Default 2017 Audi A5 Sportback spotted testing in Mumbai!

The new generation Audi A5 Sportback was spotted during a testing run without any camouflage by a RushLane reader on the empty roads of Navi Mumbai.

A search on Zauba reveals that Audi has imported a single unit of the 2017 A5 Sportback in April 2016. The said model is powered by a 1,968cc turbo diesel engine capable of churning out 190PS of power and 400Nm of torque.

The 2017 A5 Sportback will make it's global debut in Europe in the next few months.

Audi has not announced an Indian launch just yet.

Maybe it's for testing ahead of their global launch?

Either ways - hope Audi launches it in India. There is a niche market for a well priced 4 door coupe given how the customer profile for this segment is becoming increasingly younger.

More spy pics of the A5 Sportback during an (apparent?) testing run towards Mumbai on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad highway.

Spotted testing on the roads of Navi Mumbai by an OnCars reader. This time, it gives us a clear glimpse of the car's front.

Lightbulb Next-gen Audi A5 spotted testing in Mumbai!

Spotted this today... looks like it'll be available at showrooms very soon. It was fully de-badged but looked and sounded like it was a 2.0 TDI version going by the single exhaust / tail pipes.

Nice spotting R32_GTR!

Your post has been moved to a new thread, since a few people have reported this post saying it looked smaller than the A7 mule - and is probably the A5.

I actually spotted this very same A5 & another test mule (Q5 maybe?) here in Chennai, last month!
I thought it was the 2017 A4 until I stumbled upon this thread now.
Attaching a few pictures

The Q5 like test mule

Whereas, the Audi S5 is powered by a new 3.0L turbocharged V6 petrol engine which churn out 354 BHP and 500 Nm of torque. S5 also gets the 8-speed gearbox over the A5's 7-speed. It boasts a 0-100 km/h time of just 4.7 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h.

2017 S5 is larger, more powerful and more fuel efficient than the current S5 which is on sale in India.
