The fascination of Audi
Responsibility
Living up to our responsibilities is a principle that
is firmly anchored in Audi strategy. Alongside
commercial success and international competitiveness,
our responsibility toward company employees and
society as a whole is a key consideration, as is protecting
the environment and conserving resources. And what
is true in the details – our catalogues are printed on
FSC-certified paper – also holds in general: Audi develops
cars that are not only sporty and emotive but also ever
more efficient. In the long run, Audi wants its products
to allow CO₂-neutral mobility. Seeing to it that production
in Audi plants gradually becomes CO₂-neutral is another
aspect of our comprehensive approach. Audi is also
committed to society – particularly in the fields of
education, technology and social projects. At Audi,
sustainability is closely linked with how we see the
future: the Audi Urban Future Initiative sees Audi
working with international experts to get to the root
of future urban challenges and trends in mobility.
the world of Audi.
Choosing an Audi means choosing
a brand that offers more.
More individuality. More exclusivity.
More fascination.

Team spirit
Motorsport is a driving force behind the brand. For years
Audi has been among the champions in various racing
series, for instance the 24 Hours of Le Mans or the DTM
German Touring Car Masters. The values that are crucial
in many different areas of sport are also central ones for
Audi: precision, passion and technology. No coincidence
then that Audi has been sponsoring sporting events for
many years. In the world of winter sports, for example,
Audi has been the main sponsor of the German Ski
Association (DSV) for almost three decades and has also
partnered 14 other national alpine teams. In football,
we support national and international teams. And
Audi is also a partner for the German Olympic Sports
Confederation.

The future of all-wheel drive.
The world is constantly changing. Technology is advancing at an ever faster pace. And in the process, more and more
opportunities are opening up to you – nowhere more so than in the field of mobility. We are playing an instrumental role in
shaping this progress with Vorsprung durch Technik. Striving to provide you with technology that enriches your life. Making
sure that we don’t just satisfy your expectations of mobility both today and in the future, but continue to surpass them.

>>> Aerodynamics
Less drag, more efficiency. Thanks to the
consistently aerodynamic styling of the
vehicle’s lines – in order to achieve the best
possible form for aerodynamic efficiency.
Not forgetting tyres with reduced rolling
resistance. All tested in the Audi wind tunnel
at up to 300 km/h.
>>> Transmission expertise
Improved efficiency thanks to improved
transmission ratios. A high torque output
makes longer ratios possible, especially
in higher gears. For powerful torque in the
low engine speed range which reduces
consumption – yet has virtually no impact
on driving performance and sportiness.
>>> Lightweight expertise
Less weight. More savings, power and
endurance. Audi lightweight technology.
What started with lightweight body
construction has now made its way into
nearly all areas, combining innovative
materials such as aluminium and
magnesium, intelligent design principles
and resource-saving manufacturing
processes into an overall concept.
>>> Recuperation
Braking that leads to even more efficient driving.
With brake energy recovery (recuperation). Part
of the kinetic energy produced when braking and
coasting is temporarily stored in the vehicle’s
battery and then used when accelerating.
Depending on the driving cycle, this can save
up to 3 % of fuel.
Audi ultra
Perfectly combined.
The future of efficient technologies.
Building an Audi is an extremely complicated business. And yet a simple principle applies for all models: all vehicle components
interlock precisely in order to produce emission-reducing synergies. What started in accordance with this principle at the
end of the 1980s with Audi lightweight construction and the revolutionary Audi Space Frame (ASF®) is now known as the
reversal of the weight spiral: every lightweight component has an impact on other components, which can in turn be made
smaller. In this way, existing forms and materials are continuously being improved with regard to their functionality, the
lowest possible weight and their production process. With the goal of building vehicles that are even more efficient and
make more sparing use of resources. At the same time, more and more efficiency technologies are being built into an Audi.
These include recuperation and the start-stop system. Not to mention progressive, efficient high-tech engines. For greater
driving dynamics, high compression, more efficient combustion and lower CO₂ emissions. All this is known as Audi ultra.
Today and in the future – towards CO₂-reduced mobility.
>>> Engine expertise
Powerfully and efficiently driven. By Audi ultra
with efficiency technologies in the engine sector.
Such as Audi cylinder on demand and the Audi
valvelift system, which both reduce the amount of
energy consumed by the engine, or clean diesel
technology, which can help to reduce emissions.

Intelligent performance
42
Intelligent performance
Maximum power.
Put to maximum use.
Every movement originates from something. Something that sets it off, an idea. The
engine in your Audi can also be traced back to an initial spark of inspiration: higher
power with lower fuel consumption. These apparently conflicting aims are reconciled
in revolutionary TFSI drive technology.
Audi cylinder
on demand
TFSI®
Audi TFSI engines attain a particularly high compression rate.
The result: outstanding efficiency combined with optimum
performance. Substituting supercharging for cubic capacity has
the effect of considerably reducing engine size and weight – while
performance remains as impressively dynamic as ever. For power
delivery that will win you over from the word go.
The fuel consumption and CO₂ emission figures as well as the efficiency classes can be found from page 94 onwards.
Even cylinder heads can be intelligent,
as Audi cylinder on demand proves.
Cylinders two and three of the TFSI
engine’s four cylinders automatically
shut down in the partial-load range.
This helps to lower fuel consumption
at the same time as reducing emissions.
Without the switchover even being
noticed or impairing the driving
dynamics.

Your Audi is painted not just once.
But four times.
When you choose a paint colour, choose one that best reflects your own personality.
But whichever colour you opt for, you can count on the outstanding quality of our
painting process. Though no thicker than a human hair, the layer of paint on an Audi
is actually made up of four different coats. So not only do you look radiant in your
Audi, the car is also optimally protected from environmental influences and wear.
For its entire lifetime.
Quality you can see and feel: the optional acoustic hood captivates with its high-quality covers in different colours
and a hood compartment with circumferential aluminium bar. It can be opened and closed at speeds up to 50 km/h
and its fine interior materials always ensure a pleasantly quiet ride as well as excellent heat insulation.

The perfect connection
between an Audi and the
road.
With a wide variety of designs and top-quality
workmanship, we have a comprehensive range of
wheels to put the perfect finishing touch to your Audi.
Each Audi model has a tailored set of wheel options.
Emphasise the character of your Audi according to your
own individual wishes. Would you perhaps like to give
it a more dynamic appearance? Then our special Audi
Sport range of wheels is what you’re looking for. Just
let yourself be inspired. No matter which design you
choose, it is you who determines the style.
Quality given form.
And a brilliant finish.
Audi wheels.
To make sure you have peace of mind for every metre of your drive, Audi puts
its wheels through an exacting series of specialised test procedures. Hardness
tests, for example, aim for maximum stability, while a copper accelerated salt
spray test – CASS for short – using acetic acid guarantees the greatest possible
corrosion protection. Thanks to these and many other measures, we can
ensure that every Audi wheel offers maximum quality – even after scores
of kilometres. No matter which of the numerous designs you choose.

Fixated on quality.
| Cloth and leather upholstery and trim
With Audi seats, you can rely not only on elegant materials
and top-class workmanship, but on comprehensive
testing procedures as well. Audi tests the quality of all
seat leather in its own laboratory, for instance. 45 tests
are used to determine the durability alone. Clamped in
automatic jigs, the leather samples have to show how
evenly they stretch, where they start to tear and when
they start to develop folds, how abrasion proof and flame
resistant they are. Only leather that passes all the tests
with flying colours is used for Audi seats.

Parking system, rear¹
makes reverse parking easier by indicating acoustically
how far away the vehicle is from an object detected
behind the vehicle; measurement is by ultrasonic
sensors integrated discreetly in the bumper; active
when reverse gear is selected
Cruise control¹
At speeds of 30 km/h and above, the system keeps the
set speed constant, provided that engine power and
engine braking effect permit it; operated via separate
steering column stalk; set speed displayed in the
driver information system
Parking system plus with selective display¹
Acoustic and visual front and rear parking system
assists with parking and manoeuvring. With selective
visual view in the MMI display of the distance to
detected objects based on the current bend radius
and direction of travel. A white segment indicates a
detected obstacle outside the driving path. Red
segments represent obstacles in the driving path. The
virtual lane display in conjunction with MMI navigation
plus with MMI touch additionally provides guidelines
at the sides which are calculated in advance depending
on the current angle of turn, thus supporting
comfortable entry and exit of parking spaces.
Measured by ultrasonic sensors integrated discreetly
in the bumpers; can optionally be ordered with
reversing camera; activated when reverse gear is
selected or via a button on the centre console
Audi pre sense basic¹
automatically initiates preventive occupant protection
measures if required; these include: tensioning the
front seat belts, closing the windows and – if fitted –
the panoramic glass sunroof; categorises driving
situations by networking different vehicle systems
Park assist with selective display¹
Virtually automatic steering process during parking. Uses ultrasonic sensors to search for suitable bay and kerb-side
parking spaces. The ideal parking path is calculated for bay parking spaces, and the ideal path for leaving the parking
space is additionally calculated for kerb-side parking spaces. The steering action is performed by the system. The
driver must accelerate and apply the brakes as well as monitor the parking process. Depending on the steering
angle, the display of the surroundings warn the driver of any obstacles at the side of the vehicle by displaying the
lane in conjunction with MMI navigation plus with MMI touch. Assisted parking is now even possible in smaller
parking spaces and bend areas. Parking in several moves is supported. Can optionally be ordered with reversing
camera; activated via means of a button on the centre console

the luggage compartment lid; activated when reverse gear is selected or via a button on the centre console
Audi pre sense front¹
Enhanced brake assist warns of any imminent threat
of collision with the vehicle in front. Can initiate
partial braking action or boost the driver’s braking
action if necessary. In addition, full braking action is
initiated at speeds below 30 km/h if there is danger
of collision with a stationary or moving vehicle in order
to reduce the speed of the collision or to avoid the
collision if possible. Audi pre sense front can be
deactivated via the MMI car menu.
adaptive cruise control including Audi pre sense front¹
Vehicles ahead are detected with the aid of a radar
sensor. The distance is kept more or less constant in
the control range by braking and acceleration. Control
range for manual transmission from around 30 to
150 km/h, S tronic 0 to 150 km/h and with optional
assistance package extended to 200 km/h; braking to a
stop and automated restart at driver’s request possible
with S tronic. 4 distance levels/driving modes can be
selected (efficiency, comfort, dynamic and auto).
Including Audi pre sense front; operation of adaptive
cruise control via separate steering column stalk.
Audi pre sense front can be deactivated via the MMI
car menu.
Audi active lane assist¹
helps you to keep in lane by means of gentle steering
intervention. The lane compliance assistant is
triggered when the driver starts to cross detected
lane markings without activating an indicator. The
system provides assistance between speeds of around
60 and 250 km/h. Steering vibration can be adjusted if
the driver wishes; camera-based traffic sign recognition
is included in conjunction with MMI navigation plus
with MMI touch. Including high-beam assist; activated
by means of a button on the steering column stalk of
the indicator
Audi side assist¹
warns by means of an LED display on the relevant
exterior mirror of any situations assessed as critical
for changing lanes. 2 radar sensors detect vehicles
approaching from behind at the side and measure the
distance and the difference in speed. The lane change
assistant provides support in the speed range from
around 30 km/h. One-off activation via MMI car menu
The model-specific standard and optional equipment can be found in the index from page 98 onwards.
Camera-based recognition of traffic signs¹, ²
Traffic sign recognition for overtaking bans and speed
limits as well as temporary speed limit displays within
the viewing range of the camera. Automatically shown
in the display of the instrument cluster. Situationbased evaluation for wet conditions, speed limits
displayed depending on the time of the day, road
works and trailer use³. Limits not detected by the
camera are evaluated with the aid of Audi connect
navigation data and displayed in the instrument
cluster. The system is purely for your information, no
action is taken and no warning is given if the displayed
speed is exceeded.
Assistance package¹
combines the following assistance systems:
▪ parking system plus with selective display or on
request park assist with selective display, each with
optional reversing camera
▪ adaptive cruise control with extended control range
(manual transmission from around 30 to 200 km/h,

⁴ Unladen vehicle weight includes driver (68 kg), luggage (7 kg) and fuel tank 90 % full, calculated in accordance
with the current version of EC Directive 92/21/EEC. Optional equipment may increase the car’s unladen weight
and drag coefficient, whereupon the possible payload limit and the top speed will be reduced accordingly.
⁵ The engine’s power output always decreases with increasing altitude. At 1,000 m above sea level, and for every
additional 1,000 m, deduct 10 % from the weight of the outfit (trailer load limit + gross weight of the towing
vehicle). Figure for trailer load limit applies to factory-fitted trailer towing hitch. If using the vehicle with a
trailer towing hitch for commercial purposes, a digital tachograph may be required under certain conditions.
⁶ A vehicle’s fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions do not just depend on how efficiently the vehicle uses the fuel,
but are also influenced by driving behaviour and other non-technical factors. CO₂ is the greenhouse gas primarily
responsible for global warming.

Discover
The Audi experience
The fascination of Audi can be experienced in many
different ways. Audi City in London, for example, gives
you digital access to all models at their actual size and
in real time. And of course it is always worth visiting
one of the major motor shows. This is where Audi always
presents its new models and invites you to take a look
at how the future is being shaped with “Vorsprung
durch Technik”. Anyone interested in seeing how Audi is
already putting this into practice will find fascinating
insight in the “Vorsprung durch Technik” online special
at www.audi-me.com. But a look back can also be
rewarding: at the Audi museum mobile in Ingolstadt,
history and high-tech go hand in hand. A total of 130 historic
exhibits and state-of-the-art forms of presentation
make for a thrilling symbiosis. Plus, Audi driving
experience allows you to live the excitement and
countless possibilities of current Audi models. Here,
pure driving enjoyment is combined with valuable
learning effects. This is ensured by a team of specially
trained and highly qualified instructors who provide
practical tips to help you optimise your driving skills. All
this can now also be enjoyed at the recently opened Audi
driving experience center in Neuburg, near Ingolstadt.
Facilities here include a circuit of up to 3.4 kilometres
that features challenging combinations of bends, a
30,000 m² dynamic driving area and an offroad section
where Q models can be put through their paces.
