It's been seven years since the birth of the A5 Sportback and we finally see the new version of the car. What you're seeing is the second generation of the A5 and we've already caught it testing on Indian soil, so, yes, it's part of Audi's product line-up for India and we'll see it coming here soon. The company has finally revealed the car much ahead of its Paris Motorshow debut and it looks great, doesn't it?

The second generation of the five-door coupe features a stretched wheelbase, short overhangs, wraparound domed hood, and a single frame grille. The grille is flatter and wider than its predecessor and this brings out the character of the car.

The shoulder line is deeply accentuated with a protruding double crease traveling just above the door handles. The rear is shapely with the focal point being the arched luggage lid and it comes with a spoiler edge which according to the folks at Audi 'exhibits horizontal, equally highly precise styling'.

It's the cabin of the Audi A5 Sportback that we see a huge change but this is only if you compare it to its predecessor. We think that the cabin is a familiar one and carried over from the new A4 sedan, however, the new A5 has grown and how. It's now longer by 17mm, while driver and passenger's shoulder room is up 11 mm. Rear knee room has also been increased by 24mm more while the wheelbase stands at 2,824mm. As you can see the instrument panel is horizontal which also adds to the notion of increased space. There's also a 480-litre boot space which is more than what the Coupe offered (465 litres)

Obviously, the g-tron will not come to India but having driven the S5 in India, we know what the car is capable of and can't wait to see the car on Indian soil.
