Audi plots crossover alternatives

Audi has now released their A5 models to sell in dealerships. Their intent is to target a demographic looking for a larger trunk space without having to upgrade to a larger vehicle, one has to wonder if that is exactly what will ensure their sales as the sales start to add up in the upcoming months.

Key Takeaways:

  • Audi’s new A5 Sportback and S5 Sportback are sedan customers who want more rear space for passengers and cargo but aren’t ready for a crossover or SUV.
  • The added space comes from an unusual design decision. Audi used the wheelbase of its redesigned A4 “to give it additional rear seat legroom and cargo space.”
  • The Sportback has enough room to carry a mountain bike with the lid closed.

“Audi’s new A5 Sportback and S5 Sportback, arriving in dealerships now, are partly intended as a middle ground for sedan customers who want more rear space for passengers and cargo but aren’t ready for a crossover or SUV.”
