If you’ve driven the Audi A5, then there’s not much more to say about this Sportback. The look says it all. The Audi A5 is a series of compact executive cars produced by the German automobile manufacturer Audi since March 2007.

The good news for Pakistani Audi fans is that the luxury car maker company Audi has finally released the A5 Sportback in Pakistan.

Inside and out, the all-new design of the 2018 A5 Sportback adds a sporty look to the iconic styling of the A5 range. From the flat, flowing roof line with standard panoramic sunroof to the luxurious materials that adorn the interior, this is an A5 that’s difficult for others to keep up with.

The Audi A5 2018 Sportback comes in 3 different frills in the international market.

• Audi A5 Sportback SE
• Audi A5 Sportback Sport
• Audi A5 Sportback S Line

Apart from the diesel-only SE model, Audi has launched the other A5 Sportback models in Pakistan.
As one would expect, a luxury car comes with top of the line features and specifications with a price tag to match.

The Audi A5 Sportback has a starting price of Rs. 6.85 million in Pakistan.
