The German luxury car maker Audi has released the A5 Sportback in Pakistan. The 2018 Audi A5 Sportback comes in 3 different trims in the international market:
- Audi A5 Sportback SE
- Audi A5 Sportback Sport
- Audi A5 Sportback S Line
Apart from the diesel-only SE model, Audi has launched the other A5 Sportsback models in Pakistan.
As one would expect, a luxury car comes with top of the line features and specifications with a price tag to match.
The Audi A5 Sportback has a starting price of Rs. 6.85 million in Pakistan.
The A5 Sportback features trim lines running down the hood of the car which gives the vehicle a “mean” sporty look. The horizontal front grille with the daytime running lights add to that persona giving it a mix of class and sporty demeanor. Bi-Xenon low beam Bi-Xenon high beam headlights are featured here with ellipsoidal lenses.
The rearview mirrors include LED indicators.
Audi rarely changes the back of the car too much and the same holds true for the A5 Sportback. The back features the classic Audi look with sweeping LED lights similar to the A4 and S4 line.
It may seem overwhelming at first but you’ll notice that the Sportback’s dashboard doesn’t have too many controls. The three spoke steering wheel includes media and other controls such as the windscreen wipers, rearview mirror controls etc.
You can get the optional virtual cockpit in the Sportback for additional price.
The infotainment system supports both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The 7.0 inch LCD display can be used for regular bluetooth audio/video playback as well, includes SatNav.
A5 Sportback comes with a Bang & Olufsen speaker system with 10 speakers including a subwoofer, offering unprecedented audio quality.
Drive select lets you choose between different engine, suspension and steering settings. You can opt for a smoother, comfier ride or a sportier, rougher drivetrain.
The leather seats are heated and electrically adjustable. A sun roof is also included by default.
There’s a lot to like about that huge trunk space. You get 480 litres of boot space which means you can easily pack up for a week long family trip to the northern areas or some place else.
