The everyday usability of the RS 4 Avant is also demonstrated by its extensive infotainment offering, which ensures passengers remain fully entertained during journeys. The optionally available MMI Navigation plus with MMI touch includes an 8.3-inch monitor with a resolution of 1,024 x 480 pixels. In addition to a DVD drive and a 10 GB flash memory, the high-end system also features two card readers, an AUX-IN connection and a USB connection with charging function. The Audi connect hardware module is also included. This module connects the high-performance Avant to the Internet using LTE technology. Thanks to the Audi connect SIM, which is permanently installed in the car, the flat-rate data package for the connect services including Europe-wide roaming is free of charge for three years. Passengers can browse the Internet with their mobile devices via the optionally available Wi-Fi hotspot.
The first car-to-X technologies are also included with the new RS 4 Avant, with traffic sign and road hazard information services. These services connect the car to other Audi models so that they can exchange information via the Audi connect SIM in almost real time.
The free Audi MMI connect app offers many other functions such as transferring the calendar from a smartphone to the MMI. Aupeo! and Napster offer access to countless songs and audio books, as well as over 4,000 Internet radio stations. Destinations from Google Maps, points of interest and entries from the “Travel” service can be transferred from your smartphone to your car’s navigation system using the app.
The functions included in the standard Audi connect safety & service package are also convenient and informative. With the included remote functions, the driver can view the vehicle status and parking position remotely via the Audi MMI connect app, and even lock or unlock the car. The package also includes the new functions emergency call, online roadside assistance and Audi service request.
The Audi smartphone interface integrates iOS and Android cell phones into a specially developed environment in MMI via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Audi phone box connects the smartphone to the vehicle antenna for improved reception quality and inductively charges the smartphone via wireless charging according to the Qi‑standard.
The optional Bang & Olufsen Sound System with 3D Sound makes full use of the vehicle’s dimensions. The heart of the system is a 755-watt, 16-channel amplifier, which controls the 19 loudspeakers. Two subwoofers behind the side panels in the rear generate the bass. The music sounds like a concert hall.
