Audi A5 Sportback

Audi has officially released details on the 2010 A5 Sportback, its upcoming five-door sport hatch. Described quite poignantly as combining “the emotion and elegance of a coupe, the comfort of a sedan and the practicality of a station wagon”, the Sportback joins A5 siblings the Coupe and Cabriolet. Audi boasts that the A5 features a lower, sportier profile than the A4 sedan while still maintaining generous interior space that provides plenty of room for passengers and storage.  Six different  fuel-injected engines will be available to buyers, three gas and three diesel. The top engines will power quattro all-wheel drive and three drivetrain variations will be available depending on engine: manual, multi-tronic or seven speed S tronic. Three more engine choices will be added in 2010. Unfortunately, none of it will be available outside of Europe. [via Auto Blog]
