Virtual Cockpit|LED Headlights
The Audi S4 Avant is a remarkably effective and seriously quick estate car. Most certainly the driver’s weapon of choice having a 3.0 litre Turbo charged V6 engine under the bonnet producing 349bhp. This is coupled with a super-slick 8 speed S-Tronic double clutch gearbox and Audi’s infamous Quattro 4 wheel drive which launches you from 0-62 in a mere 4.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 155 mph. Our fabulous example is finished in Daytona Grey with aluminium roof rails and side mirrors, with gloss black window surrounds and factory privacy glass. The upgraded 19″ Audi Sport alloys wrapped in brand new Continental premium tyres are a must have option that gives the car a more sleek look and better stance than the standard items. On the inside you lower yourself into the full diamond cross stitched, electrically adjustable, heated nappa leather S4 sports seats. The leather flat bottomed multi-function steering wheel contains the functions for the telephone, DAB radio, media inputs and the fabulous Virtual Cockpit. The Virtual Cockpit toggles the view in the instrument binnacle and can show the display as a full satellite navigation map , change the rev counter and speedometer to the middle of the large screen, or have media input or telephone displayed. It also has the facility to display the map with Google Maps which looks fantastic. Touch sensitive 3 Zone climate control on the centre console controls air flow and climate, on the same bank of controls is the Audi Drive Select with options of comfort, efficiency, dynamic and individual settings. The centre dial with 4 function buttons allows control of the car’s menu, that can change all settings to individualise the car to personal taste. As with most high specification Audis, the controls are completely intuitive throughout. Practicality, performance and style all wrapped up in a highly polished package. Superb throughout and built with Audi’s trademark “chiselled from granite” build quality. A compelling ownership proposition.
