2018 Audi A5 Sportback Review, Release Date, Price and Specs
For some big automakers, releasing a brand new model is a must and it is crucial for their market position. Once they delayed, their position on the market might go lower because the competitors are quite a lot. For example, Audi has to work more to release their new 2018 Audi A5 Sportback. They also work for S5 and both of the cars have a similar look to their previous models. But, of course they develop it with some enhancements to give.
Audi has an excellent strategy. They think that the best way to launch the new 2018 Audi A5 Sportback is by keeping its look from the previous model. It is a modern car with superior technology and style that seems copied from the predecessor. It will go with the new MLB Evo platform to make it lighter than before so that it has better performance. This is a significant change they can do to make it great, thanks to the additional semi-autonomous driving functions so it has better precision in steering as well as movement. We think that it is one of the great cars with the best handling in its segment.
The interior design is still similar to the previous model. You wouldn’t see any whole new style to provide. The dashboard has a futuristic look with the spacious rear-seat room. It has a large trunk and it might borrow some parts in A4 to give better utility for 2018 Audi A5 Sportback.
