OFFICIAL! - Audi presents the first five-door coupe of the world, the new A5 Sportback

Audi will celebrate its centennial in 2009 and it is expected to present a lot of new products until the end of the year. R8 Roadster, A7 and, until these two machines decide to show up, the new A5 Sportback, the first five-door coupe of the world.

Although it looks like a coupe, it would be more accurate to call the A5 Sportback as a fastback, due to its rear door, but the fact is a fastback usually does not have such an elegant shape.

With prices that start at 33,650 euros, it has a 480 l luggage compartment and six engine options, three petrol units and three diesel powerplants. The petrol options are two 2-liter four-cylinder TFSI with 180 bhp (132 kW) and 211 bhp (155 kW) and a 3.2-liter V6 with 265 bhp (195 kW). As for the diesel units, there is a 2-litre four cylinder engine that generates 170 bhp (125 kW) and two V6 units, the first a 2.7-litre able to generate 190 bhp (140 kW) and the second a 3-litre that pumps out 240 bhp (176 kW).

The new A5 Sportback is 4.71 m long, 1.85 m wide and 1.39 m tall, with a wheelbase of 2.81 m. Tomorrow Audi will present another new car. We would bet on the R8 Roadster. Let's see if we are right.
