Audi A5 Sportback 2024

The new Audi A5 Sportback model 2024 was first seen on the streets in test. See below what Giro dos Motores has brought you!

After months of spy photos depicting the new Audi A4 Avant, our spies have finally managed to spot its sleeker sibling in this lineup.

No, we are not talking about the A4 Sedan, but the Audi A5 Sportback.

The traditional sedan has yet to make an appearance, thus fueling rumors about the German luxury brand potentially scrapping the conventional body style and keeping just the liftback for the next generation.

As expected, the front half of the car will be virtually identical to the A4 Avant, which has been officially confirmed to transition into the Audi A5 designation.

The gently sloping rear pillar and tailgate indicate that we're actually looking at the A5 Sportback rather than an A5 Sedan.

Not only does it have all the production body panels in place, but the final headlights and taillights as well.

It's unclear whether Audi will choose to introduce the Sportback first or not, but logic tells us that the more practical Avant will come a little later than this car.

Our spies caught the prototype from afar and therefore could not peer into the cockpit.

However, an Audi A5 Avant was seen inside a few months ago.

It had even larger tablet-like infotainment compared to the previous model, while the fully digital instrument cluster was no longer integrated into the dash.

Considerably fewer physical controls are expected on a streamlined dashboard, as with many recent Volkswagen Group products.

Riding on an evolution of the MLB platform, this will be the last generation of the A5 Sportback to still offer combustion engines.

Audi will launch its final ICE-powered vehicles in 2025, with new products arriving from 2026 to be sold as pure EVs.

By 2023, the Four Rings hope to halt sales of ICE-powered vehicles, except in China, where production may continue for a while depending on local demand.

The Audi A5 Avant and Audi A5 Sportback will be available with a range of petrol and diesel mild hybrid engines designed to meet future Euro 7 emissions regulations.

Plug-in hybrid power is also in the works, but EV derivatives are not planned. Instead, the Audi is planning an E-Tron model with the A4 badge on a dedicated platform for electric cars.

An identical strategy will apply to the combustion-engined A6 models, as they will all eventually be given the A7 moniker, leaving room in the lineup for a zero-emissions A6.

Before transforming all cars into EVs, Audi promised to launch another round of S and RS cars, so that there are high-performance derivatives for the A5 family.
