Audi Introduces Sporty Packages For A4, A5, Q7 And Q8 Models

Luxury / Comments

The smallest and the biggest are all upgraded.

Audi may be focusing on an electric future but it still has many traditionally-powered vehicles to keep up to date. Among these is the Audi A1 that we don't get here in the States. Audi's update to this model sees it gain six horsepower and the option of an "S line competition" package with red contrast stitching, Platinum Gray mirror caps, and unique laminated Audi rings with Ascari Blue paint and a Mythos Black roof. This model also gains matte black accents, tinted headlights and taillights, and a Platinum Gray spoiler complemented by 18-inch wheels.

Fortunately, we needn't spend all our time worrying about the cars we don't have because Audi is updating some that we do too. The A4 and A5 have been updated with new packages too: S line competition and S line competition plus. Like that for the A1, these are just appearance packages and the changes are similar. For the former package, the A4 and A5 gain a matte front grille, an S4 spoiler, black badges, and 19-inch wheels, while the 'plus' adds LED headlights, ambient lighting, black mirror caps, and illuminated door sills. Vehicles with 201 hp and more also gain red brake calipers. A Brilliant Black roof is a new option for the A4.

The A5's upgrades are similar but with 20-inch wheels and Matrix LED headlights. Both new packages for each of these cars will be available in Europe from July, with our market to follow shortly thereafter.

SUV models haven't been forgotten about either. The Q7 and Q8 gain competition plus packages as options, again featuring black front grilles and badges. A new carbon package formerly exclusive to the Q7 is now also available for the Q8, adding carbon to the mirror caps and door inlays. Both cars are offered with 21-inch wheels as standard, but the Q7 can have 22s and the Q8 can be fitted with 23-inch rims. The Q8 is clearly the sportier offering since it gets carbon in its bumper while the Q7 only gets black decorative elements, but both get the choice of red calipers again, as well as red stitching and carbon trim inlays. These models will be available to order next month with deliveries late in the summer.
