After introducing the A5 and S5 Sportback models earlier this month, Audi has unveiled them in the flesh at the 2016 Paris Motor Show.
The Audi S5 Sportback features a 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine, providing 354 horsepower and 396 pound-feet of torque. The engine is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission and allows it to go zero-to-62 mph [0-100 km/h] in 4.7 seconds while sporting a top speed of 155 mph [250 km/h].
Both the Audi A5 and S5 Sportback models offer the design lines of the Coupe but the added convenience of having four doors. It’s essentially Audi’s answer to BMW’s 4 Series Gran Coupe.

Compared to the last Sportback model, this generation added a five-link suspension system and the German automaker’s new Quattro Ultra all-wheel-drive system.
It’s still unclear whether the A5 and S5 Sportback will be making it to the U.S., as Audi claims it currently has not made a decision on the matter just yet.
