5 millionth car rolled off the production line - Audi A4 - Model Avant 3.0 TDI Quattro. This color Misano Red car was manufactured at the Audi factory in Ingolstadt in March 2011.
After four years of production, the third generation got exposed to restyling. The car has received upgraded engines and chassis, and a slightly modified exterior. The car became â€œtallerâ€ for a few millimeters in length and height. The hood became more curved.
Interior was refreshed with additional chrome inserts that appeared on buttons and steering wheel. The package also includes 18-inch, or 19-inch alloy wheels, which can be ordered additionally. Except of these changes, everything else is the same: easy to read instruments in their original place, trip computer in Russian language and MMI system comfortable joystick. The trunk retained the same capacity - 480 liters (total of 962 liters with the rear seats folded) for the sedan and 490 - for wagon Avant.
Engine range consists of six diesel (TDI) and four petrol (TFSI) engines in 23. All engines are supercharged with direct injection; start-stop system and the recuperation system are the part of a standard fitting for all variants. Due to these features the average fuel consumption is reduced by 11%.
New turbocharged petrol engine of 1.8 liters for Audi A4 is available now, which comes in two versions - with 120 and 170 hp. The top-end 3.0-liter gasoline engine TFSI stands apart from all. It has 272 hp as version for Audi A4 and 333 hp, which is a version for sports S4. As for diesels, here you can find the following options: 2.0-liter TDI with 136, 163 and 177 hp, and the 3.0-liter engine, which gives out 204 or 245 hp, depending on the version.
For a family in the Audi A4 Quattro Â® all-wheel drive the self-locking center differential is used. In normal driving it distributes the torque to the rear wheels in a ratio of 40% to 60%. If necessary, redistribution occurs in the shortest possible time. Repartition of torque helps the center differential to work, using the braking mechanisms and giving a better handling to the car.
Following the "older" models, A4 is equipped with modern safety systems: now electronic watches the markings, traffic signs, the car automatically slows down before the roadblock at the speed up to 30 km/h, and monitors the reactions and condition of the driver, depending on the driving style. In addition, there is a system for tracking the dead zones.
