  • Audi is the first car manufacturer in the U.S. to feature FSI direct injection technology in all of its gasoline engines.
  • Innovative 3D navigation with SIRIUS traffic on all models (except A8).
  • Two TDI clean diesel models launched within one calendar year in 2009.
  • All Audi models have available or standard LED daytime running lights.


  • HERNDON, Va., Aug 7, 2009 – Audi today released pricing for many of its 2010 model-year offerings, which are headed to authorized Audi dealerships to meet strong consumer demand.



    Audi is adding a variety of new vehicles and product enhancements in its 2010 model year portfolio. Chief among the advances: Audi stands as the only automaker in the U.S. featuring efficient and performance-tuned FSI direct-injection technology with all of its gasoline-powered engines. Audi will also offer navigation as standard equipment for a limited time on 2010 Audi A6 Premium Plus models. And every Audi model will have distinctive LED daytime running lights as available or standard equipment.



    Audi moved sales of many 2010 models ahead by several weeks following a successful sell-down of the previous model-year inventory. Sales of the 2009 Audi A5 and S5 coupes, for example, finished July 57.2 percent ahead of the sales pace set in the first seven months of last year. Demand for the all-new Audi Q5 has been exceptionally strong since its February introduction to consumers, with sales hitting 6,724 units by the end of July. Here is a summary of the product highlights and pricing news for the 2010 model-year Audi cars and SUVs:



    2010 Audi A3



    The Audi A3 has both pioneered and led a new premium compact car segment since its U.S. introduction in 2005. In 2009, worldwide sales of the successful A3 had exceeded 1.9 million, and that number continues to swell today.



    To ensure the 2010 A3 stays ahead of the ever-growing pack, Audi has made available a number of upscale features, including upgraded wheels and standard Xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights on Premium Plus models. Every 2010 A3 showcases the sporty Audi DNA with S line exterior upgrades now standard on all models and quattro® all-wheel drive available with the award-winning 2.0 TFSI® engine.



    In 2010, Audi remains the standard by which luxury interiors are judged, and the 2010 A3 is no exception. Buyers can choose wood-accented interior details for the first time in 2010, and leather/alcantara seats are available on Titanium Sport models as well. The A3 is now available in either Premium or Premium Plus trim, allowing the buyer to conveniently add popular luxury features with one click.

Competition in the segment is fiercer than ever, with new Japanese rivals joining each year. Despite this, the A4 2.0T manages best-in-class fuel economy, while also posting better 0-60 mph times and torque statistics than its six-cylinder, all-wheel drive competition (BMW 328xi, Mercedes-Benz C300 4Matic, and Lexus IS250 AWD).



    In 2010, the bar is raised even higher, with features like third-generation MMI featuring SIRIUS® traffic, and LED taillights on Premium Plus and Prestige models.

The precisely drawn lines that gracefully interplay with powerful surfaces, the expressive front face, and the equally distinctive tail end yield a wholly desirable coupe. The daytime running lights, comprising a strip of eight LEDs on each side, make the A5’s optional Xenon headlights absolutely unmistakable.



    Inside, the driver is surrounded with the upscale features expected of Audi vehicles, including three-zone automatic climate control and an extra-large panoramic tilting roof, which lends the A5 an especially open and airy interior. Audi third-generation MMI is new for 2010, with lightning fast navigation, 3D map topography and SIRIUS® traffic.
