|Domestic Audi cars distributor Euromobil has announced the availability of the Audi A5 Sportback.|
The 5-door A5 Sportback variant sits between the popular A4 and the A6, A6 Hybrid variants in Euromobil’s most current Audi line-up. Based on the elegantly built A5 Coupe, the A5 Sportback has the rear doors and the recognizable swooping curves toward the rear of the car. The front fascia features the trademark Audi grille with sculpted lines, whereas the S-Line model takes on a more exclusive grille and bumper, larger 18-inch wheels, adaptative bi-Xenon headlights with the unmistakable LED daytime running lights and LED rear lights.
Audi A5 Sportback enlarged from the Coupe version to meet specified requirements
The Audi A5 Sportback has a longer wheelbase at 2,810mm, compared to its direct sibling’s 2,751mm. Boot space, too, has been enlarged somewhat at 480 liters, and with the seats down the boot can take up to 1,283 liters.
Inside, Audi’s refinements include a high quality cabin with 3-zone automatic climate control, Audi symphony radio with 6-CD changer & SD card reader, split-fold rear seats, Driver’s Information System (DIS), and Audi drive select adaptive dynamics system. The S-Line A5 Sportback takes it a step further with full Milano leather upholstery & sports seats, multifunction 3-spoke steering wheels with shift paddles, acoustic parking sensors and automatic headlight and wiper activation. Optional interior add-ons for the A5 Sportback consist of the MMI navigation plus that has Bluetooth, internet access capabilities and the Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System with 14 speakers.
In the new Audi A5 Sportback, the system adds a fourth ‘Efficiency’ option to its settings list, which originally offered ‘Comfort’, ‘Auto’ and ‘Dynamic’ modes. In the Efficiency mode, all the above functions, plus the air conditioning unit, are configured for minimal power consumption. If MMI navigation plus is fitted, Audi drive select also incorporates a fifth ‘Individual’ setting which allows even more precise tailoring of the various elements to suit personal preferences.
The A5 Sportback is equipped with the quattro all-wheel drive and mated to a 7-speed S-tronic twin-clutch transmission, which seamlessly launches from 0-100km/h in 6.5 seconds. Powered by the 2.0 TFSI turbocharged and direct injected, four cylinder engine, it churns 225hp and 350Nm of torque between 1,500 -4,500 rpm.
The new A5 Sportback incorporates numerous technologies and driver assistance features designed to aid the driver and enhance the overall driving experience; the features are the driver information system with rest recommendation (standard), Kerb view and Parking system plus.
