The A4 range
More space, more elegance, more sportiness: The new Audi A4 Avant combines an aesthetic design with functional utility and offers a whole lot more beyond that. The innovative Audi virtual cockpit with its high-resolution 12.3-inch LCD screen and the optional Bang & Olufsen sound system with 3D sound set inspiring accents in the interior and offer a luxury-class standard.
Audi Matrix LED headlights
Safety, efficiency, attractive design: The Audi Matrix LED headlights divide the LED high beam into many tiny light-emitting diodes which shine through three reflectors. The control unit switches the reflectors on and off as needed or can dim each of them in 64 steps. They always provide high-precision illumination and the best possible light output without requiring a pivoting mechanism.
Bang & Olufsen sound system with 3D sound
Set completely new standards: The optional Bang & Olufsen sound system with 3D sound offers a fascinating innovation – a sound that enables listeners to experience spatial height. This is achieved by using four additional loudspeakers, two in the dashboard and two in the A-pillars. The heart of the sound system: a 755-watt 16-channel amplifier which controls the 19 loudspeakers. A sound experience that has never been available in cars before: The music sounds as if it was played in a concert hall.
Audi virtual cockpit.
The optional Audi virtual cockpit for the Audi A4 Avant offers top-quality high-tech features. The instrument cluster in the form of a high-resolution 12.3-inch LCD screen presents information in a comprehensive and versatile manner: The Infotainment mode is dominated by a central window while the rev counter and speedometer are displayed as small round elements. The classic view focuses on the instruments. The central window with the navigation map or the telephone, radio or audio lists is correspondingly smaller here.
Audi smartphone interface.
Fully integrated: The optional Audi smartphone interface brings Apple Car Play and Android Auto on board. When a mobile phone running iOS or Android (iOS 7.1 or higher, Android 5.0 Lollipop or higher) is connected to the USB port, the smartphone content – e.g. navigation, phone, music as well as selected apps such as Spotify and WhatsApp – is shown in a separate MMI menu. The functions on the MMI system are laid out with a newly designed menu structure. The menu operation with its flat hierarchies is reminiscent of smartphones – an intelligent, easy-to-use logic replaces static menu trees.
Engines and transmissions
The engines of the Audi A4 Avant
The 185 kW 2.0 TFSI propels the Audi A4 Avant from 0 to 100 km/h in mere 6.0 seconds and on to a maximum speed of up to 250 km/h. The 3.0 TDI engine is available in 2 performance levels: 160 kW and 200 kW. In the top version, the Audi A4 Avant accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.4 seconds and continues until it reaches the limited top speed of 250 km/h.
The TDI engines are provided with the common rail injection technology and a diesel particulate filter; the 3.0 TDI engine is also available as a clean diesel version. As standard, all engines are equipped with the start-stop system and recuperation, as a result of which they are among the most fuel-efficient power units of their class.
One in every two Audi cars sold today is a diesel. What we take for granted now was quite a sensation a mere 20 years ago: Audi revolutionised the market with the first 2.5 litre TDI engine. Since then, developments such as common rail technology with its refined and precise fuel distribution have made TDI even more efficient. Consequently, since the first TDI, the engines have become more economical, whilst specific output has increased. So it was only logical that a diesel car should then enter the world of motorsport. And successfully too: in 2006, Audi was the first car maker to win the Le Mans 24 Hours with a diesel-powered race car, the Audi R10 TDI – and then went on to repeat this victory several times over, most recently in 2011.Powerful 2.0 TDI and 3.0 TDI engines are available for the Audi A4, which operate with intelligent common rail diesel technology. In addition, they are equipped with the start-stop system as standard. The 2.0 TDI engine has 88 to 130 kW available. The 3.0 TDI is available with 150 and 180 kW; in the 180 kW variant also as clean diesel. In addition to their efficiency, the TDI engines are of course also characterised by their power.
Seven engines, one principle: less fuel consumption and more power. Compared to the predecessor model, fuel consumption has been reduced by up to 21 percent while power was increased by up to 25 percent.
Consumption and emission values: Combined fuel consumption: 4.9 – 5.9 l/100 km CO2 emission figures combined: 129 – 154 g/km
The start-stop-system helps to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by switching off the engine in stationary phases, e.g. at traffic lights. The start process is initiated as soon as the clutch is pressed (manual transmission) or when the footbrake is released (S tronic) for a good getaway. Can be deactivated at any time via a button.
