Audi A5 Sportback: appearance, performance and utility

It’s a question he asks me all the time. What is the best car on the market?

Of course, there is no direct answer. It all depends on the type of vehicle you need. But if it is pressed today, I will say that for me there is one design above all others.

I’m talking about the hatchback sedan, a compact four-door with a coupe-like roofline and a large tailgate or hatch. This is the kind of car that the 2018 Audi A5 Sportback embodies.

Note that Audi and others in this category all reject the hatchback descriptor – apparently due to low market, utilitarian implications – in favor of the term sportback.

There are other competitors in the category, not least the Audi A7, which is similar in design to the A5 but is larger and more luxurious. Also worth noting are the 2018 Kia Stinger and 2018 Buick Regal GS Sportback, both of which mirror the Audi formula.
