While not deviating far from the previous design, the new A5 Sportback has a longer wheelbase and a long wraparound bonnet, with a flatter and wider grille. There’s also bigger bulges around the wheel arches, and a spoiler edge at the back. Overall, it looks sleeker and sharper than the first-gen Sportback, and seems to be following a similar pattern of changes to the A5 coupe.
Audi claims the new A5 and S5 Sportback will offer more cabin space than the last version, with shoulder space, rear knee room, and overall space up thanks to a more practical body shape. And there’s more perceived space too, with a new horizontal instrument panel and ambient lighting.
Boot space is increased by 15 litres to 480 litres, and with the rear seats down (which split 40:20:40), that’s up to 1,300 litres.
