Its official – the A5 Sportback has been spotted lurking in the shadows! Our snappers caught these amazing images of the almost undisguised Audi testing in Germany, ahead of its scheduled debut at the Frankfurt show in September.
Based on the two-door A5 coupe, the Sportback will use a more practical five-door configuration as you can see clearly in the photos. But a more curvy and sleek design will distinguish it from the more conservative A4 Avant. In effect, it will sit in the range as a smaller brother to the A7 four-door coupe – Audi’s rival to the Mercedes CLS.
Engine choices will include only the more powerful options, including V6 petrol and diesels, as well as a storming RS5 version producing around 450bhp from its 4.2-litre V8.
