A comprehensive infotainment offering ensures the greatest level of entertainment on-board the new RS 5 Coupé (combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 8.7; combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 197). The optionally available MMI navigation plus with MMI touch features 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 equally included. It connects the
high-performance Coupé with 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.
With the traffic sign and hazard information services, the first Car-to-X technologies are already on-board in the new RS 5 Coupé. These connect the car to other Audi models so that they can exchange information almost in real time via the Audi connect SIM.
With traffic sign information, the on-board camera analyzes speed limits and reports the data via the cellular phone network to a server in the cloud. The server collects the data, processes it and makes it available to other Audi drivers. Driver assistance systems use this information for predictive and efficient cruise control. The information also flows into updates to Audi navigation maps.
With the hazard information service, cars warn one another about accidents, broken-down vehicles, slippery road surfaces or impaired visibility. The system does this by analyzing multiple parameters, such as the in-car electronics, data from the rain and light sensors, the headlights and the operating mode of the windshield wipers. It reports an accident or breakdown as soon as the eCall system makes an emergency call or an airbag deploys. The system forwards saved information to the cloud. The warnings then appear in the instrument cluster and are read aloud as voice messages in the car.
The free Audi MMI connect app offers many other features, such as transferring your smartphone’s calendar to the MMI. It provides access to countless music and audio book titles via Aupeo! and Napster as well as to over 4,000 internet radio stations. Destinations from Google Maps, points of interest (POIs) and the 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 likewise convenient and informative. With the remote functions which it includes, the driver can use the Audi MMI connect app to remotely access the vehicle status and call up the location where the vehicle is parked, as well as 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 cellphones via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto respectively into an environment within the MMI developed specially for them. The Audi phone box connects the smartphone to the vehicle antenna for improved reception quality and charges the smartphone inductively via wireless charging according to the Qi‑standard.
Concerning the topic of hi-fi, too, the RS 5 Coupé sets new standards. The optional Bang & Olufsen Sound System with 3D sound introduces the spatial dimension of height. It utilizes four additional loudspeakers, two each in the instrument panel and the A-pillars. The music sounds like it is being played in a concert hall. The heart of the system is a 755-watt, 16-channel amplifier that drives 20 speakers. Two subwoofers behind the side panel trims in the rear generate the bass.
