Audi Drive Select Technology

Oct 6

Picture Description
With the release of the 2009 Audi A4 we have yet another pioneered piece of technology, Audi Drive Select (ADS). With this new advancement, the driver of the vehicle is able to select between comfort, dynamic and auto setting as well as individaul selections from each to best suit thier driving style.
Picture Description
These selections can be made while driving, through the multimedia interface of the vehicle or with just the push of a button on the dash.
Picture Description
Choosing between these four setting will give the vehicle dramatic changes in throttle response, transmission shift points, shock damping, and the power-steering ratio and assist. When you have discovered what setting you prefer in each mode, the Audi Drive Select settings can be tailored to each individual person who drives the vehicle, whether they are in the mood for a sporty drive or something more suited towards comfort.
Picture Description
My first impression of the ADS was how great it would be for family’s with 2 or more people driving the vehicle who each preferred a different drive, however after experiencing it myself my mind was changed.
Picture Description
I took the 2009 A4 on a 15 minute drive and in that short period I found myself in each mode, customizing each setting to my driving style depending on the road conditions.
Picture Description
In that short drive I realized even with one driver you could really fall in love with the Audi Drive Select. With this feature you gain the capability to have the best of all worlds. Audi has managed to fit 3 cars into one and you the driver can decide which one you want, whenever you want it.

I took these photographs in order to provide the best example of this technology. I will continue to showcase original content in order to be your top source for Portland Oregon Audi.

[…] I googled it and found articles or reviews did mention suspension. I test drove an A3 two days ago and played with the settings. I soley wanted to know if the 19" wheels would provide to harsh of a ride on our Michigan roads. I really feel I felt the difference between Dynamic (stiffer suspension) and Comfort (softer suspension) during my test drive. Either way, I felt the car was great with the 19" wheels and will order mine with them. Spoke to the service guy and Audi actually has a winter wheel/tire setup they sell as an "accessory" for each model car. The A3's were about $1800 for wheels and all weather tires. The wheels looked nice too. Choosing between these four setting will give the vehicle dramatic changes in throttle response, transmission shift points, shock damping, and the power-steering ratio and assist.

1. Performance

Every part in the machine counts.

With our vehicles being developed from the ground up around the world famous & award winning Quattro All-wheel drive, it is no wonder we are the leader in performance.

With countless victories and developments in Le Mans, Rally racing, Pikes Peak, and touring car championships, we build the most competitive All-wheel drive cars in the world. If you are looking for that unfair advantage, welcome to Audi, you have found it.

2. Safety

Why die, when you can live?

Brought to you by the company that pioneered safety standards and crash testing almost 100 years ago, with Audi there is no compromise in safety.

Available with technical advancements such as side guard head protection, Side Assist, adaptive headlights, three point safety belts and many other award winning safety systems as well as L.E.D lighting.

3. Design

Everyone wants to look good right?

Bold dynamic lines with moving surfaces, coupe like design and an aggressive stance on the road whether moving or standing still.

Audi has set itself apart from the rest of the industry with driver oriented cockpits and the leader of interior craftsmanship, materials and fit and finish. Keep in mind our extensive use of aluminum, space frame technology and low center of gravity give you that true Audi experience inside and out.

4. Versatility

Sometimes abundance is not enough.

If you want it, Audi has it. And if you have heard of it, it is most likely an option. Audi builds the most versatile cars in the world. Four door sedan or sport back, Coupe or Sport utility vehicle, big or small, front wheel drive or Quattro, gas fuel or diesel - and you still have to pick a color.

We build vehicles that will truly win races and pick up the groceries on the way home. If you let an Audi tell you it's story, it will never disappoint or disconnect you from the experience.

5. Value

Yes, fair value exchange does exist.

Whether you go with a new Audi and get a 4-year 50k mile warranty, or the certified pre-owned Audi with the most comprehensive 300 + point inspection and up to 6 years, 100k miles, you will not only get the best car on the market,
you will gain piece of mind!

And really, you can't put a price on that.
