Want a sub-4 second 0-100-kph accelerating four-door sedan that packs 444 bhp from its 2.9-litre bi-turbo V6 engine? Here’s the all-new Audi RS5 Sportback for you in Sonoma Green! It can be all yours for Rs 1.04 crore, ex-showroom (introductory price).
Previously, Audi India only had the two-door RS5 Coupe variant. And it was pretty difficult to cram yourself behind in the rear seats. But, with the Sportback variant, things are going to be far more practical and still quick.
Inside, the tech bits are similar to the ones seen on the RS7 Sportback and not much has changed. The updated Audi Virtual Cockpit now comes with a new ‘hockey stick’ styled rev counter. By techier, we mean, the RS5’s feeding you with information like engine temperature, longitudinal and lateral acceleration, tyre temperatures and tyre pressures, and the quattro sport differential operating status. Moving on to the comfier bits then, the RS5 Sportback gets massage function its front sport seats, 3-zone climate control, cruise control, among other things. Oh, and if for whatever reason you don’t dig the RS5 Sportback in this Sonoma Green then you have seven other colour options to choose from namely: Nardo Gray, Turbo Blue, Tango Red, Mythos Black, Glacier White, Navarra Blue and Daytona Grey.
We’re waiting eagerly to get our hands on the Audi RS5 Sportback and see how the RS modes and RS suspension perform on our roads. Also, pitch it against a certain AMG (Mercedes-AMG E 53) that’s priced a couple of lakhs cheaper than the RS5 Sportback here. Stay tuned!
