New Audi A4 puts more at your fingertips

NO ONE likes a smarty-pants, but chances are you'll be willing to make an exception for the new Audi A4. It's as brainy as a car can be, which is a good way to stand out if you have vicious rivals like the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes C-Class. Read more at The Business Times.

It's as brainy as a car can be, which is a good way to stand out if you have vicious rivals like the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes C-Class.

3 community cases, including 2 fully vaccinated linked to new Changi Airport cluster PM Lee Hsien Loong, other ministers speak out against racism after alleged attack Iswaran, WP MPs lock horns over editorial independence, choice of former PAP chairman to head SPH’s new media entity

Granted, you might be forgiven for thinking that the A4 is all about brawn, since a facelift has given it the appearance of a broader stance and more muscular flanks. In truth though, it's more pussycat than tiger.It's available with 150 or 190 horsepower for now, and The Business Times drove the latter. The acceleration might be strong enough to make the front tyres chirrup, but with suspension tuned more for comfort than roadholding, the A4 simply isn't an engaging drive. Wait till the hotshot S4 and RS 4 Avant get here, and the story will be different.

Meanwhile, the engine has a mild hybrid electric system and a clever valve timing sequence that both boost fuel economy, so for a car with the ability to hit 100km/h in 7.3 seconds, the 190hp A4 is uncannily frugal.Yet, that isn't the kind of intelligence that sells cars here, so you're likely to find its new infotainment system much more intriguing. headtopics.com

With a built-in 4G connection, the A4 can now get intimate with your smartphone through an app called myAudi, which in turn enables a number of things. Loan your Audi to your kid, and it will snitch if said offspring speeds or drives beyond a geofence that you can set.

Need satellite guidance somewhere? Simply send the route from phone to car.The A4 continues to have the nicest cabin in the class, but a new Virtual Cockpit screen now has three different modes, while the main touchscreen is both bigger and, again, smarter.

It understands fingertip writing, and the navigation system returns clever hits: spell out"laksa", and it suggests restaurants, shows you ratings, finds you parking and then plots a route that avoids traffic jams.Very likely, features like that are the next weapons with which the luxury car wars will be fought. The new A4 shows how it is becoming less important to outrun a competitor these days than it is to outsmart it.
