Audi Sportback Concept

January 16, 2009

DETROIT –Audi unveiled the Sportback concept show car at the 2009 North American International Automobile Show. With systematic refinements to the brand’s design elements, the five-door model offers a glimpse at the Audi's future design.

 

Power for the Sportback is provided by the 3.0L V-6 TDI clean diesel engine almost completely eliminates nitrogen oxides. This engine already meets the emissions limits of all 50 U.S. states and the EU6 standard scheduled to take effect in 2014. The Audi Sportback concept is expected to achieve fuel consumption figures of 39.87 mpg.

Since its introduction in 2004, the concept of the Sportback has established itself in the compact class, says the automaker.

The Audi Sportback concept show car is now rolling up to the starting line with a dual mission: As suggested by the name, it symbolizes the Sportback principle in its purest form in the combination of elegance, sportiness and variability.

The show car also signals the company's determination not to limit Sportback versions to the compact segment.
