Audi Might Bring the A5 Sportback to the U.S.

{img 1align=left}Audi seems to have infected the world with the Sportback virus, as the company’s A5 Sportback and recently-introduced A7 Sportback models have received a great interest from the public.

However, it isn'tt clear yet if the Sportback madness will hit the U.S. with its full power. According to autoblog, the current clues indicate that the A7 Sportback will make its way to America, allowing Audi to enter a new niche segment of the country’s market.

However, when it comes to Sportback incarnation, things aren’t so clear anymore. Audi insiders have told the aforementioned source that the company also plans to use the A7 Sportback as a market test for the A5 Sportback.

In other words, Audi will evaluate the success of the former in order to decide if its U.S. model range will also include the latter.

The timing story of the two vehicles' introduction naturally follows the same pathway. While the A5 is still an uncertainty, the A7 is expected to make its U.S. debut after the car comes to Europe. This will happen early next year, so there is a possibility that Americans will also get the vehicle during the course of next year.

Audi has recently shown that it is open to bringing new models to the U.S.. There are two examples for this, with both of them being connected to the company's RS performance models. First, Audi announced that it will import the RS5 coupe to the county and then the automotive producer launched an on-line petition for bringing the TT RS to America.
