Self Study Program 484 – Audi A7 Sportback – Occupant protection, Infotainment, Air conditioning

VAG SSP 484. The process of developing a new vehicle involves numerous crash tests. These are initially run in a virtual environment on the computer and finally on the actual car at the Audi safety centre. The engineers of AUDI AG not only evaluate the results of our own in-house tests, but also actual accidents recorded by the accident researchers and scientists at the Audi Accident Research Unit (AARU).

The AARU was founded in 1998 and is working with police and doctors to develop as exact a knowledge of accidents as possible. Using this information we are constantly working to improve our tests. The focus of Audi vehicle safety is people. Because they have the responsibility for protecting something very valuable, only our most exceptional staffare entrusted with the safety of our vehicles.

We deliver on our promise of “Vorsprung durch Technik” every-where you look in an Audi – for example in the MMI Multi Media Interface with retractable fold-away screen. You can use the MMI to operate a variety of in-car media, the navigation system and other comfort and convenience functions.

The Google Earth map in the MMI Navigation plus system is a new feature. The photo-realistic display gives you an even clearer view and makes getting to your destination even simpler. Another great feature of the optional MMI Navigation plus system is the WLAN hotspot. Occupants can simultaneously connect up to eight devices – such as a laptop, Apple iPad or Netbook – to the Internet via the WLAN module integrated in the vehicle and by UMTS. Follow your intuition – and you will reach your goal.

Another feature of the new Audi A7 Sportback is that of consistency. The elegant exterior design carries over into the high-end interior. The interior concept of the Audi A7 Sportback cossets the driver and the passengers, giving them a feeling of complete security. The comfortable seats are finished in high-grade materials and provide excellent support.

The Audi A7 Sportback is optionally available with leather comfort seats including a memory function. Depending on version, these seats have a seat heater, seat ventilation and multi-level massage function. There is nothing more inspiring than a moment of tranquility.
