The Premium Plus trim of the 2018 Audi A5 Sportback brings with it one very special available feature: Rear Cross-Traffic Assist.

Check out the demonstration in the short video below, and for some hands-on demonstration of your own, come see us at Hoffman Audi of New London for a test drive!



The system utilizes sensors embedded in the rear bumper to scan the area directly behind you and uses the standard rearview camera gives you a view of what’s behind you when you’re backing up. If you’re in a busy parking lot, backing out of your perpendicular spot can become a daunting task, but with the Rear Cross Traffic Alert system, if there’s a car approaching, a warming tone and brake jolt can both alert the driver to put on the brakes. This isn’t the only safety system the A5 holds, so if you’re interested in standard Audi Pre-Sense® City and Audi Pre-Sense® Basic, you’re really going to appreciate the 2018 Audi A5 Coupe, Sportback, or Cabriolet.

If you’re interested in an uncompromising on-road performance, decidedly luxurious interior, and awesome safety features, that’s no surprise—you are, after all, looking through the Audi lineup. However, if you’re looking for a specific recommendation, it’s hard to find fault with the 2018 Audi A5 Sportback, but you’re welcome to try.
