Jack Ingram Audi reviews 2018 Audi A5 Sportback

Audi’s A5 is offered in a few different models including a Coupe, Cabriolet, and a Sportback. The Sportback is similar to a sedan but has a fastback like roofline that gives it a sportier look than most sedans.

 The Audi A5 Sportback is very new to America, with the 2018 model being its first appearance. It hit the ground running with impressive performance, features, and cargo space that put it in a league of its own when it came to competition. With Audi’s attention to detail and history or integrating the latest and greatest technology and features in their vehicles, it is no surprise that the 2018 A5 Sportback is as popular as it is.


The Audi A5 Sportback’s drivetrain is not something you will want to underestimate as the 2.0L turbocharged 4 cylinder motor puts out 252 horsepower with a 5.0 0-60 time. The Audi A5 features paddle shifters to allow for manually shifting and it will shift for itself when in manual mode to prevent harm to the engine or transmission. You will also get the feature of auto start/stop to allow for optimum fuel efficiency. This allows for a 24 miles per gallon city and 34 miles per gallon highway fuel economy. This allows for about 520 miles of driving range on the highway on a single tank.


Audi has always paid close attention to how their cars look and what kind of first impression they make on others, The A5 is no exception with the Sportback model giving a standout shape as it is. Couple this with the 18” wheels, dual chrome exhaust tips, and sequential tail lights and you have got an exterior that is sure to make a statement. You will also enjoy a panoramic sunroof and a power operated liftgate as well.


While we could go all day about the features on the interior, we will hit some of the most noticeable and most popular features on the A8. These features include Valetta leather seats, heated 18 way power comfort front seats, Nappa Leather accent package, four spoke multifunction steering wheel, and dark brown walnut natural wood/dark brushed matte aluminum accents.

A leather gripped gear selector adds a custom touch to the centerpiece of your interior.
