2016 Audi A5 Sportback Review
Audi applied all-new redesign for their 2016 Audi A5 Sportback. It requires your wisdom to choose any variants of A5. Convertible version or also called as Cabriolet brings the real functional open-roof features. Then, the Coupe version will remind you about a sporty version of A5. Meanwhile, the Sportback can be the similar with the sedan version because of four-door design from Audi. However, they did not remove the coupe-like for Sportback version in order to keep A5’s characteristic stay in the market scene. The exterior feel of A5 Sportback has similar design with coupe. The main different is on the numbers of cue which nested on the back segment. For the interior, they claimed that A4’s interior is same inside the A5. They share the same dashboard each other when I viewed the cabin.
Under the Hood
It is always interesting to talk about powertrain of a car including 2016 Audi A5 Sportback. As same as other versions, Sportback comes with three engine variants. The base engine is 2.0 Liter turbocharged with four-cylinder engine. This engine will come as standard for base model of A5. The minimum power of this base engine is just 211 horsepower. Secondly, the mid-range engine is 3.0 Liter V6 engine with its 333 horsepower. The spec is quite enough for a sedan. Last but not least is a new 4.0 L twin-turbo V8 engine. In other words, the new engine replaces the old 4.2 Liter V8 engine of A5’s predecessors. Audi declares this highest engine can produce more than 450 horsepower. All-wheel drive is offered as optional feature with six-speed manual transmission. I heard a rumor about seven-speed dual clutch will be optional too for base model.
I predict the 2016 Audi A5 Sportback won’t too much far away with other versions’ prices. Audi will set 41k dollars as its starting MSRP. The release date will hit the deadline in the end of 2015. I hope this is a true date due its 2016 model year.
