After we saw the new A5 and S5 Coupe models at the begining of June, Audi is unveiling their four door brothers. The all new A5 Sportback and S5 Sportback are ready to make their first public appearance during this year Paris Motor Show.

In terms of design, the cars are similar to what we saw on the coupes, except for the extra doors. Inside though, there will be a lot more room. The new Audi A5 and S5 Sportback have grown significantly inside. The interior length has gained 17mm, the shoulder room for driver and front passenger up to 11mm and the rear knee room 24mm.

With 480 litres of luggage capacity, the A5 Sportback rates among the best in its class. Audi also offers the option of sensor control for opening and closing the standard-fit electric luggage compartment lid.

The rear seat back splits 40:20:40 as standard. The load-area width measures exactly one metre. With the rear seats folded down, it can even accommodate 1,300 litres.

As an alternative to the standard-fit analogue instrument dials, the Audi virtual cockpit with its various display options brings the driver added convenience. The large, high-resolution TFT monitor (12.3 inches) presents richly detailed graphics. Audi’s flagship infotainment version is MMI navigation plus with MMI touch. It includes such features as 10 GB of flash storage, a DVD drive, Audi connect services free of charge for three years, up to five free navigation updates and an 8.3-inch monitor with a resolution of 1,024 x 480 pixels. 

The Audi smartphone interface integrates iOS and Android phones in an environment specially developed for them in the MMI. The Audi phone box connects smartphones to the on-board antenna to provide superior reception quality. It also charges the smartphone inductively, without any wires, using the Qi standard. The Bang & Olufsen Sound System with 3D sound has an amplifier that supplies 755 watts of power to 19 loudspeakers.

Customers can choose between two TFSI and three TDI engine versions for the new Audi A5 Sportback. They produce between 190 hp and 286 hp of power. Compared with the previous model, Audi has reduced their fuel consumption by as much as 22 percent while increasing power output by up to 17 percent.

Sharing the stage at Paris will be the flagship Audi S5 Sportback, which draws upon a new V6 turbocharged TFSI powerplant to deliver a hefty 354PS and 500Nm of torque from 1,370 to 4,500 rpm. From rest, it will blast past 62mph in only 4.7 seconds and can reach a limited top speed of 155mph.

As an option for the S5 Sportback, Audi complements quattro all-wheel drive with another dynamic technology component – the sport differential. It uses two superposition gears to distribute torque between the rear wheels.
