Performance and suspension
All-wheel steering - improves the driving dynamics and the driving comfort as a result of additional steerability of the rear axle. At lower speeds, the rear axle self-steers oppositely to the steering angle of the front axle. This results in higher agility and a smaller steering angle, making manoeuvring easier. At higher speeds, steering in the same direction improves the responsiveness, as well as the driving dynamics, cornering and vehicle stability
Electromechanical active roll stabilisation - improves agility, ride and steering precision. During high speeds body roll is reduced, the car leans less in bends and the tendency to understeer is further reduced
Power door closure – comfortable and secure door closure
Titanium Black Styling Pack – front radiator grille frame and styling accents on front bumper in Titanium black, and side window trims in High-gloss black
Titanium black door mirrors (if ordered in Night black (A1) or Orca black (2T), door mirror housing is in body colour)
Heated front and outer rear seats for the second row
Driver and front passenger memory function for the electrically adjustable front seats
Electrically adjustable steering column with memory functionality – adjustable for height and reach with auto easy-entry and exit function
Multi-coloured Extended LED Interior Lighting Pack - includes lighting in the following areas
Audio and communication
Audi Music Interface in the rear – 2 USB ports with charge and data functions and 2 additional ports in the front
Advanced Key - access and authorisation system that works through automatic data exchange between key and vehicle, allowing the driver to keep the car key in their pocket or bag at all times. To unlock and open, simply lift the exterior door handle, use a kicking motion underneath the car at the rear of the vehicle or hold down the convenience key. The luggage compartment lid can also be opened when the vehicle is locked
360° camera - wide-angle lenses cover the close-range area around the vehicle. The driver can choose between different image representations in the touch screen, including a live ‘bird’s-eye view’, a view of the front and rear wheels, front camera view or panoramic front and rear view. The 360° camera is activated when reverse gear is selected or via a button on the virtual switch panel
Audi Side Assist - when activated, the system aids the driver when changing lanes. Audi Side Assist monitors the area behind the vehicle informing the driver with a visual warning signal in the door mirror, if there is a vehicle in their blind spot or approaching quickly from behind. In the event of the driver starting a lane change with a warning in effect, the warning LED will flash 4 times. In conjunction with the departure warning, corrective steering intervention can be performed in critical situations
Audi Pre Sense Basic - where necessary, actions are taken to help protect the driver and passenger if a potential collision is detected, including seat belt tightening front and rear, closing windows and closing the the panoramic roof
Audi Pre Sense Rear - monitors vehicles following from behind, and if a potential collision is detected, the driver is first warned visually via a flashing light. If a collision is unavoidable actions are taken, in line with Audi Pre-sense Basic, to protect the occupants. The system is deactivated when towing
Cross Traffic Assist Front - within system limits, warns the driver of traffic crossing in front or to the side of the vehicle, using vehicle sensors. The system first alerts the driver visually and then acoustically via the MMI. A brake jolt is applied if a potential collision is detected. The system can also assist the driver at crossings and exits with poor visibility, and warn against a possible collision with oncoming traffic detected from the side
Cross Traffic Assist Rear - Warns the driver of traffic crossing behind their own vehicle when starting to reverse without having a clear view of the situation (e.g. perpendicular parking space with restricted view or narrow driveway). The system alerts the driver first visually and then acoustically via the MMI, and can apply a brake jolt if a potential collision is detected
Exit Warning - Warns the driver of potential collisions with detected traffic approaching from the rear, when a door is opened whilst the vehicle is stationary. When the door release lever is pulled and another road user deemed critical is approaching, the warning strip in the door and the LED indicator on the exterior mirror on the affected side light up. Simultaneously, the door opening is delayed briefly
Adaptive Cruise Assist - supports the driver when accelerating, braking, maintaining distances, and with steering in the range of 0–155mph.***** Within the system limits, the system detects the lane markings, structures next to the road, vehicles in adjacent lanes and multiple vehicles ahead. The system can be adjusted in single and 5mph increments between 19mph and 155mph.***** The system will keep the vehicle in the centre of the lane and maintain speed and distance, or adjust the speed to the situation. This is all made possible by the radar sensor, front camera and ultrasonic sensors that permanently monitor the vehicle surroundings. Using information such as speed restrictions, the MMI Navigation Plus with MMI Touch uses the data from the predictive efficiency assistant to control speed even when there are no vehicles ahead, encouraging economical driving
Predictive efficiency assistant - The system uses navigation data e.g. speed limits, traffic signs, road bends, junctions and roundabouts to give the driver efficiency advice in the Audi Virtual Cockpit. In conjunction with Adaptive Cruise Assist, the system uses the route data and speed limits to adjust the desired speed and cornering accordingly. The system activates coasting mode or engine braking, which can help reduce fuel consumption and enhance ride comfort
Camera-based traffic sign recognition - speed limit and traffic sign display via the Audi Virtual Cockpit and head-up display. Detects the following signs: speed limits (including temporary limits) and overtaking restrictions. Up to 3 traffic signs can be displayed in the Audi Virtual Cockpit at any one time
Collision avoidance assistant - supports the driver’s actions during an avoidance manoeuvre, reducing the likelihood of a collision or of swerving off the road. The system provides additional steering torque and uses the vehicle sensors to calculate the optimum path of avoidance
Turn assist - when turning at junctions, from the moment the turn indicators are activated, the turn assist system detects approaching vehicles and applies braking to help avoid a collision
Emergency Assist - The emergency assist detects, within system limits, when the driver is inactive. When this happens, it warns the driver visually, acoustically, and haptically. If no response is received, the system takes over vehicle guidance and brings it to an automatic standstill in its own lane, activating Audi Pre-sense Basic measures. An automatic emergency call is placed, if available
