After teasing the Audi S5 Sportback at the digital launch of the Audi Q2 in India, the brand was expected to launch the ‘next Audi model’ the S5 Sportback in the Indian market before the end of last year and 2020 being ‘2020’, that did not happen but better late than never and Audi has now officially teased the Audi S5 Sportback through the brand’s social media channels confirming that the Sporty sedan is coming to the Indian market soon.
Powering the sportier version of the Audi A5, the S5 Sportback comes with a 3.0-litre V-6-Cylinder turbo-petrol motor. In the international market, the engine produces 349 Hp of power and 500 Nm of torque. The power unit comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission that transfers power to all-four wheels via a Quattro four-wheel-drive system. This enables the S5 Sportback to sprint from 0-96 kmph (0-60 mph) in just 4.5 seconds. The same engine is likely to power the S5 Sportback in India. The power unit also consists of a Quattro sport rear differential capable of directing the torque to the appropriate wheel depending on demand, enabling the car to carve the corners at higher speeds.
