The pricing and specs for the all-new five-door coupe, the Audi A5 Sportback, has been announced.
The Audi A5 Sportback launches in Ireland with five engine variants, three TFSI and two TDI. The diesel engine model starts from €47,350 for the 2.0 TDI 150 bhp SE while the petrol engine model starts at €48,010 for the 2.0 TFSI 190 bhp SE. Also available in the range is a powerful 2.0 TDI 190 bhp S tronic and a 2.0 TFSI 252 bhp S tronic option.
The Audi A5 Sportback has been a design icon for the Audi brand since the model's launch in 2009 and the all-new A5 reaffirms this position. Masterfully redesigned, the new A5 Sportback features a new head-turning exterior characterised by a muscular chassis and wave-like patterning. Innovative multi-material construction means the car weighs 15kg less than its predecessor, making it more agile and fuel efficient. The luxurious interior is spacious and, at 480 litres of luggage capacity, among the highest in its class.
The Audi A5 Sportback is equipped with an extensive array of equipment as standard. Xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights and LED rear lights provide fantastic visibility on the road in all conditions, while LED interior lights illuminate key features.
True to the Vorsprund durch Technik philosophy, the new A5 contains the latest infotainment features including the Audi MMI navigation system with 7-inch colour display, Bluetooth and USB charging functionality, a dedicated smartphone interface of iOS and Android and a 3 month free trial of Audi Connect. The new model also features innovative driver assistance systems, such as Audi pre sense city, and front and rear parking sensors, both of which assure safety on the road. Audi drive select dynamic handling system allows the driver to select specific profiles ideally suited to their preferences and driving conditions.
The Audi A5 Sportback S-Line trim includes additional premium features, such as LED headlights, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, leather-upholstered seats, 18-inch alloys and sports suspension.
Virtual cockpit is also available as an option on both trim lines and features a fully digital instrument cluster with various display options and projects information directly in front of the driver via a large high-resolution monitor with richly detailed graphics.
The all-new Audi A5 Sportback is available to order at Audi Centre now, with first deliveries expected in January 2017.
