The new Audi A5 Sportback, has been introduced to Oman as the third member of the A5 model family, featuring an emotion-packed design, high everyday practicality, a sporty character and engines that are as efficient as they are powerful. Audi is setting new trends in design with the A5 Sportback. The five-door coupe is defined by elegant lines. It is 36 millimeters lower than the A4 Sedan; with its short front overhang, long wheelbase, wide track and the four frameless doors with their slender window lines, it is the very picture of sporty elegance.
The interior is spacious, offering uncompromising comfort in all four seats. The large luggage compartment hatch is harmoniously integrated into the long, tapered tail end with the flat C pillars; the spoiler lip underscores the tension-filled character. The luggage compartment volume of 480 liters nearly matches that of the A4 Avant and increases to 980 liters with the rear seats folded down.
The A5 Sportback follows the consistent path of innovative technologies at Audi when it comes to the drivetrain. The launch engine for the Middle East will be a 211 bhp 2.0 TFSI, which delivers its power to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system. Like all other models it is equipped with a recuperation system that recovers energy during braking and deceleration and stores it temporarily in the battery.
James Oliver, General Manager of Wattayah Motors in Oman, said:
"We are delighted to be able to end the year with the launch of the new Audi A5 Sportback and Cabriolet- a fantastic addition to the Audi family of cars that is ideal for the typical sports fanatic or the business executive who wants luxury, comfort and power at a highly competitive price."
