the sports hatchback for A5 Sportback
. Will he be able to strengthen the position of the “rings” in a rapidly rising niche in the premium segment?
The concept of a major five-door hatchback is not new to Audi, but if 30 years ago this model was replaced by a wagon, the Sportback is modern, built on the platform Audi A4, is positioned as a car with sporting ambitions, which combines the comfort of a sedan, elegant profile and practicality of a wagon. No wonder the German marketers refer it to the prestigious line A5, previously consisted only of the coupe and convertible.
To create the Sportback came in a fundamentally different way than the development of another luxury German hatchback â€“ BMW 5 Series GT. Common items can be selected only deprived of part of elegant doors. But if slim and practical “Bavarian” inspired by French Renault Vel Satis and by as much as 86 mm higher than the base sedan, then the Audi, on the contrary, sportier and 36 mm lower than the 4-door A4 Sedan (28mm and wider). Initially the model will be offered with 6 engines, and by the middle of 2010 the line will join three other units (including the 4.2-liter V8). All modifications of standard A5 Sportback will be equipped with energy recovery system braking with the starter-generator, and version 2.0 TDI and 2.0 TFSI have a system Start/Stop. Depending on the motor the car will be equipped with one of three types of gearbox: 6-speed manual transmission, a CVT multitronic or robotic 7-speed S-tronic. Front wheel drive models (2.0 TDI, 2.7 TDI and 2.0 TFSI) will receive an electronic limited-slip differential, and the most powerful Sportback will get a brand four-wheel drive transmission quattro (sport differential on the rear axle is optional).
Interior design trends virtually identical to the A4 and A5 models. The rear of the cabin is a cross between coupe and sedan: only 2, but they are more than full with wide separation “zone”. In Ukraine the new 2016 Audi A5 Sportback will be available in October. The base price of the car has not been revealed, but according to official sources, the hatchback will be a little cheaper than the two-door A5 coupe, the price at which domestic dealers start from $ 39589 euros.
