Audi A5 Sportback Spied During California Photo Shoot

Audi has yet to confirm if the A5 Sportback model will make it to North America, but the German automaker did bring at least one of the upcoming cars over for a photo shoot. These pictures, snapped a student at the University of California San Diego, show a completely undisguised A5 Sportback during a photo shoot on the campus. And we have to say it looks pretty good.

Audi has only released one teaser image of the car and so these are the first full photos available.

Information on the A5 Sportback is still limited but we do know that it will be offered with five different engines in Europe. The gasoline engines are, as expected, the 2.0 TFSI engine making 211hp and 258 ft-lbs of torque and the 3.2-liter V6 with 265hp. As for the diesels, they include the 2.0 TDI with 170 and 258 ft-lbs of torque, the 2.7 TDI with 190hp and 295 ft-lbs of torque and a 3.0-liter V6 TDI with 240hp and a massive 369 ft-lbs of torque.

As for cargo capacity, Audi says the new model has 17 cubic feet of cargo space (almost the same as the A4 Avant), and 34.6 cu.-ft. with the rear seats folded flat.

The A5 Sportback goes on sale this September in Europe and an S5 model with Audi’s new supercharged 3.0-liter V6 is expected to follow.
