2018 Audi A5 Sportback in Austin

 

The 2018 Audi A5 Sportback is the Sleek, Midsize Car You've Been Dreaming Of

The Audi A5 is a long-time legend, with decades of performance experience under its belt and a strong record of power and capability. For 2018, there's an all-new Sportback variation for the iconic A5, that blends seamlessly into the heritage look of this model, and offers a smooth middle ground between the typical coupe design, and the capability and convenience of a crossover. New trim levels include the A5 Sportback Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige.

A Cabin That's Surprisingly Spacious

For a car that's modeled on the sleek and compact dimensions of the classic A5 coupe, the interior of the 2018 A5 Sportback is a lot more spacious than you might think. Front ergonomically-designed driver and passenger seats and a rear bench seat allow for seating for five. Pop up the liftback for 21.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind the back row, and fold the rear seats down for up to 35 cubic feet in total--storage numbers similar to some small crossovers.

Brand-New Styling

Don't call it a coupe. This four-door, liftback-style midsize car is long and low, with a sleek and vivid character line. The windswept roofline is accented nicely by frameless-window doors, and every curve, angle, and notch has been carefully created to fit perfectly with the overall look and feel of this exceptionally athletic and agile new Sportback.

Fast-Paced Performance and Standard AWD

The powertrain of the 2018 A5 Sportback has been taken from the classic A5 line, with standard quattro all-wheel drive and a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Paired to Audi's seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, this sporty four-door is good for 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. Thanks to intelligent engineering and a smarter use of materials, the Sportback is quick and responsive. If you're looking for more power, the related--but separate--Audi S5 Sportback opts up to a 354-horsepower 3.0-liter V6.

Tech and Safety Wrapped in the Perfect Package

It shouldn't be a surprise that an Audi is loaded with amazing new tech. Standard equipment includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 7.0-inch display, Audi's MMI infotainment, and a 10-spreaker sound system. Premium Plus and Prestige trims add an 8.3-inch touchscreen display, navigation, and a Bang & Olufsen premium audio. Across the lineup, the new A5 Sportback offers available driver-assistance safety features like rear collision mitigation, blind-spot monitoring, front and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, automatic high-beams and a traffic sign reader.
