AUDI A5 Sportback review

NGC verdict 02.08.2017

Four-door coupes are a bit of a strange idea. The thought process behind turning a four-door saloon into a less practical but more stylish car I can see - it appeals to sportier car buyers, those not burdened by practical considerations. Turning said two-door coupe back into a saloon-sized model, but not actually into a saloon strikes me a rather odd. But what do I know? Four-door coupes like the Audi A5 Sportback tested sell in good numbers, and we've tested the latest iteration.
