$36,000 Base Model (MSRP) 27/37 MPG Fuel Economy

Advanced features including Audi Drive Select, enabling throttle, steering and suspension characteristics to be tailored to suit the driver's preferences.

The new Audi A4 will reach its first customers in early 2008.

Refinements including an electro-mechanical parking brake and an intelligent key system, plus a sophisticated three-zone climate control, a 180-watt CD audio system with MMI control logic and 6.5" color display, rear acoustic parking, automatic headlight and wiper operation and aluminium interior trim.

Options will include striking A5 Coupe-style LED daytime running lights, ventilated `climate comfort' seats, a 505-watt Bang & Olufsen audio system and the acclaimed Audi DVD satellite navigation system with TMC congestion avoidance technology.

The very latest driver aids will also be available on the options list. At the touch of a button, the Audi Drive Select system enables accelerator pedal response, transmission shift points, power steering assistance and shock absorber characteristics to be adjusted to suit preferences or prevailing conditions.

Audi Side Assist uses sensors to warn of vehicles approaching in mirror blind spots, while Audi Lane Assist guards against unintentional lane changes by activating steering wheel vibrations to alert the driver.

The front axle has been repositioned 154mm further forwards than the existing A4. Complemented by a new state-of-the-art suspension and steering configuration, this stable foundation permits outstanding handling balance and agility, which can be further enhanced by the latest quattro four-wheel-drive system with 40:60 front-to-rear torque split.

From a practical perspective, the lengthened wheelbase enables a 36mm increase in rear legroom and a 20 liter boost in trunk capacity.
