Audi A5 Sportback rivals the C-Class and 3 Series

The Malaysian Government recently announced that sales tax on CBU vehicles would be discounted by 50%, meaning Audi’s range of fully-imported vehicles will be coming down in price by about 5%. But don’t wait until the end of the year to decide. Here is why. The immediate rivals to this fully imported Audi Sportback is the local assembled Mercedes-Benz C-300 AMG at RM304,888 and also the local assembled BMW 330e M Sport at 288,800.

Both the Benz and BMW do not have all wheel drive like the Audi quattro and it is know fact that a fully imported car like the Audi A5 quattro has better build quality and materials used. Yes, the Audi is more expensive, but that is the price of a higher specification vehicle and the ‘imported from Germany’ feel.

For this June only, Euromobil is offering interest rates as low as 0% on selected models. And if you’re looking for that one car that combines sports car athleticism with the elegance and functionality of a sedan, you have to take a look at the A5 Sportback.

The Audi A5 family is all about sportiness, athletic ability and avant-garde design. The Sportback brings a dash of practicality to the model line by taking coupé elements such as frameless windows and a sloping roofline, and adding 2 additional doors and a tailgate for ease of access. Audi have also given the A5 Sportback design enhancements that give it a unique character. Note the shoulder line, which extends across the length of the vehicle, forming a 3D wave. Another highlight is the flat front end with a low and wide version of the Singleframe grille. Right above that is the A5’s powerdome-inspired hood, which signals the potency of the engine. In Malaysia, the Audi A5 Sportback comes with 19” multi-spoke alloy wheels finished in silver. Sequential turn indicators and an ultra-modern LED daytime running light pattern cement Audi’s futuristic design philosophy on the A5.

This makes it a great for fun weekend drives, and if the trip involves a lot of luggage, the 480-litre boot is more than able to accommodate.
