The Audi A5 sportback is finally here

Its finally here. The car that Audi claims is three cars in one has been launched here in Singapore. We have already been accustomed to the coupe version of the A5 which is by far, one of the most stunning cars Audi has ever come up with in my opinion, and now there's the 4 door saloon version for people who want to buy this car with more of their heads than their hearts.

Its called the Sportback simply because it looks sportier and more aggressive than the A4 which it is based on. Sportier it is as its ground clearance is 36mm lower and two engines will be available; the mighty 3.2-litre FSI V6 which is home to 265 horses and a 2.0 litre one which I think will be rather pointless as the car weighs roughly 1.6 tonnes, with a 2.0 litre under the bonnet and 211bhp, I think you're better off with the 3.2 litre if money isn't and issue.

The biggest difference between the 2 variants is that the 3.2 litre comes with a Sport differential which distributes the torque from the engine to the rear wheels. However, the stuff that comes as standard across both variants include Audi's drive select, dynamic steering and 3 zone air conditioning. Getting the 3.2 litre top of the range model will also allow you to enjoy the S-line body kit, a pimped out sound system from Bang & Olufsen and adaptive headlights.

The price of the 3.2-litre variant is just over 200k at $201,800 while the 2.0-litre version can be yours at $174,500. Both set at rather competitive prices as compared to the Mercedes E class Coupe and the BMW 3 Series coupe and convertible. So what would it be? Choosing the Sportback is the practical choice while the Coupe is for the youthful soul that resonates from within, nevertheless, this is a great car to own.
