In Audi talk, ‘Sportback’ used to be synonymous with’ hatchback.’ The name has been used on the A3 for years. And was modified to cover the sportier-looking models of the Q3 and E-Tron last fall.
New, the fourth model to embrace the nameplate will be the Audi Q5. As the carmaker revealed only a few days ago. So, which has already been put into practice by Kolesa.
Taking the Q5 second generation as a starting point, the Q5 Sportback sports a similar front end, with a revised bumper and minor improvements. The roofline is further sloping behind the B-pillars, finishing with a tailgate-mounted bumper. While the taillights are joined together by a light band.
Apart from cosmetic changes, the Q5 Sportback uses the same underpinnings as the stock edition of the luxury compact SUV. The MLB Evo platform also associated with the more luxurious models of Porsche, Macan and the larger Q7, which allows a range of different powertrains.
It is also likely to include most or all of the new Q5 engines. Including 2.0-liter TFSI and TDI petrol and diesel engines, and the PHEV variant. The S models presumably expected as we speak of 3.0-liter TFSI V6 gasoline and 3.0-liter TDI V6 mild-hybrid 349 and 342 HP oil burners, respectively.
Audi will be premiering the Q5 Sportback in a matter of months as a competitor to the BMW X4. And the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe.

In Audi’s dictionary, the term “Sportback” has long been synonymous only with hatchbacks such as the A1 and A3 and liftbacks such as the A5 and A7, but as of July 2019, the Ingolstadt people are now clapping the “Sportback” logo on crossovers.
The Q3 Sportback became the first high-ride model to carried under the brand when it launched in July 2019. With the fully autonomous E-Tron Sportback following in November. Last week, Audi announced the launch of the third SUV Sportback later this year–the Q5 Sportback.
