Audi has tested the new generation Audi A5 Sportback in India extensively.

The development was confirmed by Rahil Ansari, the new Head of Audi India. The all-new Audi A5 consists eight models: A5 Coupe, A5 Sportback, A5 Sportback g-tron, A5 Cabriolet, S5 Coupe, S5 Sportback, S5 Cabriolet and RS 5 Coupe. Audi has tested the previous generation Audi A5 Coupe in India, but only the Audi RS 5 Coupe and Audi S5 Sportback from the previous generation were launched in the country.

In addition to the replacements, Audi may launch the all-new Audi A5 Sportback as the base model of the family. It is worth noting that the company has extensively tested the 2017 Audi A5 Sportback in the country, and that could mean more than just global testing.
