Audi A4 SE Technik Offers Premium Features
Audi A4 SE Technik now comes to offer more premium features, valuable power and efficiency gains. The Technik specification is available for all A4 Saloon and Avant models that are equipped with a four-cylinder engine.
The new trim level, offered by Audi, is based on the more familiar SE but adds additional equipment to it. For example, it includes Milano leather upholstery, hard disk-based MMI navigation plus, Audi Music Interface (AMI) iPod connection and the Audi parking system plus with front and rear visual and acoustic guidance.
Furthermore, it also features an exterior upgrade in means of the new 18-inch ten-spoke alloy wheels with exclusive design, and of the new metallic paint. To go even further into details, the underlying SE specification for the A4 also includes three-zone climate control, cruise control, a Bluetooth phone interface, the Audi Concert audio system incorporating digital radio reception linked to a 6.5-inch colour display, sensors for headlights, wipers and reverse parking and split/folding rear seats. The Avant variants also come with powered tailgate operation.
The SE Technik specification can be combined with a choice of three turbo charged petrol units and three TDI diesels ones found in the A4 Saloon and Avant range. The petrol line-up features the 120 hp (88 kW) and 170 hp (kW) versions of the 1.8-litre TFSI, as well as the 2.0-litre TFSI. The latter is capable of generating 225 hp (165 kW).
Moreover, the A4 2.0 TFSI quattro S tronic now utilizes an improved version of the 2.0-litre engine. Hence, it is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in only of 6.4 seconds on its way to a top speed of 155 mph, which is electronically limited. The CO2 emissions are estimated at 155 g/km, while the combined fuel economy is impressive – 42.2 mpg.
For those keen on diesel variants, there are available three versions of the 2.0-litre TDI engine, which are capable of producing respectively 150 hp (110 kW), the 136 hp (100 kW) and 177 hp (130 kW).
