Official: Audi Launches A5 Sportback In Europe

Audi has just officially released full details and plenty of photos on their new A5 Sportback model and unfortunately the German automaker has no plans to bring the surprisingly great looking model to North America.

This hatchback version of the A5 (currently available in both Coupe and Cabriolet form) is a unique vehicle and Audi is expanding on the recently popular four-door coupe idea, delivering the A5 Sportback as a five-door (hatchback) coupe. And it seems to work, due in part to the short overhangs, long wheelbase, wide track, frameless doors. The car even sits 1.42-inches lower than the A4 Sedan and when equipped with optional 19-inch wheels looks seriously sporty.

The A5 Sportback is also a four-seater.

Five engine/s will be offered including three diesels and two gasoline powerplants. The diesels include the 2.0 TDI with 170 and 258 ft-lbs of torque, the 2.7 TDI with 190hp and 295 ft-lbs of torque and a 3.0-liter V6 TDI with 240hp and a massive 369 ft-lbs of torque. The gasoline engines are, as expected, the 2.0 TFSI engine making 211hp and 258 ft-lbs of torque and the 3.2-liter V6 with 265hp.

Cargo space is 17 cubic feet in the rear hatch, which expands to 34.61 cu.-ft. with the rear seats folded flat.

Pricing ranges from 36,050 euros for the 2.0 TDI with 6-speed manual transmission to 47,950 euros for the 3.0 TDI quattro with 7-speed S-tronic.

The A5 Sportback goes on sale this September.
