What’s not quite an Audi A5 and not quite an A4 Avant ? Well it’s the long (or never) awaited A5 Sportback . This spy shot of a camo-free car confirms its place in the Audi lineup. The future car is basically a hatchback built on the A4/A5 platform, but Audi believes its curvy enough to be lumped in with the A5’s coupe family.
The Sportback will likely come with the 265 hp 3.2-liter V6 from the standard A5, and possibly the 354 hp 4.2-liter V8 from the S5. If the A5 Sportback isn’t Audi’s mystery model of the summer (yeah, we doubt it too,) then it will have its first official showing in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
