Audi A5 Sportback: A Sports and Luxury Car In One

One can get the A4 as a saloon or sedan and also an estate or what we call a wagon car. Both the second and third generation cars which are the B6 and B7 had one convertible version. The B8 convertible version became a part of the Audi A 5 later on. This was done since Audi went back into concentrating on the compact executive coupe segment.

The Audi B7 A4 Quattro

The year 2009 saw the HS 650 Audi B7 A4 quattro being heralded as the fastest bio-gas powered car with a speed of 364.6 km/h (226.6 mph) at the Papenburg test track. The vehicle had a 3.0 L twin-turbo V6 engine, with electronically limited 700 PS (515kW; 690 bhp) rating.

The Audi A5 Sportback: A Combination Sedan Of The A4 And A5

The Audi A5 Sportback contains a tapering, long roofline and 4 frameless doors, providing it a ‘sedan like’ look. Whereas it contributes to a number of exterior signs with the A5 sedan, the Audi A5 Sportback’s interior is identical to the A4 car; however all the models of the A5 have similar platforms like the A4, the Audi A5 Sportback is nearer to the A4 on the basis of the design than the other A5’s family. The Audi A5 Sportback has been explained as ‘a car with the taillights of the Audi A5 sedan and with the front–end side that includes a similar S-line appearance but with the presence of the base of the wheels of the Audi A4’ among the Audi A5 Sportback placed extra like the ‘designer’s coupe’ as relative to the more traditional Audi A4 coupe.
