, and likely a twin-turbo V-6 in the high-performance RS 5. Anticipate a seven-speed dual-clutch and the ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic to be the sole transmission options in the A5 lineup. Like the A4 sedan, the A5 must be available in front- and all-wheel-drive setups. In the U.S., nevertheless, it’s not likely that we’ll get the Sportback because of overlapping with the A4.
