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

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.

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