The Items that Continues to Amaze US
Audi has been offering the Virtual Cockpit feature for a few years, and this system still garners our attention and makes us want to drive an Audi when we hear about it. The Audi A4 can be had with this system which uses a futuristic gauge cluster in a 12.3-inch TFT display that will let you have the configuration and the look that you want to enjoy. You’ll see the Google Earth satellite view of the road ahead and when used, the adaptive cruise control will use the maps to see the upcoming curves and ramps to adjust the speed accordingly.
Get the Items You Want in the Audi A4
The base model of the Audi A4 is the Premium trim which gives you tri-zone automatic climate controls, heated front seats, leather upholstery, and a power sunroof. You’ll have the electronics of the MMI infotainment system, a rotary controller, collision mitigation braking, pedestrian detection, push-button starting, HID headlights, LED accent lights, a rearview camera, rain-sensing wipers, and LED taillights. Other items you’ll see include 17-inch alloy wheels, paddle shifters, and automatic start/stop to help you save fuel.
Moving On Up
The Premium Plus model of the Audi A4 will give you the Virtual Cockpit as a standard feature. You’ll also see a seven-inch infotainment screen or an 8.2-inch model with navigation for your infotainment desires. The sport-suspension is optional and it lowers the ride height by about an inch. Add the adaptive damping suspension to the mix in the S4 and you’ll have a lowered car by a half-inch and the benefits of upgraded shocks to give you the ride you want in Comfort, Normal, and Sport settings.
