I’m very excited for this car, simply because it provides a more sporting, even more attractive option for buyers looking for something with the versatility of a hatch, but comfort and style as well. At the Q5 driving experience I became smitten with Audi’s CUV and appreciated many of it’s unique details which helped it achieve a bar higher than the A4 Avant in terms of the overall impression it gives. The A5 Sportback makes the same upwardly mobile stride. It provides a more modern, crisp antithesis to the taller Q5 or the A4 Avant. It is sportier – the A5 design language an inspired alterative to the A4 Avant. It’s simply gorgeous from the outside, as mentioned, the design of the C-pillar, the way in which it tapers into the trunk, the width and heft of the overall design, replete with many sinew creases. It all goes a great deal towards masking the car’s actual size and is a definite one-up compared to the 5 series GT.
