    Well yes - of sorts. The nonsense is that overpriced cars like these don't ride properly on standard suspension so you have to hit the options which hits the already weakening residuals as each new fashion driven niche becomes over subscribed.

    The Audi A5 Sportback 3. It's a quality product that conveys a satisfyingly premium feel from behind the wheel. The diesel engine used in this version is a further development of the 3. Audi is yet to provide official acceleration, consumption and emission figures, but as a guide, the A4 3. Despite being longer and wider than the old A5 Sportback, a shapelier silhouette means there are some sacrifices in overall practicality compared to the A4 saloon. Access to the rear seats isn't as straightforward and the sloping roofline robs headroom in the back.

    This is compensated for to some extent by an extra 24mm of rear legroom and added 11mm of shoulder room over the old model thanks to a longer and widened tracks wheelbase.

    Additionally, the boot has grown by 15 litres over that of the old model at litres, which is the same as that offered by the A4, expanding to litres with the seats folded. With a large electronically operated liftback-style tailgate, access is good, although a shallow opening restricts what objects you can carry.

    In a word, effortless. Despite lacking the outright power of rival units, the engine delivers terrific flexibility at lower revs and a heady punch of mid-range. The V6 becomes a little vocal above rpm but it is exceptionally well isolated from the cabin, making this car uncannily quiet by diesel standards and, in combination with outstanding longitudinal stability on the motorway, a brilliant long-distance proposition.

    Drive is sent through a standard eight-speed automatic gearbox which provides smooth and fast shifts that perfectly complement the nature of the engine. Depending on the driving mode, the torque converter-equipped unit either shifts up early to maximise economy or holds gears for maximum performance.

    Given the flexibility, you rarely feel inclined to use the steering wheel-mounted paddles, but when you do, the speed of the shifts is impressively rapid, particularly in Sport mode.

    The quattro four-wheel drive system apportions power to either end, while an optional sport differential continuously varies the amount of drive to each rear wheel, resulting in superb traction. Grip is good, too, and can be relied on to enter corners at reasonably high speeds and before unleashing the abundant torque at the exit without fear of the car stepping out of line. In all but the tightest corners, it remains terrifically neutral and dependable, both in dry and damp conditions.

    Nor does this A5 Sportback manage to match the comfort and composure of some rivals. On the optional 19in wheels of our test car, the suspension delivers taut body control and convincing fluidity. The overall ride is more sporting than that of the A4 saloon yet generally sound, with the ability to sponge away small imperfections with little trouble at city speeds.

    However, it is occasionally caught out by larger transverse ruts and deep potholes at higher speeds. The combination of a heavy diesel engine and comparatively low-profile tyres contribute to the odd nasty shudder when the road is not perfectly smooth, suggesting the cheaper and lighter 2. While pricing is yet to be announced, the A5 Sportback 3.
