The 5-series GT competes with SUVs and vans, and not with a A5/A7 sportback, CLS or Panamera. Perhaps the name "GT" is somewhat missleading...
The true competitor in this 4-door coupe segment from BMW was the CSL. But its development has been frozen. Unfortunately.

This is completely different segment to a 5 series gt, but I get the feeling this will end up looking like an a6 replacement as opposed to a class competitor.

But here’s hoping we won’t have to wait too long for the RS version. This car kinda reminds me of the R8 cross with the A4 though.

I like how the long tapering roofline has been finished off at the C- ar with a kinked windowline, but Audi also says the A5 Sportback will be further distinguished by two pairs of frameless rear doors and the fact it sits lower than the A4 saloon

What is exciting with the A5 Sportsback is the Boot space which will also be generous, with 480 litres being able to be carried with the rear seats up and a sizable 980 litres of space created with the rear seats folded down. Isn’t that spacious enoguh for the entire pack?

Audi Australia will be taking a top-down approach to the new model’s roll-out, so odds are a range-topping 3.2 litre V6 quattro model will be first off the rank. This is a cool innovation on the part of Audi 5 family

Well, despite belonging to the same family as the current A5 Coupe, the A5 Sportback aka Australia will be a very different beast. Four doors instead of two, a hatch instead of a boot and a greater emphasis on practicality will mark out the A5 Sportback as a far more versatile vehicle. Now Audi is talking!

I believe this sportsback on the A5 series will really drive sportsback enthusiast and this will be a good competitor in the segment.

The Sportback is styled as a combination of the best bits of a saloon, coupe and estate, and is the third model of the A5 range, next to the Coupe and Cabriolet

This equisitely styled sportsback will surely create a wave on Audi market once this comes out.
