Audi Sport, the high-performance division of the German automaker, has unveiled its all-new RS 5 Sportback on the eve of the 2018 New York International Auto Show.

Little has changed under the skin compared to the coupe, the Sportback featuring the same Porsche-derived 2.9-litre "hot-vee" twin-turbo V6, producing 444bhp and 443lb ft of torque, connected to a slick eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox. For the Sportback, this means a 0-60 run of under 4 seconds and a top speed of 155 miles per hour, or 174 miles per hour if you go for the Dynamic plus package.

The quattro system enables blazing fast performance - from a standstill to 60 mph (96 kph) it will need less than four seconds, and will continue on to either 155 miles per hour (249 kilometers per hour), or 174 miles per hour (280 kilometers per hour), dependent of the fitting of the optional Dynamic Plus package. An available Sport differential can be added to further split torque between the rear wheels. Otherwise, the top speed is 155 miles per hour.

Visually there are no surprises with the RS5 Sportback, as it shares pretty much all its aesthetic upgrades over standard A5 models with the RS5 Coupe. The suspension can also be enhanced with adjustable dampers.

Outside, however, the RS treatment sees all four wheel arch blisters extend by 15mm, not only to aid in aggressive appearance but to accommodate a wider track and big 19 or 20-inch wheels.

"The sporty nature of the five-door high-performance coupé is emphasized by details such as the RS sport seats with optional honeycomb pattern in fine Nappa leather, and the flat-bottomed RS multifunction sports leather steering wheel". RS technical data, such as tire pressure, torque and G forces, are displayed on the information displays fitted in the cabin.

Pricing information will be announced closer to the market launch but expect to pay a slight premium on the $70,875 you have to pay for the coupe.
