a5-1

This is all that was shown as a teaser to the upcoming Audi A5 sportback concept, where it should be used to compete with the BMW 5 Series GT featured earlier here.

 

There are a few engine variants, 2 petrol and 3 diesel.

Petrol

2.0 TFSI Quattro outputs 211hp and 350Nm of torque.

3.2 V6 Quattro generates 265 hp

 

Diesel

2.0 TDI with 170 hp and 350Nm of torque.

2.7 TDI with 190 hp and 400Nm of torque.

3.0 V6 TDI with 240 hp and 500Nm of torque.

Addition to the Q5, there is a new tech from Audi called the Drive Select Dynamic driving system that lets you choose between 3 modes of driving, where it will affect the throttle response and shifting characteristics of the car.

 

So i am guessing that this is really a new segment that the giants are trying to tap into, with Audi and BMW already in the game. wondering what will Mercedes come out with ?

This is getting more interesting :p
