Performance and suspension
S Suspension with damper control - S-specific sports suspension with adaptive shock absorbers and lowering by 15 mm, for increased driving dynamics with more direct contact with the road and sportier handling; electronically controlled adjustment of the dampers to different driving situations, dynamic or comfort-oriented configuration of the basic tuning adjustable via Audi drive select (auto / comfort / dynamic); Allows excellent driving dynamics with very good driving comfort at the same time
Audi Matrix LED headlights with LED rear lights, dynamic front and rear indicators, and headlight cleaning system. Audi Matrix LED technology provides precise, high-resolution illumination of the road. Dazzling for oncoming vehicles or vehicles in front can be considerably reduced as a result. If vehicles are detected by the camera system, the system selectively masks just the area of the detected vehicle while all other segments of the high beam remain active. Switching between the respective light distributions and regulation while oncoming traffic is passing are visible in the headlights as dynamic operations. The illumination of the vehicle’s path is significantly better, thus improving safety and comfort when driving in the dark. Lighting includes a visually upgraded daytime running lights including digital, model-dependent daytime running light signature in an innovative pixel area under the headlight. All-weather headlights with dynamic headlight adjustment and dipped beam, high beam. Includes motorway light (extending light range at high speeds), dynamic corning light (illumination on tight bends), manoeuvring light (illuminating the front side when reversing), intersection light (supporting illumination at junctions using the MMI Navigation Plus) and dynamic light sequencing of the coming home/leaving home function.

To unlock and open, simply lift the exterior door handle. Pressing the start/stop button integrated in the centre console starts and stops the engine.
Parking assist with parking system plus - In the area captured by the ultrasonic sensors, park assist helps find a suitable on-street parking space. The system calculates the best parking path for bay parking spaces (forwards and backwards), and the best parking and exiting paths for kerbside parking spaces.Through precise steering manoeuvres, the system supports you when entering or exiting parking spaces. The driver simply needs to follow the instructions on the display, change gear, accelerate, brake and monitor the entire parking process. The system even assists with parking in several moves. The visual display can, based on the steering angle, warn the driver of any obstacles at the side by showing the path. The function is activated via the park assist button on the centre console.
Adaptive cruise control - Automatic distance regulation, using radar sensors to maintain the required distance between vehicles ahead by braking and accelerating.
Camera based traffic sign recognition - Detects speed limits, no overtaking and temporary speed displays within the system's field of vision. Within the system limits, the system recognises the beginning and end of highways, motorways, localities and Traffic-calmed areas. In addition, a situation-dependent assessment in wet, fog, time-of-day speed limits, construction sites and trailer operation can be carried out. In addition, speed limits are evaluated and provided with the help of navigation data. A personalisable speed warning can be activated, which gives a visual warning if the currently permitted speed is exceeded.
Heads-up display - projects the speed and other driver-relevant information as well as warnings into the driver's direct field of vision on request; adjustable in height; enables high-contrast, multi-coloured display with minimal distraction from the road
Adaptive Cruise Assist – combines Adaptive Cruise Control with lane centre guidance to support the driver with accelerating, braking and maintaining distances, as well as helping them to stay in lane. Within system limits, Adaptive Cruise Assist uses the radar sensor built into the front of the vehicle, the front camera and the ultrasound sensor to continuously monitor the vehicle’s surroundings. The system maintains the speed and distance to the vehicle in front and conveniently helps the driver to stay in lane by means of gentle corrective steering intervention in the speed range from 0–130mph.**** This can increase ride comfort, especially on long journeys and in congested traffic situations. Restart is triggered automatically or manually after having stopped briefly. The driver remains responsible for controlling the vehicle and can override Adaptive Cruise Assist at any time.
Lane change assistant with exit warning system and rear cross traffic alert
Reversing Camera - An image of the area behind the vehicle is shown on the MMI display with dynamic display modes highlighting the calculated path (steer-angle dependent). Reversing camera is concealed in the handle strip of the luggage compartment lid.
Audio & Communication
Audi Virtual Cockpit Plus. In addition to Audi Virtual Cockpit, the digital display is upgraded to 12.3", full-HD resolution, and includes new "Dynamic" instrument display.
Bang & Olufsen Premium Sound System with 3D sound.Surround sound playback via 15 high-performance speakers including subwoofer; 16-channel amplifier with a total output of 680 watts.The new, virtual 3D sound effect creates an intense sound experience. This is generated by four loudspeakers in the instrument panel, two loudspeakers in the C-pillar and by the Fraunhofer technology Symphoria. The 3D sound can be generated with a variety of sources. In comparison to conventional stereo playback, this new concept creates an all-round sound through reflections on the windshield, which conveys a stronger "feeling in the middle". Thanks to intelligent signal processing, all occupants enjoy a sound that is optimised for their seat. The exclusive loudspeaker covers with aluminium applications ensure a perfect design experience. The sound image is permanently adjusted in accordance with the driving and background noise determined by the microphone.
