The Audi Sportback is in essence a four door coupe.
The Audi Sportback which was revealed at the 2009 Detroit Motor Show is a four door coupe concept created to preview an upcoming luxury model designed to compete with the Mercedes-Benz CLS and even the Porsche Panamera.

The Audi Sportback is a based on a versatile vehicle platform Audi calls the Longitudinal Build Kit (LBK). This system is adjustable for length, width and height and allows a number of different models to be easily built from one base platform therefore reducing cost and development time.

The styling of the Audi Sportback displays a number of typical Audi traits including the jewel-like LED headlights, and large single, central grille. The profile and rear views are less obviously Audi, although the strong shoulder line is a bit of a giveaway. At the rear the slit-like taillights, triangular rear quarter lights, and sloping rear panel could easily be mistaken for belonging to either Aston Martin or Lamborghini.

The interior design of the Audi Sportback is simple and elegant at the same time. The large glass roof highlights the width and feeling of spaciousness. In the driver-oriented cockpit, the air vents, instrument cluster and retracting MMI monitor are outlined by a fine aluminum border.

The flat display of the multimedia system is a retractable system in the Sportback concept. When the ignition is activated, it extends horizontally from a slot above the central air register before moving in an elegant arc into a vertical, easy-to-read position.

Power for the Audi Sportback is provided by a clean burning 3.0-liter V6 TDI which almost completely eliminates nitrogen oxides. This engine already meets the emissions limits of all 50 U.S. states and the EU6 standard scheduled to take effect in 2014.

UPDATE - In July 2010 the Audi A7 Sportback was unveiled. This is the production version of the Sportback concept.
