The Audi A4: even sportier and even some-more slicing edge

Posted on 15. May, 2019 by in Audi Canada

Sporty look: a extraneous design
The midsize indication looks even some-more energetic and worldly interjection to a sportier pattern highlights. The Singleframe grille is now broader and flatter; plane lines stress a breadth during a front and rear. The side perspective is tangible by a particular muscles above a fenders and a revoke set shoulder line in between. They form clever contours above a wheels and make a quattro genes presumably visible.

LED headlights now come customary in a Audi A4; a top-of-the-line headlights underline a Matrix LED record with entirely involuntary high beam. The apparatus line judgment is equally new: basic, modernized and S line are now accessible for a exterior, not to discuss a eccentric demeanour of a S models and a A4 allroad quattro. Customers can name from 12 paint colors, including a new terra gray option.

In a quietly styled interior of a Audi A4 a plane lines also communicate a altogether impression. In a core of a instrument panel, somewhat slanted toward a driver, is the large MMI touch display, a control core for a new doing system. The new interior packages: pattern preference and S line interior can be total openly with a extraneous lines and come with countless colors and materials. The contour/ambient lighting package adds highlights to a interior in a dark.

Groundbreaking: connectivity
With a new MMI complement a rarely connected Audi A4 offers a user knowledge identical to a contemporary smartphone. An MMI touch arrangement with acoustic feedback replaces a functions of a prior rotary/pushbutton control on a core hovel console. The high-resolution TFT arrangement measures 10.1 inches. Its graphics are deliberately purify and cut-down; a menu structure with a parsimonious hierarchies is tailored to user expectations and facilitates palliate of use. The MMI search is formed on giveaway content submit and earnings hits rapidly. The natural-language voice control, another duty of a new system, understands many of a phrases used in bland speech.

The navigation in a Audi A4 is now even some-more versatile and some-more user-friendly. The Audi bond and Audi connect and portfolio includes a horde of online services, such as Car-to-X services, that take advantage of a overflow comprehension of a Audi fleet. Apart from online trade pointer and jeopardy information, as good as a on-street parking service, trade light information is a new serve to a lineup. By networking with a civic infrastructure, a automobile receives information from a trade light executive mechanism around a server so that a motorist can name their speed to compare a subsequent immature light. The instrument cluster displays a personal speed recommendation as good as a remaining time to a subsequent immature light whenever a motorist is watchful during a red trade light. As such, a complement promotes an anticipatory, fit pushing style, along with a consistent upsurge of traffic. The duty is partial of a Audi connect package and is being rolled out in stages in comparison European cities.

The Audi bond services puncture call and use come standard; a giveaway myAudi app connects a customer’s smartphone seamlessly to a car. The Audi bond pivotal choice lets a patron lock/unlock a vehicle, and start a engine regulating a concordant Android smartphone. The personalization, another digital feature, allows adult to 14 myAudi users to store their elite settings in particular profiles.

The pioneering functions on approach are partial of a many innovations set to accompany a launch of a Audi A4. They concede business to supplement on 3 infotainment functions flexibly as compulsory around a myAudi app, even after purchasing a vehicle. In Germany, these are a MMI plus, a DAB+ digital radio and a Audi smartphone interface. There is a choice of several terms.

If business would like to get to know a duty initial before committing themselves, they can book a one-time, one-month exam phase. Customers can extend a engagement even during this phase, possibly for a serve month, a year, or permanently. If they confirm not to extend a term, a engagement expires automatically and but requiring active stop during a finish of a term.

The new MMI facilities a new categorical unit. The third-generation modular infotainment tallness MIB 3 delivers unusual computing power. It works with an equally new, spatially apart communication box that bundles all connectivity tasks – such as telephony or a Audi bond services – and incorporates a Wi-Fi hotspot. The discretionary hardware modules embody a Audi phone box and a Bang Olufsen 3D Premium Sound System in a front.

Three instrument cluster variants are available: dual partially analog motorist information systems and – in and with a MMI and – a all-digital Audi virtual cockpit plus. The motorist can work a 12.3-inch arrangement with full HD fortitude regulating a multifunction steering circle with a choice of 3 views. A head-up display projects critical information into a driver’s approach margin of view.

The A4 models are accessible with a horde of motorist support systems. The discretionary systems are bundled into a “Tour”, “City” and “Park” packages. An critical complement in a “Tour” package is a adaptive journey control including StopGo duty for involuntary stretch control. In and with a predictive efficiency assist it can stop and accelerate a A4 predictively even where there is no car ahead. To do so it analyzes Car-to-X messages, navigation information and trade signs.

Broad-based electrification: a expostulate system
Audi will be charity a A4 indication line with 6 turbocharged engines during sales launch in Europe. Their appetite outputs operation from 110 kW (150 PS) to 255 kW (347 PS) – from a Audi A4 35 TFSI (combined fuel expenditure 6.0 – 5.5 l/100 km (39.2- 42.8 US mpg)*; combined CO2 emissions 138 – 125 g/km (222.1 – 201.2 g/mi)* adult to a Audi S4 TDI (combined fuel expenditure 6.3 – 6.2 l/100 km (37.3 – 37.9 US mpg)*; total CO2 emissions 166 – 163 g/km (267.2 – 262.3 g/mi)*. All engines – possibly four-cylinder diesel unit, V6 TDI or four-cylinder TFSI – undercut a boundary of a Euro 6d-temp glimmer standard.

For a marketplace launch 3 engine variants will underline a mild-hybrid complement (MHEV) formed on 12 volts, that reduces fuel expenditure while improving comfort. This broad-based foundation creates an critical grant to achieving a swift targets for fuel consumption. In bland use, a MHEV complement reduces fuel expenditure by adult to 0.3 liters per 100 kilometersaccording to particular Audi measurements.

Whether primer transmission, seven-speed S tronic or eight-speed tiptronic, possibly front-wheel or quattro expostulate – any of a 6 engine variants delivers tailor-made appetite transmission. All A4 models come off a prolongation line with an involuntary delivery as standard.

Sportily harmonious: a suspension
The sportily offset cessation ideally harmonizes with a impression of a Audi A4. Customers can name between a customary setup and a competition suspension. There are also dual adaptive suspensions. One choice is a comfort cessation with check control, that reduces a float tallness by 10 millimeters (0.4 in) and offers glorious float comfort. The other is a competition suspension, possibly with or but check control, that is lowered by 

23 millimeters (0.9 in). With a even some-more energetic simple setup, it underscores a sporty impression while progressing comfort. Both tranquil suspensions are integrated into a Audi expostulate name energetic doing system. The same relates to a steering, with energetic steering, a involuntary delivery and a stifle valve accessible for business as an option. Audi expostulate name allows a motorist to establish that of adult to 5 profiles these systems use.

Diesel power: a Audi S4 TDI
Both S models of a A4 family – a Audi S4 Sedan TDI (combined fuel consumption 6.3 – 6.2 l/100 km (37.3 – 37.9 US mpg)*; total CO2 emissions 164 – 163 g/km (263.9 – 262.3 g/mi)* and a S4 Avant TDI (combined fuel expenditure 6.3 l/100 km (37.3 US mpg)*; total CO2 emissions 166 – 165 g/km (267.2 – 265.5 g/mi)* – are now versed with a V6 diesel engine as a appetite package. The 3.0 TDI combines large torque, well-spoken using and a prolonged operation and provides a appetite outlay of adult to 255 kW (347PS) and limit torque of 700 Nm (516.3 lb-ft). It accelerates a S4 Sedan TDI from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.8 seconds on a approach to an electronically governed tip speed of 250 km/h (155.3 mph). This multiple of power, torque and potency creates a Audi S4 TDI singular in a segment.

The electric powered compressor delivers absolute drive-off opening and probably seamless appetite buildup when accelerating. As such, it eliminates any turbo lag, providing present responsiveness in all pushing situations. The electric powered compressor is integrated into a new 48-volt categorical electrical system, that also incorporates a mild-hybrid system. This provides even some-more potency intensity than a MHEV complement in a 12-volt electrical complement on a A4 models. In a S4 TDI this is a subsequent enlargement theatre in that a mild-hybrid record will be rolled out formed on 48 volts. The 12-volt auxiliary electrical complement is connected to a 48-volt categorical electrical complement around a absolute DC/DC converter. For a initial time a absolute 48-volt belt alternator starter is being used in a S4 TDI as a heart of a mild-hybrid complement with a limit recuperation appetite of adult to 8 kW when braking.

A compact, air-cooled lithium-ion battery with a ability of 0.5 kWh, that is located underneath a luggage cell floor, acts as an appetite government center. The mild-hybrid complement on a S models has a intensity to revoke patron fuel expenditure by adult to 0.4 liters per 100 kilometers.

An eight-speed tiptronic and a quattro permanent all-wheel expostulate make adult a drivetrain. If desired, an discretionary competition differential is accessible to actively discharge appetite between a back wheels. In this way, some-more appetite can be destined privately to a circle on a outward of a hook when cornering during speed, that combats a bent to understeer early on. The S competition cessation is standard. With a S-specific setup it provides a sporty pushing sensation. This can be extended even serve with a discretionary S competition cessation with check control. Inside and out, a horde of pattern sum indicate to a singular position of a S models – from a empty tailpipes to a S mode in a arrangement of a discretionary Audi practical cockpit.

The unqualified onroad and offroad experience: a Audi A4 allroad quattro
Thanks to a quattro all-wheel expostulate and belligerent clearway lifted by 35 millimeters (1.4 in) the Audi A4 allroad quattro combines glorious float comfort and good offroad qualities. With a discretionary allroad-specific cessation with check control, comfort and impetus can be extended further. It differs from a A4 Avant by sum such as a underbody insurance or a circle arch trims and also by a 12-millimeter (0.5 in) incomparable wheels and a wider lane – 6 millimeters (0.2 in) wider during a front and eleven millimeters wider (0.4 in) during a rear.

Automatic transmissions come customary with a Audi A4 allroad qattro a cessation with check control provides an choice to a customary suspension. As on a A4 Avant, a luggage cell has a ability of 495 liters (17.5 cu ft) – this increases to 1,495 liters (52.8 cu ft) with a back seats folded down and load installed to a roof. The back induce and a luggage cell cover are electrically operated as standard. With a additional offroad mode on a Audi expostulate name energetic doing system, a motorist can name from six profiles in a A4 allroad quattro.

For a some-more extemporaneous buyers: a Audi A4 book one model
To coincide with a marketplace launch, a code with a 4 rings is presenting an A4 book indication dubbed “edition one.” It is accessible as a Sedan or Avant with a choice of 3 engine versions – a 2.0 TFSI with a appetite outlay of 180 kW (245 PS) (combined fuel consumption 6.9 – 6.5 l/100 km (34.1 – 36.2 US mpg)*; total CO2 emissions 157 – 146 g/km (252.7 – 235.0 g/mi)*, a 2.0 TDI with an outlay of 140 kW (190 PS) (combined fuel expenditure 5.3 – 4.9 l/100 km (44.4 – 48.0 US mpg)*; total CO2 emissions 140 – 131 g/km (225.3 – 210.8 g/mi)* and a 3.0 TDI with 170 kW (231 PS) (combined fuel expenditure 5.6 – 5.3 l/100 km (42.0 – 44.4 US mpg)*; total CO2 emissions 145 – 139 g/km (233.4 – 223.7 g/mi)*. The extraneous pattern is formed on a S line exterior, supplemented with distinguished elements such as a black styling package. For a interior, business can name between a pattern preference and a S line interior package.
