2019 RS 5 Sportback makes debut in New York as new Audi model

Making its world debut at the New York International Auto Show, the 2019 Audi RS 5 Sportback adds an all-new model to the Audi Sport lineup. The five-door, five-seat performance sedan becomes a 444-horsepower option for Volkswagen’s luxury brand.

The design of the new Sportback is taken from the Audi 90 quattro IMSA GTO racer, befitting the RS name and Audi Sport family. A wave design to the shoulder of the car and flared fenders promise performance. A wide and flat grille gives intake potential to the turbocharged engine behind it, while the front spoiler below that engages aerodynamics for the road.
