In the new RS 7 Sportback (combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 11.6 – 11.4 (20.3 – 20.6 US mpg); combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 265 – 261 (426.5 – 420.0 g/mi)), Audi offers more than 30 driver assist systems, making driving even safer, more comfortable and more efficient. The systems are split into two packages: the Tour and the City. The Audi assist package plus integrates all both packages.
The adaptive cruise assist (ACA) is the most important system in the Tour assist package. It adds a lane-tracking function that also helps out in traffic jams to the adaptive cruise control (ACC). At speeds between 0 and 250 km/h (155.3 mph), the system keeps the new Audi RS 7 Sportback at the desired distance to the vehicle ahead. It also makes slight steering corrections to help the driver to stay in the lane and provides longitudinal guidance through road construction sites by means of the narrowed road assist.
The Audi pre sense basic and Audi pre sense front safety systems are fitted as standard. They detect collision hazards all around the car and initiate targeted preventive measures—whether maximum braking, adjusting the seats or tightening the belts. Audi pre sense front includes a warning and braking function for vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists. The emergency assist brings the car to a stop if the driver is no longer able to do so.
Behind the assistance systems in the new RS 7 Sportback are the central driver assistance controller (zFAS) and a portfolio of sensors that complement each other with their respective strengths. The data from the various sensors flow together in the zFAS. With its high-end processors, the tablet-sized computer continually computes a differentiated image of the vehicle’s surroundings. This centralized environment model enables the assistance systems to further improve their performance compared to the predecessor model, for example, when they detect the end of a traffic jam and initiate braking. Also, navigation is even more precise, because the sensor data fusion locates your own car down to the exact lane.
