  • Stronger than ever: new #audi #ttrscoup and new #audi #ttrsroadster celebrate world premieres
  • High-tech, efficiency and top comfort: the new #audi #a4l for the Chinese market
  • Intelligent mobility solutions for megacities: #audi connected mobility concept with integrated longboard
Three new production models and a clever concept car – #audi is underscoring its role as the market leader in premium cars at #auto #china 2016. #audi is presenting the TT RS Coupé* and the TT RS Roadster* to the public for the first time at the #auto show, which runs from April 25 to May 4 in #beijing. Also making their debut are the new #audi #a4l and the #audi connected mobility concept car.

Impressive performance: The new #audi TT RS
The new five-cylinder engine in the TT RS produces a remarkable 294 kW (400 hp) of power. Together with the quattro drive, it provides for sporty driving fun with maximum traction. A jury of international motor journalists has voted the 2.5 TFSI “Engine of the Year” six times in a row. Now #audi has further developed the five-cylinder engine in all areas – with lightweight construction measures, reduced internal friction and increased power delivery. The engine’s maximum torque of 480 Nm (354.0 lb-ft) is available between 1,700 and 5,800 rpm.

The #ttrscoup accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 3.7 seconds, the Roadster in 3.9 seconds – this is on par with the performance of a supercar. #audi can govern the top speed to 250 km/h (155.3 mph) or an optional 280 km/h(174.0 mph).

In addition to its light weight, the #audi TT RS has its sporty chassis to thank for its outstanding handling. The directsteering provides close contact with the road and makes it a pleasure to drive challenging winding stretches. For the first time in a series-production #audi, Matrix OLED technology (organic light emitting diode) is used in the rear lights as an option. These emit an extremely homogeneous, high-contrast light. In addition, they offer designers entirely new possibilities for staging the light.

High-tech, elegance and top comfort: The new #audi A4 L
More space – less weight: a major distinguishing feature of the new #audi #a4l. At a length of 4.81 meters (15.8 ft) and sporting a larger wheelbase of 2.91 meters (9.5 ft) – which is four centimeters (1.6 in) more than on the previous model – passengers travel in full-size vehicle comfort with the spaciousness that comes with it. Despite this, the vehicle’s unladen weight has dropped significantly – by as much as 110 kg (242.5 lb) compared with its predecessor. The highly streamlined shape of the midsize sedan, with a drag coefficient of 0.23, also makes a huge contribution to efficiency.

The new sedan offers many intelligent technologies. All important data can also be shown in the #audi virtual cockpit, which is available as an optional feature. The range of driver assistance systems sets standards in the class. For the first time ever, #audi is supplying Matrix LED technology with dynamic turn signals for the #audi #a4l. As standard, the car is equipped with xenon plus units for illuminating the road ahead.

Two TFSI engines are available for the new #a4l in #china. Customers can choose a 2.0 TFSI with either 140 kW (190 hp) or 185 kW (252 hp).
Intelligent mobility for megacities: the #audi connected mobility concept

The #audi connected mobility concept car, which is making its debut at #auto #china 2016, is based on the new Q3 that launches on the Chinese market this year. It offers sporty and multifunctional mobility for metropolises with millions of residents, and it was specially tailored for markets with growing urbanization such as #china.

Integrated into the rear bumper is a multifunctional longboard that is 1.05 meters (3.4 ft) in length. The infotainment system of the concept car computes the fastest mobility mix based on real-time traffic data that takes the destination and the planned arrival time into account. If the longboard is the faster mode of transportation for getting to the destination, the system recommends that the driver continue the trip with the electrically powered board. The longboard’s battery has a range of more than 12 km (7.5 mi) at a top speed of 30 km/h (18.6 mph).
