Audi has come
at the Geneva motor show 2017 loaded with new features. In the edition of
this year the event has been one in which greater amount of firsts has
given to know the German brand of the four rings. Focusing our attention

Audi A5 Sportback g-tron 2017

The new Audi A5 Sportback g-tron presented at the Geneva Auto show in march 2017.

on the one hand we have the Audi RS 5 Coupe 2017, the option top of range with its 450 HP, while on the other, lies one of the versions more efficient and eco-friendly that will be made available, the Audi A5 Sportback g-tron 2017. And the last we discuss in this article. When we presented the new generation of the Audi A5 Sportback has already announced that there would be a version CNG able to run on both gasoline and compressed natural gas (also called natural gas for vehicles). It will be placed as the third model from Audi with this type of mechanics.

Aesthetically few differences we can discuss with respect to the Audi A5 Sportback 2017 with an engine that uses only conventional fuel. Obviously makes act of presence for the denomination g-tron already makes it clear to us that we are in a fuel-efficient vehicle. And the same thing happens at the level of the equipment or the technological equipment. It is for this reason that we must focus exclusively on what’s under its bonnet.

The new Audi A5 Sportback g-tron is powered by a engine 2.0-liter TFSI with 170 HP and 270 Nm of maximum torque, combined with a change S tronic dual-clutch seven-speed, allows the German model to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.5 seconds. On the other hand, fixed CO2 emissions of 100 g/km

The new Audi A5 Sportback g-tron 2017 can operate with gasoline or compressed natural gas (CNG).

In a driving cycle standard, the A5 Sportback g-tron consumes less than 4 kilograms of gas per 100 kilometers tours. Therefore, and in cycle NEDC, has a range of up to 500 kilometers exclusively using this alternative fuel. Once the pressure in the tank of compressed natural gas falls below about 10 bars, approximately 0.6 kilograms, automatically the motor starts to operate with gasoline. This allows you to enjoy a autonomy additional 450 kilometres.

The tanks of compressed natural gas are found beneath the back structure and allow you to store 19 kilograms at a pressure of 200 bars. Are reinforced with carbon fiber and glass fiber to ensure that they are resistant and very light. It has also been used epoxy resin to bond all of these materials.

For the moment, Audi has not revealed the price that will have the new Audi A5 Sportback g-tron, although their marketing will begin shortly. We will have to wait to get the rest of the details about this release.
