Audi A4, A4 Avant and A4 allroad quattro

Design and lightweight construction
With a length of 4.73 meters (15.5 ft) and a 2.82 meter (9.3 ft) wheelbase, the new Audi A4 stands confidently on the road. The front and rear designs are characterized by horizontal lines that emphasize the car’s width. The flowing design with concise lines communicates the sporty elegance of Audi. The Singleframe grille is broad and flat. The optional headlights with LED or Audi matrix LED technology with dynamic indicators provide the visual trademark.

The dimensions of the new Audi A4 have increased compared with the predecessor model, yet the unladen weight has decreased significantly – by up to 120 kilograms (264.6 lb), depending on the engine version. The body is the lightest in the competitive field thanks to an intelligent mix of materials and lightweight design.

Display and operating concept
The new Audi A4 offers a wealth of intelligent technologies. At the same time, operation has become even more intuitive with the new Audi MMI display and operating concept. The optional Audi virtual cockpit, a fully digital instrument cluster, presents the most important information in graphic form on its high-resolution 12.3 inch LCD screen with brilliant resolution, a high level of detail and carefully calculated effects.

MMI control, which is located on the center console, has also been redesigned and serves as the main control element. A touchpad is integrated in the MMI control panel for the top infotainment system, MMI navigation plus with MMI touch and a large 8.3-inch monitor. It can be used to zoom in and out and to input characters.

The whole MMI control logic is similar to that of a smartphone, including the intelligent free text search function. The new, natural voice control system can also recognize easily understandable input in everyday language, such as: “I want to call Peter Miller.” Audi can also install an optional head-up display.

Drive system
Three TFSI four TDI engines make up the engine line for the new Audi A4. Their power output has increased considerably and is now between 110 kW (150 hp) and 200 kW (272 hp). On the other hand, fuel consumption has been reduced by up to 21 percent. The A4 2.0 TDI only needs 3.7 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers (63.6 US mpg) which equates to CO2 emissions of 95 grams per kilometer (154.5 g/mi). All the engines combine efficiency with sporty power development and smooth running – especially the two 3.0 TDI six-cylinder engines.

The new Audi A4 has a groundbreaking innovation for the gasoline engines: The 2.0 TFSI ultra with 140 kW (190 hp) utilizes a new combustion method. It makes the car especially efficient and allows a CO2  level of 109 grams per kilometer (175.4 g/mi) and a fuel consumption level of 4.8 liters per 100 kilometers (49.0 US mpg).

Manual transmission, S tronic and tiptronic, front-wheel and quattro all-wheel drive – a slew of different solutions for power transmission in the new Audi A4. For each engine version there is a custom-designed technology.

Chassis
The new Audi A4 makes a great stride in drivability: on the one hand sporty and performance-oriented, on the other hand comfort-oriented. The chassis and steering systems filter out noise signals such as roadway unevenness, while also giving feedback to the driver on the buildup of lateral force and tracking in the driving lane, for instance. This leap forward in performance is based on the newly developed five-link suspensions and electromechanical power steering system. Extremely lightweight, they lay the foundation for the dynamic behavior and the first-class ride comfort. At the same time, they reduce fuel consumption. Optionally available is the dynamic steering, which varies its gear ratio depending on the speed and steering angle. Suspension systems with damper control are also available, allowing the driver for the first time to choose between two trim positions – one for sportiness and one for comfort. Both suspension variants are incorporated into the Audi drive select driving dynamics system, which is standard with engines from 190 hp.

Assists and equipment
The new Audi A4 also sets standards in its class thanks to numerous assistance systems. The predictive efficiency assistant helps to save fuel, the active lane assist helps to stay in the lane and the stop & go adaptive cruise control including traffic jam assist relieves the driver’s work in slow-moving traffic. A special feature of traffic jam assist is its control strategy. It utilizes many different parameters such as lane markings and the group of vehicles driving ahead. From this information the system derives a virtual vehicle path, along which it guides the A4. Other new and important safety features include the park assist, rear cross traffic assist, exit warning system, collision avoidance assist and turn assist as well as the Audi pre sense systems. The camera-based recognition of traffic signs is also offered.

The standard equipment has become even more diverse compared with the predecessor models. It includes Xenon headlights, convenience key, a Bluetooth interface, Audi drive select (from 140 kW/190 hp) and a 7‑inch MMI color display.

Other technological highlights of the new Audi A4 include the Audi smartphone interface, the Bang & Olufsen sound system with 3D sound, the Audi phone box with wireless charging and the Audi connect services.

Audi A4 Avant
The Avant models from Audi have been celebrating great successes for over two decades. The combination of aesthetic design and functional utility assures them an exceptional standing. The new A4 Avant continues this trend – with even more space and more elegance. The maximum capacity is 1,510 liters (53.3 cu ft) with the rear seat backrest folded down. The latter is split 40:20:40, and can be easily folded down to the seat cushions using a lever on the side of the luggage compartment

The basic dimensions of the luggage compartment of the Audi A4 Avant come to 505 liters (17.8 cu ft) – 15 liters (0.5 cu ft) more than the predecessor model. The loading sill is only 63 centimeters (24.8 in) high, while a standard stainless steel sill cover protects it from scratches. The load-area width measures one meter (3.3 ft).

The cuboid dimensions make the luggage compartment outstandingly practical. A partition net and roof rails are standard, as is the electric load area cover. Audi also offers other practical features: The optional trailer hitch unlocks electronically at the push of a button. The new Audi A4 Avant is certified for towed loads of up to 2,100 kilograms (4,629.7 lb) (with an eight percent grade).

The lithium-ion battery, which produces 8.8 kWh of energy, enables an electric driving range of up to 50 kilometers (31.1 mi); the TFSI adds an additional 890 kilometers (553.0 mi) to this maximum. From an industrial power socket, it takes slightly more than two hours to charge the battery fully.

A decoupler controls the interplay between the combustion engine, electric motor and seven-speed S tronic. The Audi A3 Sportback e-tron can be driven up to 130 km/h (80.8 mph) all-electrically; it can combine the two drives to optimize either efficiency or power, and it features energy recuperation and a coasting function. In addition, the driver has the choice between several hybrid programs and modes. Special indicators inform the driver about what is going on.

As an optional service, German customers of the Audi A3 Sportback e-tron can switch over to Audi Energy as their residential utility company. 100 percent of the electricity comes from hydroelectric power plants in Germany, Austria and Switzerland – so when customers drive the plug-in hybrid model in electric mode, the car not only offers zero local emissions, it also offers zero global emissions.

Fuel consumption according to ECE standard in l/100 km: 1.7 – 1.5
(138.4 – 156.8 US mpg)
Combined energy consumption in kWh/100 km: 12.4 – 11.4
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 39 – 35 (62.8 – 56.3 g/mi)
(Figures vary depending on engine/transmission/wheels/tires)

Audi A3 Sportback g-tron
A big step towards the sustainable mobility of the future has also been taken by the Audi A3 Sportback g-tron: The five-door premium compact model can use climate-friendly Audi e‑gas as an alternative to fossil natural gas. The two tanks located under the luggage compartment floor each store around 7 kilograms (15.4 lb) of gas at a maximum pressure of 200 bar. They reduce luggage space only marginally and are constructed from a composite material, making them very light.

Equipped with a 1.4 TFSI engine producing 81 kW (110 hp), the A3 Sportback g-tron sets standards for efficiency and economy. Fuel costs to the customer are roughly four euros per 100 kilometers (62.1 mi). Thanks to the four-cylinder engine’s configuration for bivalent fuels, its range is over 400 km (248.5 mi) in the NEDC cycle with natural gas fuel. When powered by gasoline, driving range is extended by as much as an additional 900 km (559.2 mi).

The Audi A3 Sportback g-tron, which comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission or seven-speed S tronic, has a combined fuel consumption of less than 3.5 kilograms (7.7 lb) of natural gas or Audi e-gas per 100 kilometers (62.1 mi). This is the sustainable own-brand fuel produced in the Audi e‑gas project in Werlte, in Germany’s Emsland district – the fuel is methane which is synthetically produced from CO2 and water using green electricity. In pure e-gas mode, the five-door premium compact is entirely CO2 neutral. Customers can refuel using an e-gas card, which serves as an accounting instrument.

CNG consumption in kg/100 kilometers: 3.6 – 3.3 (5.8 – 5.3 kg/mi)
Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 5.5 – 5.1 (42.8 – 46.1 US mpg)
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km (CNG): 98 – 89 (157.7 – 143.2 g/mi)
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km (gasoline): 128 – 117 (206.0 – 188.3 g/mi)
(Figures vary depending on engine/transmission/wheels/tires)

Audi A3 Sedan
The Audi A3 Sedan is the sporty notch-back model in the premium compact segment; its design merges the classic three-box concept with the dynamics of a coupe. The 425-liter (15.0 cu ft) cargo space (with quattro drive: 390 liters [13.8 cu ft]) can be expanded by folding down the rear seat backs. Equipped with the 1.4 TFSI engine, the four-door model has a curb weight of just 1,205 kg (2,656.6 lb).

Audi delivers the A3 Sedan with powerful and highly efficient TFSI and TDI engines; their power ranges from 81 kW (110 hp) to 135 kW (184 hp). In the 1.4 TFSI with 110 kW (150 hp), cylinder on demand (COD) technology deactivates two of the cylinders at low load.

A six-speed manual gearbox or an S tronic transmits engine torque to either the front wheels or to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system. The extensive list of optional equipment also includes the innovative LED headlights.

Audi A3 Cabriolet
The Audi A3 Cabriolet is distinguished by its sporty and elegant proportions and low weight. Like every Audi convertible, it has a lightweight cloth top. An acoustic top with very effective noise insulation is available as an option. Its electrohydraulic drive raises or lowers the top even at speeds up to 50 km/h (31.1 mph). In the opened position, the soft top rests in a tray that hardly affects the cargo capacity of the trunk, which is 280 liters (9.9 cu ft) or 245 liters (8.7 cu ft) with quattro drive. An active rollover protection system protects occupants in the event of a rollover accident.

Audi can deliver the A3 Cabriolet with one of six engines: three TFSI engines and three TDI units. Their power range extends from 81 kW (110 hp) to 135 kW (184 hp). The 1.4 TFSI is a particularly efficient gasoline engine, thanks to its cylinder on demand (COD) technology. quattro permanent all-wheel drive can be selected with the 1.8 TFSI and the two 2.0 TDI engines.
