Following an official teaser sketch released by Audi, we now have the very first images of the A5 Sportback, with almost no camouflage, shot in East Germany late last night. The A5 Sportback is intended as an answer to four-door coupes like Mercedes-Benzí CLS.
The Sportback will proceed with Audiís aim to differentiate the A5 into a separate model family. Obviously, the A5 Sportback will not remain a two-door as the coupe, but rather a five-door configuration. However, in order to be distinguished form the A4 Avant, the car might propose a more sleek design turning it into a smaller brother of the A7 four-door coupe. The A5 Sportback will be equipped with bigger engines than the standard A5, such as Audiís 4.2-liter V8, although the most sporty version will be the RS 5, which is expected to debut 12 to 18 months after the initial launch.
