Since 2009, Audi has sold a five-door version of the A5 called the A5 Sportback in a number of countries except the U.S. That will be changing in the near future.
“I feel confident that there will be another variant of the A5 that will be a real home run. There’s one we don’t have,” Audi of America president Scott Keogh told Automotive News at the media launch of the new A4.
While Keogh didn't mention the Sportback by name, it is the only A5 variant that hasn't come to the U.S.
Automotive News says the next-generation A5 is due sometime in the second quarter of 2017. Expect a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder with 252 horsepower and the choice of either front or all-wheel drive to be on offer at launch.
