HDD navigation for stress-free motoring

With the optional hard drive based (HDD) navigation system, being lost becomes a thing of the past. Simply enter a destination using the Multi Media Interface (MMI) in the centre console, or just say where you want to go, using the advanced voice recognition system.

The HDD navigation system has a 40GB hard drive meaning that maps load incredibly fast and there’s an abundance of detail (including 3D buildings in cities and photo realistic 3D landmarks) when you zoom in. You can also specify modifications to the route such as avoiding or using motorways, toll roads and ferries. And you can recall favourite and recent destinations which are stored in your address book.

The system can also adjust the route you’re taking dynamically based on the latest traffic situation. It receives RDS-TMC (Traffic Message Channel) automatically so it knows about hold-ups before you do and, if dynamic navigation is active, the system automatically recalculates the route.

Your own personal jukebox

If you choose the HDD-based Satellite Navigation system, you can also create your own personal jukebox. With 10GB of its hard drive set aside for music, you download via CDs, USB sticks or SD memory cards up to 4,000 music tracks.


Pure listening pleasure

Have you ever arrived at your destination only to wait in the car, on your own, just until a certain piece of music has finished? If you opt for the superb Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System in your Audi Q7, it might be prudent to get into the habit of setting off a little earlier.

With the Audi Q7 and the Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System you get the quintessential driving and listening experience combined.

Audi Music Interface: your music goes with you

A very wide range of portable music devices can integrate with your car via the optional Audi Music Interface. Once installed, they can be controlled with the Multi Media Interface (MMI) or multifunction steering wheel (depending on the car’s equipment). Supported devices include USB memory sticks, portable hard discs, mobile phones, and Apple iPods – even portable cassette players.

And it’s not just the audio signal that’s transmitted. With compatible devices, detailed track information is displayed.

Your own personal jukebox

If you have chosen the HDD-based Satellite Navigation system, the good news is you don’t actually have to take any of these things with you. Simply download, via CDs, USB sticks or SD memory cards up to 4,000 music tracks on to its hard drive and create your own personal jukebox.


Keeping your hands on the wheel

A Bluetooth connection is available as standard on the Q7 SE and S line models.

The options:

Bluetooth Interface

Bluetooth Interface, standard on SE and S line models is a Bluetooth connection for your mobile phone. This means that your phone can be operated using the multifunction steering wheel in conjunction with the Driver’s Information System, whilst remaining in your pocket.

In addition to standard hands-free functionality such as accepting/rejecting calls and hands-free communication, mobile phone preparation provides direct access to entries and phone numbers stored in the address book of compatible phones.

Mobile phone preparation high

This innovative phone solution offers an unprecedented level of convenience, as it becomes possible to literally leave your phone ‘in your jacket pocket’ and still operate it using the car controls as outlined above. In effect, the mobile phone in your jacket pocket serves merely as a mobile SIM card reader. The phone calls are made using the car so mobile phone battery life is greatly increased and reception is improved as you are using the car’s antenna.

Crystal-clear digital radio reception

DAB digital radio not only brings phenomenal sound quality without interference but also a host of features to complement the listening experience. Alongside the audio, other data may be broadcast such as the title of the track and the name of the artist.

All available radio stations are displayed and are accessible via the MMI (Multi Media Interface) so you don’t need to spend time programming separate buttons. If you leave the range of a radio station’s DAB signal, the system will automatically switch to the analogue transmission.

Exceptional in-car entertainment

As an option, your Q7 can be equipped with a stunning rear-seat entertainment package for the pleasure of your passengers. Two seven-inch screens installed in the back of the front headrests, a six-DVD player in the boot, AUX input for devices such as games consoles for each screen and sound can be delivered via the car’s audio system or through headphone sockets (one for each screen).

Audi range ranked the UK's most secure again

Three BICSA security awards and a third consecutive overall manufacturer award for the Vorsprung durch Technik brand.

  • Audi wins third overall Manufacturer Award in British Insurance Car Security Awards, presented by the Motor Insurance Repair Research Centre, Thatcham on Wednesday June 18th
  • New A4 range voted most secure in compact executive class, S8 best in performance car class, TT Roadster best in Convertible/Roadster class 

For the third successive year Audi has stolen the show in the 2008 British Insurance Car Security Awards, not only scoring three category wins but also taking away the overall Manufacturer of the Year Award for the widest range of cars offering five star security.

The Vorsprung durch Technik brand’s commitment to anti-theft protection across its range was acknowledged by experts at a ceremony held on June 18th at the Motor Insurance Repair Research Centre in Thatcham, Berkshire.

The top BICSA award goes to the manufacturer producing the widest range of models that satisfy stringent criteria laid down by Thatcham, including the achievement of a five star rating for ‘theft of’ security and a rating of at least four stars for ‘theft from’ security.

In addition to this all-encompassing award, Audi models were also voted best-in-class in 3 of the specific model categories assessed by the experts. The all-new A4 Saloon and Avant, S8 Saloon and TT Roadster models all outclassed rivals in their considered opinion.

Director of Audi UK Jeremy Hicks welcomed the very positive result for Audi: “I am delighted that the huge investment we have channelled into protective measures for all our cars has proved its worth yet again in Thatcham. To be acknowledged as number one for car security for a third consecutive year is an achievement which Audi AG’s security team can take considerable pride in,” he said.

Award-winning security protection is achieved right across the Audi range through features including Thatcham Category 1 alarm and immobiliser technology with interior ultrasonic protection, Thatcham Category 4 locking wheel bolts, anti-tow tilt sensors, visible Vehicle Identification Numbers (VIN) and extensive marked parts.

A1 e-tron

The Audi A1 e-tron’s headline figures of 148.7 mpg fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of only 45 g/km tell only half its story.

This design study is the latest in the ‘e-tron’ model family and, like the Frankfrurt and Detroit showcars it is electronically propelled.  With a range of more than 30 miles in city traffic and a peak power of 102PS the A1 e-tron is also fun to drive.

When the battery’s energy supply is exhausted, it is recharged by an exceptionally compact “range extender” consisting of a single-rotor Wankel engine and an electrical generator with a charge rating of up to 15 kW.  This device gives the A1 e-tron an additional range of over 120 miles.

New Audi Q3 model will be the raining champion

Latest TDI version of acclaimed compact SUV with weather-beating quattro drive is expected to be the most popular of all

  • New version of sought-after compact SUV will be the 250th quattro-equipped model variant available in the UK
  • Q3 2.0 TDI quattro 140PS now available priced from £26,510 OTR to £29,260 OTR - expected to account for up to 40% of total Q3 UK sales
  • 2.0-litre TDI engine delivers 140PS at 4,200rpm and 320Nm between 1,750 and 3,200rpm, 0-62mph in 9.9 seconds, 122mph top speed, combined MPG 49.6, CO2 149g/km

As the wettest summer on record continues to reinforce the arguments in favour of quattro all-wheel-drive, Audi has just launched its 250th model equipped with this invaluable all-weather traction aid - a new ‘entry level’ version of the sought-after Q3 compact SUV. The new Q3 2.0 TDI quattro 140PS is now available to order priced from £26,510 OTR, and is expected to account for up to 40 per cent of total Q3 sales.

The new model channels the 140PS and 320Nm of torque delivered by its 2.0-litre direct injection diesel engine through a six-speed manual gearbox to the rapid-reacting quattro system. Optimised by engine start-stop and recuperation technology, the highly efficient unit can return up to 49.6mpg according to the combined cycle test, equating to CO2 output of 149g/km. Equally importantly, it can take the Q3 to 62mph from rest in 9.9 seconds and push on to a 122mph top speed where conditions allow.

As usual, SE and S line specification levels are available, the former including 17-inch alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control, a Concert audio system with 6.5-inch manually retractable colour display screen, preparation for SD card navigation, Bluetooth interface, Audi Music Interface iPod connection and light and rain sensors.

For a premium of £2,750 S line specification adds larger 18-inch alloy wheels, S line exterior and interior styling enhancements, xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lamps and LED rear tail lights.

Options include ‘steerable beam’ adaptive light technology for the xenon plus headlights, a high-beam assistant to intelligently illuminate the road ahead, the hard drive-based navigation system plus with seven-inch colour screen and 3D mapping and the side assist blind spot warning and lane assist lane departure warning driver aids.

Inside the deceptively roomy Q3 there is seating for up to five adults, and an accommodating load bay offering up to 1,365 litres of capacity thanks to split/folding rear seats.

The Q3 is the most compact member of the Audi Q Series, which also includes the recently launched new generation Q5 and the seven-seat Q7 luxury SUV with its adaptive air suspension. If more car-like proportions are preferable, but a measure of extra agility is also needed, Audi can also offer rugged allroad quattro versions of the A4 and the A6. The reassurance of quattro all-wheel-drive can, however, be enjoyed across virtually the entire breadth of the Audi range, from the A3 hatchback through to the R8 super car. On average, quattro drive is the choice of around 30 per cent of Audi customers every year.

50 mpg-plus Audi diesel sports car cleans up in Geneva

Acclaimed Audi TT Coupé and Roadster models adopt a diesel engine for the first time in their 10-year history.

Latest Audi common rail diesel engine combines torque-rich sports car punch and extraordinary efficiency in latest TT models.

  • World public debut at the Geneva Palexpo (March 6th to 16th 2008) – scheduled to open for UK order in early March 2008, priced from £26,350 OTR for summer 2008 deliveries
  • Powered by the latest 2.0 litre, four-cylinder TDI engine with ultra-efficient common rail fuel injection incorporating piezo injectors
  • Already compliant with proposed Euro 5 emissions legislation, and over 20 per cent more CO2-efficient than petrol equivalent
  • 170PS at 4,200 rpm, 350 Nm from 1,750 rpm to 2,500 rpm
  • TT TDI Coupé 0-62mph in 7.5 seconds, top speed 140mph, 53.3 mpg combined consumption, CO2 140g/km
  • TT TDI Roadster 0-62mph in 7.7 seconds, top speed 138mph, 51.3 mpg combined consumption, CO2 145g/km

The new 140mph Audi TT 2.0 TDI quattro brings 50 mpg-plus fuel economy, a 23 percent reduction in CO2 output and EU5 compliance to the 2008 Geneva Motor Show (March 6th to 16th). Far from being just a flight of fancy, the latest TT is production-ready, and opens for UK order in Coupé and Roadster body styles on Thursday March 6th, priced from £26,350 OTR. First deliveries are expected in summer 2008.

The ideal TT TDI engine not only had to complement the much-loved character of the TT, but also had to fit transversely into its compact engine bay. It has the space-efficient shape of the latest 2.0 litre, four-cylinder TDI, and includes performance and refinement-boosting common rail fuel injection incorporating advanced piezo injection technology. Launched to critical acclaim in the new A4 Saloon in 143PS form, the TT has been upgraded to 170PS with an impressive 350 Nm maximum torque output – more than even the 3.2 litre V6 petrol model.

The engine features a new turbocharger with adjustable vanes to allow rapid torque build-up, as well as a sophisticated common rail injection system, whose advanced piezo injector nozzles can perform up to five distinct injection sequences per cycle, the performance ability of the new engine dispels any doubts about its sports car compatibility.

The TT 2.0 TDI quattro Coupé easily reaches its 5,000 rpm limit, thanks to high-tech injection technology and to refinement-boosting balancer shafts. With its 6-speed manual transmission, the car takes just 7.5 seconds to reach 62mph from rest. A top speed of 140mph is possible where conditions allow, and the influence of TDI is made clear by a combined consumption figure of 53.3 mpg.

The stride forward in efficiency over the outgoing 2.0 litre TDI engine also shows in a CO2 figure of 140g/km for the Coupé – over 20 per cent less than the 2.0T FSI petrol model – and in a drastic reduction in untreated emissions of nitrogen oxides. Improvements in combustion chamber thermodynamics mean the new engine can run on up to 60 percent recycled exhaust cooled by the radiator, and ensure that the 2.0 TDI complies with proposed Euro 5 emission limits.

Lightweight Audi Space Frame® (ASF)

The impressive all-round performance of the new TT 2.0 TDI quattro is also due to its lightweight ASF aluminium and steel hybrid body shell, which contributes to impressively low kerb weights of 1,370 kg for the TT 2.0 TDI quattro Coupé, and 1,415 kg for the TT 2.0 TDI quattro Roadster.

The attention to weight-saving also proves its worth in the comfortable, agile handling of the TT which, in the best traditions of all higher torque Audis, is backed up by quattro permanent four-wheel drive. The space-age Audi magnetic ride adaptive damping system, employing specially developed dampers filled with a magnetic fluid that reacts to electrical charge, will also be available as an option for driving enthusiasts who want the very best from the aluminium-rich suspension.

Standard UK specification for the new TT 2.0 TDI quattro mirrors the familiar 2.0T FSI petrol version, offering features such as 17-inch Trapez alloy wheels, leather and Alcantara-upholstered sports seats, electronic climate control and an mp3-compatible 140 watt Audi Concert audio system with single CD drive. The Roadster adds a fully automatic electrically operated soft top and integrated wind deflector.
