The German carmaker, Audi, recognised for its magnificent-designed and performance production cars has recently launched its A5 Series in India. The series includes three models – A5 Sportback, A5 Cabriolet, and the S5 Sportback. The Audi A5 Sportback, the A5 Cabriolet, and the S5 Sportback are priced at Rs. 54,02,000, Rs. 67,51,000 and Rs. 70,60,000 respectively.
This range is ‘an apple of the eye’ to the young audience which looks out for neat contour lines on the outside of the chassis, suave interiors, and of course a powerful mill under the hood!
This A5 Sportback exactly serves the same, for it ousts the other luxury sedans by its Coupe-styled body which will hike the demand for it exponentially.
Talking about the silhouette, the company has consumed a lot of sand from the hourglass for the designing of all the three models where the wide single-frame grille draws most of the attention… Also, the contouring lines on the bonnet and on the sides, a slopy roof, large airy sunroof, dual-barrel led headlamps and split tail lamps make the cars stand out of the fleet of elegant luxury sedans.
The cabin brushed neatly with judicious use of black-wood trim in the A5 Sportback and Cabriolet, and faux aluminium in the S5 Sportback. The Dash houses a three-spoke steering wheel and an MMI touch infotainment system and Audi’s smartphone interface.
Under the hood, the A5 Sportback and the A5 Cabriolet share the same 2.0-litre diesel mill which puts out a total power of 188 bhp and 400 Nm of peak torque. However, only the A5 Cabriolet and the S5 Sportback come with the Audi Quattro all-wheel-drive system and is missed out on the A5 Sportback both to reduce price and unnecessary weight. The A5 Sportback sprints from 0-100 kmph in just 7.9 seconds and reckons a top speed of 235 kmph. The A5 Cabrio reaches a top speed of 235 kmph and climbs the 0-100 kmph bracket in 7.8 seconds.
On the contrary, the S5 Sportback is the only one among the three to sport a petrol engine which is a 3.0 litre V6 turbo-charged mill and marks a maximum power of 349 bhp and peak torque of 500 Nm. It sprints from 0-100 kmph in just 4.7 seconds and tops to 250 kmph.
All the three cars would be a good proposition to invest in for their list of features and design, all of that included in a pocket-friendly pricing bracket!
