In the manual mode, the transmission has a prominent sport performance, which matches the innate sport personality of Audi S7 Sportback.
quattro® All-wheel Drive System
"Even when running at high speed, the car is also like being firmly glued to the road." Audi quattro® can provide you a greater grip to improve safety performance. The main component of the Audi quattro® all-wheel drive system is the self-locking center differential. In normal driving conditions, the mechanical planetary gear allocates 40% and 60% of the driving torque to the front and rear axles, respectively. If the wheels slip, the differential will take the initiative to lead the engine’s power to the axle which has better traction performance. Combined with the torque, the self-locking center differential can more easily allocate up to 70% and 85% of propulsion power to the front and rear wheels, respectively. While providing the vehicle the maximum traction, it ensures flexibility and brings the driver a dynamic, precise and controlled driving experience.
The quattro® system of S7 Sportback is also equipped with another high-performance component - the sport differential, which can allocate the driving force between the rear axle and wheels in a continuous and variable manner. It can prevent oversteer or understeer arising in fast cornering. Due to its fast response, the sport differential can intervene and play a role even faster than the electronic stability control system (ESC). Regardless of whether or not there is a power input, each intervention of the system is very effective. The system is controlled by the Audi drive select.
Audi S7 Sportback combines superior power and high safety guarantee. While it fully meets your demand for sports driving pleasure and luxurious comfort, it is more dedicated to improving your travel safety. It is equipped with a lot of leading safety technologies and is ready to escort your journey.
Audi Pre Sense Front and Adaptive Cruise Control
Audi pre sense front which Audi S7 Sportback is equipped with can detect any danger which may appear at any time and provide support and protection to occupants in multiple stages. When possible dangers occur, it will first utter warning signals, followed by a short deceleration warning. If the brake pedal is depressed at this time, the system will brake the car accurately based on the status of the vehicle in front. If the driver still takes no action after the two-stage warnings, the system will brake the car mandatorily, close the windows and sunroof, activate the danger warning light and tighten the safety belts. The comprehensive technology pack for the anticipation of dangers and timely intervention represents Audi’s comprehensive rigorous safety technology and its highest safety standard in the industry.
Audi S7 Sportback is equipped with an adaptive cruise control system having the Stop-Go function. It has the advanced speed and distance control equipment and can keep a constant distance from the vehicle in front through sensors (dual radar and camera). At the same time, the Stop-Go function allows the vehicle to be able to automatically adjust its brake and start. In the long-distance travel or city traffic, especially in case of traffic jams, it can provide humane helps to the driver. When the speed of the car is less than 30km/h, if there is the danger of having a tailgating with the vehicle in front, the system will automatically brake until the car stops. It provides a more active safety for the driver so that the driving is safe.
Audi Lane Assist
The Audi lane assist system of Audi S7 Sportback can help the driver keep his or her car in the lane to avoid accidents. If the car deviates from the lane, the assist system makes use of steering wheel vibrations to alert the driver. The lane keeping system with the steering intervention function can set the early or late steering intervention in the MMI to ensure the driver to safely drive in the right direction on the road. This can reduce the load of the driver and improve the driving comfort.
Night Vision Assistant
The Night Vision Assist system which Audi S7 Sportback is equipped with uses far infrared thermal imaging cameras to monitor the zone 15 - 90 meters in front of the car. Once it finds a pedestrian, the system will immediately position the pedestrian and display and highlight him or her with yellow light. If the system judges that the pedestrian may collide with the car, it will turn the color used to display the pedestrian into red and sound an alarm. Through the setting menu of MMI®, the driver can set the pedestrian-displaying mark, the alarm signal and the image contrast. The Night View Assist system can help increase the driver’s nighttime driving attention, reducing the glare impact of confronting head-lights and improving the safety of driving at night.
Since its inception, Audi has carried a high-technology gene. Adhering to its "Vorsprung durch Technik" philosophy, Audi uses its wisdom and core technology to bring more excellent driving experience and comfort feel to people.
In the aspect of information and entertainment features, S7 Sportback achieves the most advanced of the same kind, letting technology interlink with the driver. The all new enhanced version of MMI ® navigation system is equipped with an electrically retractable 8-inch LCD monitor, 60G hard drive, DVD drive and voice input system and can be described as a multimedia system with ultra-high performance. With this unique touch, independent handwriting input panel, when you use a finger to "write" letters or numbers on the touch-sensitive area, you can get the information demanded. It has a reasonable layout of keys and buttons, making it easier to operate, so that occupants can easily control the on-board entertainment and navigation functions and learn them at a glance.
Parking aid plus
Audi S7 Sportback can optionally be equipped with a parking aid system with front and rear cameras. Through the front and rear images on the MMI® screen, the system can provide an overall perspective around the car, so that all views around the car body is placed just before your eyes. In case of parallel parking, the system can dynamically display the calculated driving route - including auxiliary lines and guide lines and display the best turning point. In order to safely drive into or out of narrow parking spaces, carriageways or parking lots, the system provides three display modes: 1) the overall view of the car body, including the front and rear views; 2) the front view; and 3) the left and right sides of the rear. All these features can ensure your safe access to the narrow parking spaces and help you eliminate all parking troubles.
Bang & Olufsen
Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System which Audi S7 Sportback is equipped with can turn the tedious journey into a symphony feast. It has a total of 15 speakers, including the subwoofer and the main speaker, and has a total power of more than 1300 watts. It can provide a high-fidelity auditory feast. The speaker shields have a polished aluminum appearance, and each speaker is allocated with an independent channel. The surfaced acoustic lens equipment ensures that each seat has a superior sound effect; the 10 channels all have wholly digital power amplifiers; and the bass and mega bass are equipped with wholly digital 5-channel ICE efficient speakers. The system is equipped with 5.1 surround sound. The protective films on the surface of the speakers can effectively provide excellent privacy and can avoid the sound in the car from drifting outside, for example, in case of calling via Bluetooth. The system has the noise compensation function.
Active Noise Control (ANC) System
The all new Audi Active Noise Control (ANC) system eliminates noises by generating targeted offsetting acoustic waves. The technology uses the principle of destructive intervention. When two acoustic waves with the same frequency overlap, if they have the same amplitude and a 180-degree phase difference, their amplitudes can offset each other. In the roof lining of Audi S7 Sportback are installed with four small microphones, which record the complete noise spectrum of the nearby area, respectively. The control unit of ANC can build a three-dimensional ultrasonic model based on these signals and use the crankshaft sensor to obtain the engine speed data.
ANC works together with the Audi sound system. Once ANC finds the presence of a disturbing noise somewhere within the default scope of the sound system, it will issue a precise offset sound through the speakers of the sound system, so as to offset the noise effectively. Even if the sound system has a very low sound volume or is mute or even shut down, ANC can work properly, providing a more comfortable driving experience for the driver.
