Audi is starting sales with attractive equipment packages for the Audi A1 and distinctive styling packages for the Audi A4 and A5 - the new Audi Q7 and Q8 edition models will follow from summer. In addition to the “S line competition” equipment line, Audi has given the A1 Sportback 40 TFSI an increase in output from 147 to 152 kW (207 PS).
Lifting for Audi A1, A4, A5, Q7, Q8
Since its market launch in 1, the Audi A2010 Sportback has proven its qualities not only in urban areas, but also on longer journeys. The most recent win in the Auto Trophy 2020 readers' poll in the “Auto Zeitung” category in the city car category underscores the importance of the most compact Audi model. For the new model year 2022, the most powerful model, the Audi A1 Sportback 40 TFSI with 152 kW (207 hp) and 320 Nm of torque, can be ordered - an increase of five kW as part of the adaptation to current emissions standards.
In addition to the increase in performance, Audi offers the “S line competition” equipment package and the color stitching package in red for the sportiest compact model, which emphasizes the sporty character of the exterior and interior with discreet but unmistakable features. In addition to the Audi A1 Sportback 40 TFSI, the “S line competition” equipment package can now also be ordered for the 35 TFSI and 30 TFSI.
The package includes platinum-gray exterior mirrors and, for the Ascari blue color variant, also platinum-gray foil-wrapped Audi rings. In addition to the roof in the contrasting mythos black and side skirts in the same color, the Singleframe in matt black with a high-gloss black frame, the four rings at the front and rear and the performance markings at the rear are also made in black. In combination with the darkened LED headlights and LED rear lights, they harmonize perfectly with the metallic color Ascari blue, which is available exclusively in conjunction with the “S line competition” equipment package.
optional 18 incher on the Audi A1
The front spoiler blade in matt platinum gray, the exterior mirror housing in platinum gray and the foiled rings in platinum gray above the side sill in conjunction with the metallic paint finish in ascari blue also stand out. The S line rear spoiler in legendary black and the diffuser clip in platinum gray round off the exclusive color composition of the new “S line competition” equipment line. A1 fans can also look forward to the optional 18-inch wheels, which add a further sporty touch.
"S line competition" and "S line competition plus"
In addition, Audi Sport GmbH is now offering the equipment package colored stitching in red for all A1 models in conjunction with the S line interior. Its red accents in the interior additionally emphasize the sporty character of the compact A1. For their front sports seat, customers can choose from the combinations of fabric and imitation leather mono.pur as well as Alcantara and imitation leather mono.pur. Both variants are decorated with express red stitching. In addition, the floor mats, the handbrake handle, the gearshift / selector lever gaiter and the steering wheel have red stitching. A comfort center armrest and door armrest with red stitching can also be ordered as an option. A black headliner rounds off the sporty interior. The Audi A1 Sportback S line competition can be ordered on the German market from May 20, 2021. Delivery begins in August 2021. In Germany, the A1 Sportback S line competition costs from 27.470 euros.
The dark look makes the Audi A4 and Audi A5 look even sportier
For the new model year, the Audi A4 and A5 will start in May with “S line competition” and “S line competition plus”, two new optics packages that have attractive ingredients for the sporty appearance of both models.
The “S line competition” styling package for the Audi A4 includes the S line exterior package and an additional black package. The matt lacquered radiator grille, the blade, the stone guard strip, the S4 spoiler and the Audi rings are all in black in a single frame. 19-inch cast wheels round off the package for an even more dynamic look. Those who opt for the “S line competition plus” package for the Audi A4 also receive LED headlights, an ambient lighting package, black exterior mirrors and an illuminated door sill strip with aluminum inserts at the front. Red-painted brake calipers are added to all engines from 150 kW.
on request: roof in brilliant black
In the new model year, customers can order the Audi A4 sedan with a brilliant black roof in both package variants. The color spectrum of the exterior paintwork goes from Terra Gray, Quantum Gray, Daytona Gray, Tango Red, Glacier White, Navarra Blue, Turbo Blue to Mythos Black. In addition, a plain paint with the color ibis white in combination with brilliant black exterior mirrors is an option.
As with the Audi A4, customers can also choose between the “S line competition” and “S line competition plus” edition packages for the Audi A5. In the "S line competition" for the Audi A5, the exterior design with 20 inch rims is also based on the S line exterior, supplemented by striking black elements such as the spoiler or the radiator grille. In the “S line competition plus” package for the Audi A5, matrix LED headlights, black exterior mirrors, red-painted brake calipers from an engine of 150 kW and more and the ambient lighting package emphasize the dynamic appearance. For the exterior color, you can choose from District Green, Quantum Gray, Daytona Gray, Tango Red, Glacier White, Navarra Blue, Turbo Blue and Mythos Black. The Audi A5 Coupé can also be ordered with a brilliant black roof.
The Audi A4 and the Audi A5 with “S line competition” and “S line competition plus” can be ordered on the German market from May 20th. Delivery will begin in July 2021. In Germany, the Audi A4 S line competition is available from 38.250 euros and the Audi A4 S line competition plus from 45.400 euros. The Audi A5 S line competition is available from 43.200 euros and the Audi A5 competition plus from 49.600 euros.
Top models of the Q family with a sporty look
In the SUV segment, Audi is going on the offensive in model year 2022 with the Audi Q7 and Q8 competition plus edition models. Optional equipment highlights both outside and inside make the largest representatives of the Q family look even more attractive. The black plus styling package for both the Audi Q7 and the Q8 makes a special contribution to accentuating and further customizing the S line exterior package with its dynamic look. The black single frame with slats and frame as well as the black Audi rings and clasp particularly emphasize the front section of both edition models.
The carbon style package, already optional for the Audi Q7 series model, with exterior mirror housings and door inserts in carbon underline the sporty character of the edition models. On the Audi Q8, the single-frame mask is also made in high-gloss black. Both vehicles stand on 21-inch aluminum wheels. Optionally, 7-inch wheels can be ordered for the Audi Q22 and 8-inch wheels for the Q23. While black trim elements are part of the new “S line competition plus” line on the Audi Q7, the carbon-look bumper strip at the rear of the Audi Q8 emphasizes the sporty character of the SUV. Both edition models are equipped with red painted brake calipers and greet their passengers with an LED projection of the S logo.
Dark tones, targeted color accents such as red decorative stitching, which can optionally be used to refine the seats and leather steering wheel, and the carbon inlays familiar from the S models determine the interior of the new Audi Q7 and Q8 edition models. This is supplemented in the carbon style package with a carbon insert for the shifter. The Audi Q7 competition plus is available from 78.170 euros and the Audi Q8 competition plus from 84.500 euros. Both models can be ordered from June. Delivery begins in late summer.
