The driver assistance systems
In the Audi S4 Saloon, you can choose between a wide range of driver assistance systems. The predictive efficiency assistant supports the driver with instructions on when to change gears to save fuel. The Audi active lane assist helps it stay on track. The adaptive cruise control Stop & Go, including Traffic Jam Assistant, takes over acceleration, deceleration and steering at up to 65 km/h, taking the pressure off the driver during slow-moving traffic. The parking assistant, the cross traffic assistant in the back, the exit warning, the avoidance assistant, the turn-off assistant, and the Audi pre sense systems provide important safety services. A camera-based traffic sign recognition system rounds off the offer.
