The new four-door coupe from the Ingolstadt carmaker will hit showrooms later this year, in September and it will be available for ordering with an entry price of 36,050 Euros for the 2.0 TDI version. According to Audi, the BMW 5 Series GT competitior will also get a version with an even more attractive price in the middle of 2010.
The other engines which will be available at launch will be two more diesels and two gasoline engines. The diesels are the 2.7 TDI with 140 kW (190 hp) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft), and the three-liter V6 TDI with 176 kW (240 hp) plus an enormous 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of maximum torque and quattro all-wheel drive, while the petrol units are the 2.0 TFSI quattro with an output of 155 kW (211 hp) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque and the 3.2-liter V6 quattro generating 195 kW (265 hp), both equipped with the Audi valvelift system.
Other features the new Audi A5 Sportback will boast are the newly developed ESP control with electronic differential lock on the front axle and the Audi drive select dynamic driving system that allows the driver to choose between three different modes which influences the throttle response characteristics, the shift points for the seven-speed S tronic or multitronic transmissions, and supports the servotronic steering (if the vehicle is equipped with the MMI operating system, a fourth, freely programmable level is also available).
Also, after the jump, there’s a cool video released by Audi, showing Wolfgang Egger, Head of Audi group design, sketching the A5 Sportback concept. Enjoy!
