What will happen to 2025 Audi A5 Sportback? Rumor has it that it would be axed in 2025, which means that fans should hurry up if they still want to get their hands on the handsome ride.

The A5 has undergone a pretty long history in its existence. Launched in 2008 for European market, the vehicle has captured a lot of buyers’ heart. As a part of a family ride with premium (and high end) coupe styling, the A5 has managed to create such an appealing quality in the sporty family ride. A lot of people say that the A5 Sportback has similar exterior design as the A4, but it also comes with more coupe-like quality and characteristics. This is another reason why this model is highly favorable among auto enthusiasts.

The Future Planning

It’s unclear whether the company would be making 2025 Audi A5 considering that the A5 Sportback would be axed in 2025. However, there is always a chance that Audi may make it, whatsoever, launching the line in 2024 as the 2025 model year. After all, the auto maker is still planning of extending its commercial life as long as possible. If they still stick to their 5-years of replacement cycle, they should be unveiling a new gen of A5 Sportback this year. But we can’t really be sure about their manufacturing plans and strategies.

Design and Appearance

Many people are still hopeful that Audi may change their minds about discontinuing the model. After all, it’s one of the most favorable models ever made. The A5 has a very good looking, somewhat tough, appearance with clear lines. With the big hexagonal (air intake) grille, the vehicle does have this appealing sporty visual look. The side is charming with coupe model, which actually sacrifices the interior space. But most people don’t mind because the car is just gorgeous, especially with its big tires and sporty effect.

The Renaming Plan

As it was mentioned before, Audi plans on renaming their A4 into A5 because the even numbered models would be transitioned into electric, and the renaming process will make it easier. So, when the company sells their future A4 electric, it would be the A5. The same plan is also utilized to the A6, believed to be changed to A7, while the battery powered model will still retain the A6 nameplate.

So, what’s happening to the A5 Sportback? As it was stated earlier, we won’t get it after 2025, but the future is still pretty unclear for 2025 Audi A5 Sportback, so it’s better to wait and see the upcoming updates.
