Strong driving dynamics are an important feature of the Audi A4 model line. Within its segment, both sporty driving pleasure and comfort are key factors with regard to suspension tuning. An A4 – Avant and Sedan – is designed to be fun to drive on winding roads as well as being an ideal automobile with its excellent ride comfort for long distances.
These properties are based not least on the precise electromechanical steering and the newly developed five-link front and rear axles. An additional advantage is that driving dynamics can be adjusted to each situation. Audi drive select influences the mapping of the power steering and accelerator pedal as well as the optional variable suspension. This makes the A4 models highly confident on highways and agile on winding country roads.
The decision to order variable shock absorbers makes the car more distinctive in terms of ride comfort as well. For the first time, the driver can select between two suspension settings. One of them is tuned for a more sporty and dynamic driving style, while the other has its emphasis more on comfort.
