Audi A5 Sportback, still a road test for the new generation. Spy photos

Audi development work continues of the new A5 Sportback. The 4-ring manufacturer moved the measurements to southern Europe where the forklift was blocked on the road. The German manufacturer has very ambitious plans for the electrification of its range. As we know, from 2026 it will launch new electric models on the market. However, this does not mean that he has forgotten about his internal combustion engines.

Star car spy photos it still has a film on the body designed to hide the details of the new design. In any case, under the camouflage, the car seems to present its definitive forms. Looking closely at the picture, we can see how the front shows a different similarity with that of the new generation of Audi A4 we’ve seen the protagonist in several spy photos. In this regard, we remind you that the house of ring 4 has decided review the naming strategy. Even numbers will be used for electric vehicles, while odd numbers will be used for internal combustion vehicles.

This means that the new The Audi A4 will become the Audi A5. Since so far spy shots have only shown the Avant model of the new A4/A5, it is possible that the Sportback could replace the sedan. However, these are just thoughts.

Going back to the car shown in the spy shots, we can also see the typical Audi Sportback roofline. The pictures do not show the interior. However, the first images of the new Audi A4/A5 Avant allowed us to see a minimalistic interior, with fewer physical controls and larger screens for the instrument and infotainment system.

As for the engines that we will find under the hood of the new Audi A5 Sportback, the manufacturer should offer Mild Hybrid and Plug-in units. There is no exact launch date for the new A5 yet. However, delivery is expected later this year.
