The latest premium executive sedan from Ingolstadt is now here
The all-new Audi A4 has finally arrived in the country with PGA Cars, the official distributor of Audi cars in the Philippines, officially unveiling the new-generation premium executive sedan last week. The all-new A4, now with the B9 platform, is more powerful, more efficient and more intelligent, features a much lighter body although its body seems to have grown.
The all-new Audi A4 features numerous premium technologies that set the bar higher for its segment. Elegant design blends with innovative technologies, while lightweight construction meets new, efficient drivetrain solutions. As a result, the all-new A4 delivers a truly high-tech experience.
Powering the all-new A4 is a 2.0-liter, inline-4 turbocharged diesel engine that delivers 150 horsepower and 320 Newton-meters of torque. Mated to a 7-speed, S tronic dual-clutch transmission, the all-new, front-wheel drive A4 2.0 TDI S tronic runs the 0 to 100 kph sprint in 8.7 seconds, and goes on to a top speed of 220 kph.
Shod with 245/35 R19 low-profile tires, the all-new A4 2.0 TDI S tronic has a stance that exudes confidence on the road. The front and rear designs are characterized by horizontal lines that emphasize the car’s width, while the flowing design with concise lines communicates the sporty elegance of Audi. The single-frame grille is broad and flat, which, along with the LED headlights and LED daytime running lights, provide the visual Audi trademark.
The all-new A4 2.0 TDI S tronic is characterized by its impressively well-balanced sportiness: sprightly and performance-oriented on one hand, while comfortable and luxurious on the other. The chassis and the steering system filter out unwanted car movements brought about by road imperfections, but in the process, still offer feedback to the driver through the 3-spoke, leather-wrapped, multi-function sports steering wheel with shift paddles.
This advancement in performance is based on the newly-developed five-link suspension and power steering system. Extremely lightweight, they lay the foundation for the dynamic behavior and first-class ride comfort of the all-new A4, and at the same time, reduce fuel consumption.
The interior, on the other hand, features all of the strengths typical of the brand – superb workmanship, finely coordinated colors and materials, and logical, intuitive controls.
Operation has also become even more intuitive with Audi drive select and the new Audi MMI Navigation Plus. Located on the center console, the MMI control has been redesigned and serves as the main control element. A touchpad is integrated in the MMI control panel for the infotainment system, which is composed of the MMI Navigation Plus with MMI Touch, and a 7-inch multimedia interface.
The Audi virtual cockpit, being 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 designed effects.
The all-new Audi A4 also sets standards in its class, thanks to numerous safety and assistance systems. Dual front airbags are complemented by front side airbags and full curtain airbags, while park assist, parking aid plus, service indicator and flat tire indicator round out the package.
The all-new Audi A4 2.0 TDI S tronic is a true winner in its class. In terms of design and technology, it stands out with its sporty, yet balanced, character.
Alongside the all-new Audi A4 2.0 TDI S tronic, Audi Philippines also presented the new Audi A7 3.0 TFSI quattro S-Line and the new Audi Q3.
The Sportback in the local Audi line-up, the new Audi A7 3.0 TFSI quattro S-Line is propelled by a 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine that delivers 333 horsepower and 440 Newton-meters of torque, which is coursed through a 7-speed, S tronic dual-clutch transmission and quattro all-wheel drive. This powerhouse brings the car from a standstill to 100 kph in 5.3 seconds, and to a top speed of 250 kph. The new Audi A7 boasts of Audi drive select and new LED headlights and taillights, and being an S-Line, has sportier bumpers and a rear diffuser, and is wrapped in 265/35 R20 tires for that aggressive-yet-sleek look.
For the Ingolstadt-based carmaker’s fighter in the small premium SUV segment, the new Audi Q3 is powered by a 1.4 TFSI engine that offers 150 hp and 250 Nm of torque. The engine features the highly-innovative cylinder on demand (COD) system, which reduces fuel consumption by up to 20 percent when the Q3 is driven moderately. At low to moderate load and engine speed, COD deactivates cylinders two and three by closing the valves, and shutting off fuel injection. The engine runs as a two-cylinder engine until the driver presses down harder on the gas pedal. This front-wheel drive SUV has a 6-speed, S tronic dual-clutch transmission that helps it go from 0 to 100 kph in 8.9 seconds, and to a top speed of 204 kph. It features a new hexagonal grille, as well as new LED daytime running lights and taillights.
Both refreshed, the new Audi A7 and Audi Q3 represent the four-ringed brand’s never-ending pursuit of advancement through technology.
To experience the all-new Audi A4, the new A7, and the new Q3, drop by at any of the Audi Philippines showrooms located in Greenhills, Bonifacio Global City and Alabang.
