The specification listed for this vehicle was standard when purchased new. The actual specification may vary, for confirmation, please contact our sales department.
A 480-litre boot extendable to 980-litres sounds like the specification of an estate but it's Audi's A5 Sportback. Part estate, part coupe, the car aims to increase the chances of there being an Audi that's perfectly suited to your needs. With noble intentions like that, it would be churlish to criticise, particularly when confronted by the affordable running costs of the improved 2.0 TDI version we're looking at here.
One day soon, we'll all just have to give up trying to classify cars. It's great to be able to walk into a showroom or search the internet knowing that you want to buy a supermini, a family hatchback or a roadster but those days could be coming to an end. The culprit is the niche market. It's become relatively inexpensive for manufacturers to produce numerous vehicles based on the same platform, giving buyers an unprecedented degree of choice between assorted niche products and blurring the boundaries between established market sectors in the process. Audi is a leading culprit, its model range seemingly expanding on a weekly basis. The German marque can now offer you an A4 saloon, A4 estate or an SUV-style A4 Allroad as well as an A5 coupe, A5 cabriolet or the A5 Sportback featured here. All are roughly equivalent in size and share numerous components, so choosing between them can present problems. Whichever you choose though, you'll get an efficient set of wheels, especially in the case of the improved 2.0 TDI diesel A5 Sportback we look at here.
The engine range offered in this improved Sportback will present no surprises to anyone familiar with the A4 or A5 model ranges. The most popular unit is likely to be the one we're looking at here, the 2.0 TDI, offered either with or without quattro 4WD in 190PS guise. There is also a 136PS ultra variant on offer if running costs are a great priority. Either way, you get a hefty slug of torque between 320 and 380Nm. This 2.0 TDI unit sits below a 245PS 3.0TDI alternative at the pricier end of the range. Drive this latest 2.0 TDI model back to back with, say, an old direct injection A4 2.0 TDI and the greater pulling power is immediately apparent, as is this powerplant's superior refinement thanks to the more modern common rail technology used. Common-rail injection engines fire fuel into each cylinder from a shared (common) pipe (rail). The pipe is pressurised at 1,800bar which allows extremely fine atomisation of the fuel and a highly efficient combustion process. The injectors in Audi's TDI unit are capable of injecting fuel up to five times per combustion cycle at precisely controlled quantities so exactly the right amount of fuel is burned to optimise performance. If you're wondering how this affects you as the driver, it means a very smooth delivery of power without the sudden lunge of torque that can afflict the less sophisticated oil-burners. Rest to sixty in a 190PS 2.0 TDI occupies just 7.8s on the way to 148mph.
So what's the point of the A5 Sportback? It's a good question but the answer was obviously deemed relevant enough at Audi for the marque to build the first compact executive hatchback. What's on offer here is, depending on your point of view, an A5 coupe with the same sleek looks but more practicality. Or an A4 Avant estate with similar practicality levels but sportier looks. The car does look good with its long arching roofline and neatly integrated tail. Elsewhere the design carries the usual Audi styling cues from the single frame grille to the LED lights and the sharp creases down the flanks. The Sportback does indeed have nearly as much load space inside as the A4 Avant with a 480-litre load volume that can be extended up to 980 litres by lowering the rear seat backs. This is helped in part by a body that's extended by 8cm over the estate car. The four-door design provides more convenient access to the rear seats compared to the A5 coupe. Audi also claims that head and legroom for rear seat passengers is comparable to that in the A4 saloon, despite the lower roof of the A5 Sportback model. And you can specify a rear bench that can take three rather than just two occupants: good news for families.
You'll probably end up paying somewhere in the £30,000 to £35,000 bracket for your A5 Sportback 2.0 TDI, the the quattro version only available in top 190PS guise. For some reason, Audi has decided that the Sportback A5 should be priced below its Coupe stablemate, despite its extra doors, but it's still a hefty slug more than a comparable A4 saloon. Audi says that this car doesn't have any immediate rivals but you might beg to differ on that. If you don't need the fifth door, pricier versions of Volkswagen's CC offer the same kind of thing but don't have the same badge equity. If you don't care about that, one of the more powerful fully kitted-out Vauxhall Insignia five-door models looks just as 'coupe-like' to our eyes.
If you really want to maximise the potential for low running costs in your A5 Sportback, then your dealer is likely to point you towards the entry-level 2.0 TDI ultra diesel variant. Offered with 136PS, this variant puts out 109g/km of CO2 and manages 67.3mpg on the combined cycle. Even an ordinary 190PS 2.0 TDI manages 61.4mpg and 119g/km, though if you order it with quattro 4WD, those returns take quite a hit, falling to 57.6mpg and 128g/km.

PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) a simple cost effective way to buy your new or nearly new
You choose the car, the deposit, how long you want the contract to run for and the mileage you intend to do. You will then receive a quote for fixed cost motoring for the length of the contract. At the end of the contract you have a choice to either buy the car outright for an agreed lump sum (the GFV or final balloon payment), or hand the vehicle back to the lender.
Hire Purchase allows you to take ownership of a car once all payments are made.
This is one of the most popular methods to buy a new vehicle. You pay an initial deposit, then pay off the balance in monthly payments over an agreed period of time, when the payments are complete the car is yours.
One of the main benefits with Hire Purchase is the ability to buy a high value vehicle on
Hire Purchase allows you to tailor your finance package as deposit, length of time and monthly payments are all flexible.
Personal contract hire is very similar to normal contract hire, but is exclusively for
private individuals. This
is one of the most common form of leasing.
With a personal contract hire agreement you take control of a car for a contractual period – usually referred to as the ‘lease period’. You will make fixed monthly payments for the duration of the contract – when the contract expires you will simply return the car and take out a new personal contract hire lease. PCH means you never have to worry about resale values of your car.
