The Audi A5 Sportback* sets new standards in its class with an extensive choice of driver assistance systems. Some of the solutions are standard features, while the options can be ordered individually or are grouped together in the “Parking”, “City” and “Tour” packages. An intelligent combination of different technologies enhances safety, comfort and efficiency. Meanwhile the brand with the four rings is also taking the next step toward piloted driving.
adaptive cruise control Stop&Go including traffic jam assist
adaptive cruise control (ACC) Stop&Go including traffic jam assist plays a pivotal role here. This system relieves the driver in slow-moving traffic at speeds of up to 65 km/h (40.4 mph). It assumes the tasks of braking and accelerating the car, and also temporarily takes charge of steering on better roads. The car automatically follows the preceding line of traffic, within the system limits. The Stop&Go function brakes the vehicle to a stop and lets it start off again automatically at the driver’s request.
The predictive efficiency assistant, unique in this vehicle class, helps by offering drivers situation-specific tips on how to save fuel. It evaluates GPS information in the immediate vicinity of the car. On highways it can improve fuel economy by up to ten percent in this way. When ACC is active, the assistant automatically adjusts the speed set by the driver in anticipation of the situation. The system detects bends, roundabouts, junctions, descents, settlements and speed limit signs.
Assistants for every situation
Audi offers a whole raft of innovative technologies for enhanced safety. The A5 Sportback comes standard with the Audi pre sense city system. It monitors the road at speeds of up to 85 km/h (52.8 mph), detects other vehicles and pedestrians, and initiates full braking in an emergency.
Collision avoidance assist intervenes if the car has to drive around an obstacle to avoid an accident. Based on data from the front camera, ACC and radar sensors, it computes a recommended driving line within a fraction of a second. As the first line of action, the assistant alerts the driver to the danger with a warning jolt. As soon as the driver steers, the system helps to change lanes by intervening in the power steering system with specific intervention.
Turn assist monitors oncoming traffic when turning left over a driving speed range from two to ten km/h (1.2 to 6.2 mph). In a dangerous situation, it brakes the car to a stop. The system comes on in the background as soon as the driver activates the turn signal to turn across the carriageway.
The lineup is rounded out by other assistance systems such as exit warning, park assist, cross traffic assist rear, camera-based traffic sign recognition, Audi active lane assist and Audi side assist.
