The Audi A5 Sportback is a four-door version of the Audi A5 coupe. The model is designed to compete directly with the likes of BMW's 5 Series Gran Turismo in the new midsize four-door coupe market. One obvious area in which the A5 Sportback is sure to gather more praise over the Gran Turismo is in the looks department.

The A5 Sportback is 36 millimeters (1.42 in) lower than the A4 Sedan and incorporates a short front overhang, long wheelbase, wide track and four frameless doors.

The interior of the A5 Sportback offers four seat placements which a decent amount of room for all the passengers. The luggage compartment hatch is integrated into the long, tapered tail end with the flat C pillars. The luggage compartment volume of 480 liters (16.95 cu ft) nearly matches that of the A4 Avant and increases to 980 liters (34.61 cu ft) with the rear seats folded down.

The Audi A5 Sportback is offered with six different engines. Including:
- 2.0 litre TFSI in either 180 or 211 hp versions
- 3.2 litre TFSI V6 with 265 hp
- 2.0 litre TDI with 170 hp (with start-stop system)
- 2.7 litre TDI developing 190 hp
- 3.0 litre TDI with 240 hp
The petrol engines along with the most powerful diesel engine use Audi's quattro AWD system while the 3.2 litre V6 and 3.0 litre TDI are optionally available with the newly developed sport differential, which variably distributes power between the rear wheels and provides even greater dynamics and safety. The two TDI models with front-wheel drive – the 2.0 TDI and 2.7 TDI – and the 2.0 TFSI (132 kW / 180 hp) benefit from another Audi innovation: The ESP stabilization program with electronic front differential lock increases agility and prevents understeer.

The A5 Sportback also features the Audi drive select vehicle dynamics system, which enables the driver to modify the throttle response, the shifting points of the seven-speed S tronic, and the boost provided by the servotronic steering system, which comes standard (from power outputs of 140 kW (190 hp) upwards). The system is offered as a modular package with at least one of the following three options: sport differential, adaptive shock absorber control or dynamic steering with variable boost.
