Audi is treating its British customers of A6 and A7 Sportback with a new Technology Package option, offering high-tech infotainment and safety features.
The package costs £3,250 for A6 models and £3,750 for the A7 Sportback, saving at least £1,085 when compared with specifying the options individually. It combines up to nine different features including Google Earth navigation mapping, in-car Wi-Fi and the Audi pre-sense multi-level safety system.
It’s like an all-in-one package with the best of what Audi technology department has to offer right now.
The list of entertainment and information enhancements included in the Technology Package Advanced includes MMI navigation plus with the MMI Touch fingertip recognition system, a colour Driver’s Information System, Audi Music Interface iPod connection and a Bluetooth mobile phone interface giving access to Google Earth navigation maps and creating an in-car Wi-Fi hotspot. In the A7 Sportback, this list is also supplemented by a sophisticated head-up display which projects navigation and entertainment information onto the windscreen so that it appears to float around two metres ahead of the car.
The online services are particularly amazing, especially the MMI navigation plus that utilizes Nvidia 3D graphics to provide you with most realistic maps on the car’s main screen. Another remarkable feature is the fingerprint recognition. The driver can enter a destination or a telephone number by drawing letters and numbers on the touch-sensitive control panel with a finger.
