Audi A5 Sportback: More information

Audi A5 Sportback
We found more information about the rumored Audi A5 Sportback. Check it out!

In addition to the existing Avant estate and Allroad crossover wagon range, the product planners from Ingolstadt are now probing where they can shoehorn in Sportback models – and the A5 is next to receive the sporty wagon treatment.

The A5 Sportback will combine styling elements of the A5, A4 saloon and A4 Avant – wrapped up in a super-sleek roofline, frameless side windows and a big sloping tailgate. Integrated in the hatchback is a motorised extending air deflector, which adds a sporty touch and works wonders for the downforce at 100mph-plus. Perfect for autobahn storming or posing.

A well placed engineer from Ingolstadt told CAR Online: ‘With the Avant and the Sportback, we can attack the 3-series Touring and the T-model C-class from two sides. For Audi, this should mean about 50 percent more combined volume, 25 percent higher conquest rates and a 15 percent increase in market share in the segment.’

Production starts in April 2009.
