The A5 Sportback is a little bit different to other saloons on the market. The car’s shape is distinctive and alluring, while the degree of comfort felt inside is hard to match.
Out on the open road the Sportback changes direction effortlessly and accelerates with spirit.
Call on the guidance of Jardine Motors Audi’s brand specialists to discover all of the A5 Sportback’s features. At the same time you can request a test drive and discuss a tailored finance plan.
The car’s cabin is one of the safest places to be on the road. Audi’s Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) acts as another pair of eyes by analysing the vehicle’s movements and reacting to a loss of stability.
Rest recommendation joins it on the standard features list and prompts you to stop and recharge if it detects a change in driver behaviour.
Full size front, side and head airbags protect occupants from all angles. Infant passengers are held firmly in their seat using one of the three ISOFIX mountings.
The vehicle has a streamlined form from front to back which deviates from the typical saloon profile.
Where the roofline usually ends at a flat tailgate the A5 Sportback keeps going all the way to a lipped boot lid. This arcing line is contrasted by folded body panels and sharp Xenon Plus headlights.
Every model in the range arrives with an exterior aluminium package which lines the grille and windows with a glossy trim. The standard alloy wheel selection ranges from 17 to 19-inches in size depending on your chosen model, and Audi’s options list offers extra styles should you want a more personalised look.
Customisation is possible inside the cabin too where your preferred upholstery and inlays can be specified. A three-spoke leather multifunction steering wheel sits inside each A5 Sportback iteration, and automatic models include paddle shifters behind it.
Attention has been paid to the cockpit’s functionality as well as its design as the auto dimming rear view mirror proves.
The door mirrors can also be adjusted electronically from inside, and the centre armrest houses two 12-volt accessory sockets.
Audi’s long-held reputation for enduring driving appeal is strengthened by the A5 Sportback and its multiple engine choices.
Both the TDI diesel and TFSI petrol powertrain options comprise quattro versions which boost the vehicle’s road holding ability. The 3.0-litre TDI quattro is the strongest of them all with peak power of 242bhp and 580Nm of torque.
The engine helps the saloon get from
0-60mph in under six seconds. A cleaner and more economical 2.0-litre TDI ultra
is within reach if you count low fuel consumption and emissions as a priority.
Significant refinements mean the ultra unit sips fuel to achieve up to 67.3mpg combined.
Audi equipment transforms the cabin into more than simply a place to drive. The Audi Concert audio system is the car’s entertainment hub as it gives access to a CD player, SD card reader and auxiliary socket.
A DAB digital radio entertains and
informs at the same time by communicating travel news in real-time. Staying
connected when on the move is easy in the A5 Sportback. Mobile phone access as
part of the Bluetooth
® interface lets calls be taken hands-free.
The Audi A5 uses the Self-locking centre differential quattro system. Constantly monitoring the road conditions, the quattro system can transfer up to 100% of the power to the front or rear wheels, if needed. In normal road conditions, the torque power is divided to a 50:50 front to rear wheel ratio.
