It won’t be the first ‘luxury saloon’ to feature a hatchback, currently the Tesla Model S comes to mind, and think the Skoda Superb is also a hatch. But perhaps the Skoda isn’t a ‘luxury car’!

Comes in Coupe, Cabriolet and Hatchback (Sportback) variants in the UK.

Is not for sale in the UK as a Saloon, unsure of elsewhere though?

In German, sedan is called Stufenhecklimousine, and hatchback is called Schräghecklimousine. So Limousine means "a normal car, you know, not a coupé, cabrio or van". It seems Mercedes-Benz translated it to saloon.

In English a sedan is called a saloon. So Sedan means "a saloon car, you know, not a coupe, cabrio, van or hatchback". It seems Audi translated hatchback to sportback for the A5.

Either way, the A5 is not a saloon or sedan. Or a 轿车, седан, or even a מכונית.
