Audi A5 Sportback: second incarnation in the mid-size family


Audi A5 is a milestone marking the completion of the renewal of a whole line of cars of the German manufacturer. Let's take a look at the main changes in the classic coupe with 4 rings on the radiator.


Exterior

Audi A5 stands out for its strict appearance. The slim Sportback nevertheless retains several graceful corners and strokes on the body. They mainly touched the hood and sides. The asymmetrical roof slope merges into a modest tailgate above the weighty bumper. This geometry makes the Five seem to be pulling backward. The «nose» of the car is crowned with a branded hexagonal chrome-plated radiator grille, which hides one of 4 engine options.

Motor

Sportback comes in 4 engine variations: two petrol and two diesel.
Both petrol “hearts” are equipped with 4 cylinders, 16 timing valves and a turbine. With a total capacity of 2 liters, they are divided into basic and reinforced versions. The base squeezes out 190 hp and 320 Nm at medium revs. A more pumped engine confidently accelerates 250 horsepower and generates 370 Newtons / meter of peak torque without any problems.
A less efficient diesel engine can boast of almost all the characteristics of a weak gasoline engine with the only exception that there are two turbochargers, and the peak torque rises to 400 with the same 190 hp at maximum speed.
The advanced diesel engine has got two additional cylinders and V-geometry. The capacity has increased to 3 liters, and a total of 6 cylinders, with the support of a turbocharger and a system for adjusting the valve lift, move 218 «horses» and 400 Nm of torque.

Differences in the device have almost no effect on driving performance. Audi's top speed is fixed at 235-250 Km / h. The first and most important segment from 0 to 100 Sportback takes 6-7.5 seconds. Gluttony, however, directly depends on the type of fuel: gasoline engines burn about 7 liters per 100 kilometers, diesel engines will be more economical - only 4.5 liters.

Finishing and salon

Inside, the «German» fully corresponds to the first impression: expensive and strict. You don't have to worry about quality, everything inside is assembled reliably from the best available materials: leather, expensive plastic, metal inserts, which together create a wonderful and stylish microcosm. In terms of ergonomics, the Audi A5 also made a significant leap forward. Almost all control elements are within immediate reach of the driver: soft, comfortable seats are provided for all passengers. The back sofa can easily accommodate three adults, while the comfort will not suffer at all.

How to rent an Audi A5 Sportback

Despite the slightly «arrogant» and pompous appearance, Audi can easily be found in the garage of many motorists. First of all, comfort and branded German quality are appreciated in it. You can try to ride such a car on a test drive, or you can rent it on our website and go wherever you want!
