Audi's RS5 Sportback is a more functional version of the already lovely RS5 Coupe.

An extra set of doors and a useful liftback design don't detract from this car's performance capabilities.

Power comes from a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6.

This car makes an impressive 444 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque.

The RS5 Sportback will accelerate to 60 miles per hour in 3.8 seconds, which is quicker than its BMW M3 and Mercedes-AMG C63 S rivals.

Quattro all-wheel drive is, of course, standard. It's an Audi, remember.

To my eyes, the RS5 Sportback actually looks better than the Coupe.

Fold the rear seats and there's a superuseful 35 cubic feet of cargo space.
