The new A5 Sportback carries the design language that we have seen on the latest A5 Coupe and A4 Sedan. This means the vehicle has sharp lines with more aggressive face.

Audi also made changes within the car. Previously, Audi had failed to deliver the latest technologies and this resulted in them falling back behind their competitors. Now, with a futuristic interior, Audi is clearly beyond its competitors. The new interior includes the Audi’s virtual cockpit that is present on sport cars such as R8 or TT and on family cars such as the A4 and the new A5 Sportback. New models also come with Audi’s latest infotainment system and if you don’t care about spending some extra money, then you can also get wireless charging for your phone and even Wi-fi.
Under the hood of 2017 Audi A5 Sportback, you will see the same engine from the new A5 Coupe. It is a 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder engine which is able to make 252 horsepower at 5,000 to 6,000 rpm. The engine also produces 273 pound-feet of torque between 1,600 and 4,500 rpm. Power is delivered to the front wheels ( unless you buy the Quattro all-wheel drive system )by a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
On the other hand, S5, which is more sporty, comes with Turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine which makes 354 horsepower and 368 pound-feet of torque. All of this power allows you to reach at 60 mph in 4.7 seconds.
Coming Europe earlier next year, it is not known when the car will become available in the US market but keep in mind, Audi officials said that the car was designed with the U.S. market in mind.
