In version 2.0 TFSI quattro AMT with a power 249 hp
consumption is slightly higher, but still quite modest – 6.1 l / 100 km.

Upgraded fully independent suspension front and rear, lightweight construction chassis with aluminum parts, led to a decrease in noise performance, improve manageability, and increase comfort in general.
Vehicle equipped with a standard electromechanical power steering optionally – dynamic change in force as a function of speed.
Audi Drive Select system allows one-touch buttons to change the characteristics of the systems of the car – is the standard for vehicles with an engine capacity of 190 hp
