Audi A5 has been recently renovated by part of the of Ingolstadt. The beautiful coupé evolving in a positive way to the level of technology and mechanical – is a completely new car in that aspect – although aesthetically it is very conservative in its changes compared to its predecessor. The same thing happens with the Audi A5 Sportback, which was just renewed by Audi. We already have all the details about the changes and developments of a second generation launched 5 years after its release in the market.
Aesthetic continuity, but neat

of course, the Audi A5 Sportback looks like its predecessor. However, if we look closely, we can appreciate many changes. The calender is more angular, and both optical and front have been redesigned. I especially like the hood, with several nerves that will in my opinion give it a curious touch classic. The fall of the roof is still as pretty as always, and its lagging behind wins a point for modernity thanks to a LED optical systems with a nice interior design, three-dimensional, more sharp in its exterior.
New wheel designs and different colors can bring a touch of freshness to a segment somewhat conservative. While it employs the platform MLB – the modular platform of the Volkswagen Group for applications of longitudinal-engine, shared with the Audi A5 Coupé – your battle increases 2.764 mm to 2.824 mm with respect to this, gaining some more space in your car. Of course, the packages S-line and different aesthetic finishes are still options outstanding new Audi A5 Sportback.
A great technological endowment for a huge interior

interior of the Audi A5 Sportback was one of its weak points traditionally. Not at the level of quality, but at the level of space. Now its trunk grows to 480 litres – has series of electric opening of the gate – and the length of its interior is 17 mm longer. The width to the height of the shoulders in the front region increases by 11 mm, and the space for the knees of the passengers of the rear seats is 24 mm greater. The qualities are the best in the segment, if you are at the level of the Audi A5 Coupe.
Audi virtual cockpit is one of the major innovations of the Audi A5 Sportback. This screen of 12.3-inch replaces the conventional instrumentation. A display up to 8.3 inches presides over the center console, compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. In addition, Audi unveils its phone box on the A5 Sportback, a receptacle in which you can upload wirelessly to our smartphone. You can also equip a system of adaptive cruise control with driving autonomously in traffic jams – less than 60 km/h.
