Refreshed 2012 Audi A4 & A5 models now available in Oman & displayed at Muscat City Centre

Audi Oman has announced that for the convenience of customers it has arranged to have on display the refreshed for 2012 A4 and A5 model at  Seeb City Centre beginning today. Both models will be on display till May 22.

The 2012 A4 and A5 have been refreshed extensively and Audi has introduced new solutions for efficiency, driving dynamics and infotainment, along with an even more attractive design, once again reaffirming our tagline "Vorsprung durch Technik" [which means progress through innovation] for the model series.

Said Abdel Karim Awwad, National Sales & Marketing Manager – Audi Oman: “We are delighted to make this announcment for our customers. For 39 years, the A4 has been one of the best selling models for Audi and for 2012 model year, the design of the A4 has become even more clearly defined and striking in all model variants in the line-up. Currently it is in its eighth generation and for 2012 it has become even more attractive with interesting updates and some minor changes in dimensions.” 

A new highlight of the TFSI [turbo charged fuel stratified injection] high performance family is the new 1.8-litre engine which delivers sporty thrust, with a power output of 170PS and 320 Nm of torque. It offers impressive economy figures of 50.4mpg and 134 grams CO2 per km. And that’s an efficiency improvement of 19 percent compared with the predecessor engine. As before, the model will continue to offer the entry-level engine which is the 1.8-litre with 120PS on tap and middle order 2.0-litre TFSI.

While a wide range of drivetrains is typical of Audi most front wheel drive variants A4 offer continuously variable multitronic transmission. Only the quattro versions have either the manual transmission or the seven-speed S tronic.

For driver comfort and better handling the electromechanical power steering is new in all models of the series. Another high-end feature that gives the A4 a special status in its class is Audi drive select. In the basic package, the driver can switch the characteristic of the accelerator, the shift points of the automatic transmission, the power steering and the automatic air conditioning between the four modes “comfort,” “auto,” “dynamic” and “efficiency.” If there is an onboard navigation system, the additional “individual” mode is also included.

“Our second model series, the A5, which is available in Sportback, the Coupé and Cabriolet variants, now features cutting-edge technologies which make them even more efficient, sporty and powerful. And powerful for us means a widened range of powertrain options in the model series. We will now offer a new entry-level 170PS 1.8-litre TFSI with multitronic transmission. This new engine represents Audi‘s cutting-edge developments in innovative engineering solutions in performance and efficiency. The  2.0-litre TFSI quattro with S tronic transmission and 3.0-litre TFSI quattro with S tronic transmission for all body variants will also be available. The big news for the ultra efficient 3.0-litre TFSI variant is that it generates 272 hp and for the first time Audi is offering a supercharged V6 in the A5 Sportback and Cabriolet,“ said Mr. Awwad.
