MMI® touch

Available MMI® touch with handwriting-recognition technology allows the driver to “write” their entry rather than selecting letters or numbers and more easily navigate maps by moving a finger across the touchpad.

Additionally, standard Audi pre sense® front helps prepare for a front end collision. The driver first receives a visual and acoustic warning. Then, the hydraulic brake assist system actively decelerates the vehicle and pre-charges in preparation for an emergency stop.

Driver assistance

Parking system

Standard on the S3, Parking system uses front and rear acoustic sensors and a rear view camera to help detect when you are close to another object. The system automatically engages in both “Reverse” and “Drive” within approximately 3 feet of approaching an object, under 6 mph. The driver’s path is virtually shown on the MMI® display to provide an overview of the parking situation in the front and rear of the vehicle. This virtual overview helps increase driver comfort when parking or leaving — especially in tight spaces.
