Sportback

Post by Leonard Stanley » Wed Mar 28, 2018 10:21 am

Think this makes a lot of sense, will be interested to test it out - https://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/top ... &t=1733385
Current 2015 RS5 Cab (Panther, most of the toys - except straigtheners), 2012 Discovery 4 family wagon.
Gone 2014 Golf R (Loaded, total sh!te), 2015 Cayman GTS, PDK and stuff, 2014 RS4, Sepang with most of the toys, SQ5, S4 lots of other cars - nothing of interest to be honest.

I think so too. I'm a fan of the b9 sportback platform. I have one as a courtesy car - just a 2.0 S-Line and even in that guise, it felt nimble and well judged.

In the right colour, the S5 sportback looks really, really smart. If they do this well, could be a winner.

Looks great, probably as practical as the rs4. My last sportback boot access was better for bikes than my current rs4. This should sell well

I think the RS5 should be a coupe only... not liking the SB..

Scroll to the bottom, you can see one in Floret Silver..
