Bang & Olufsen® Sound System with 3D sound
The available Bang & Olufsen® Sound System with 3D sound provides concert hall definition with 19 speakers, 16-channel amplifier and 755 watts of power. 3D sound can be generated from a variety of sources and can create a previously unknown feeling of spaciousness within the vehicle by reproducing sound in its most original form.
Audi pre sense® basic and city
Have some sense
Both standard on the 2018 A4, Audi pre sense® basic intervenes by helping secure the vehicle during unusual or emergency maneuvers, while Audi pre sense® city helps detect vehicles and pedestrians at speeds of up to 52 mph, increasing drivers’ awareness of surroundings and helping prevent accidents.
Rear cross traffic assist
Also included with available Audi side assist with Audi pre sense® rear, this feature uses rear sensors to help scan the area behind the vehicle and sides while a rear view camera helps provide additional visibility when backing up, as in reversing out of a perpendicular parking space. In critical situations, a warning tone and brake jolt can be applied to help prompt the driver to stop the vehicle.
Traffic sign recognition
Available with the Prestige trim, Traffic sign recognition is a camera-based system that helps detect speed limit signs and displays the information in the available Audi virtual cockpit. For example, current detected speed limits are shown in the instrument display.
Audi adaptive cruise control with Traffic jam assist
Audi adaptive cruise control with Traffic jam assist automatically maintains a preset distance from the vehicle in front, and brakes and accelerates to help maintain that distance.
Active lane assist
Audi active lane assist is standard on the 2018 Audi A4 with Prestige trim. Using the available camera mounted in front of the rear view mirror housing and sophisticated processing software, it observes lane markings and can provide gentle steering wheel warning vibrations if it is determined that the vehicle is approaching the edge of the lane without signaling.
Audi pre sense® rear
Standard with the Premium Plus trim package, Audi pre sense® rear monitors traffic following the vehicle. Based on the vehicle’s own speed, the system can calculate the speed of the following cars. If a critical situation is sensed, the system can apply measures like partially closing the sunroof and side windows, and pre-tensioning front safety belts.
