A4 range enhancements continued into 2007

Availability of the equipment enhancements originally offered across the A4 Saloon and Avant range until December 31 st 2006 has been extended until March 31 st 2007.

Until then, all standard A4 Saloon and Avant models will be equipped to SE specification at no extra cost, bringing upgrades such as 17-inch 16-spoke alloy wheels, a Concert II radio with single CD player and cruise control. Upgrading to an S line sports model will also carry a reduced premium of £750, and adds features including 18-inch 5-arm alloy wheels, S line body styling, sports seats, sports suspension and a sports multi-function steering wheel.

A4 SE and S line and S4 quattro models will also be fitted with a premium BOSE sound system upgrade at no extra cost until the end of March.

A4 Saloon and Avant OTR prices range from £19,900 to £29,325, and S4 quattro models from £37,415 to £38,565.

Audi Range To Be Fully iPOD Enabled

A6, A8 and Q7 raise the tone with new Audi music interface.

A new Audi music interface will connect iPod players to A6, A8 and Q7 models via their Multi Media Interface (MMI) control systems from January 2007.

Available as an optional extra expected to cost in the region of £200, the new music interface enables iPod units to connect with the car through a storage unit mounted in the glove box in A6 and A8 models and in the rear centre armrest in the Q7. Track, artist and album information is displayed on the central MMI screen and selections can be made via the rotary and push-button MMI controls or through the multifunction steering wheel.

Once the new system comes on stream the entire Audi range will offer the convenience of digital music playback. iPod connectivity is already available for all A3, A4 and TT variants.

New Specification Across The A3 Range
  • Enhancements to standard, SE, Sport and S line models
  • Eyecatching new colour schemes for new 265PS S3

The perennially popular Audi A3 range - which numbers 27 models priced from £14,995 to £26,975 - moves into 2007 with the benefit of specification enhancements at every level.

Standard versions have been upgraded to include a Chorus radio with single CD player, SE models move up from a 16-inch alloy wheel to a new 17-inch 16-spoke design and Sport specification now includes a change to a 17-inch 5-spoke wheel.

In the cabin, S line models, originally fitted with leather and fabric combination upholstered sports seats, will now benefit from full Vienna leather trim.

At the head of the range, the new 265PS S3 quattro gains a variety of vivid new colour schemes, including Sprint Blue, Imola Yellow and the pictured Solar Orange, which are available at an extra cost of £485.
