Two of Audi‘s signature medium-sized family cars, the A4 and A5, have been given a variety of upgrades for 2021. The models were refreshed inside-and-out in 2020, but now see additional technology and driver assistance features, as well as a streamlined option of packages for each car.

Audi’s A4 and A5 four-cylinder models will receive a power increase of 13 HP as well as a mild-hybrid electric system for 2021. Higher-grade models such as the A4 40 TFSI is now fitted with Quattro four-wheel drive standard, while the A5 Sportback 40 TFSI Quattro has now been introduced into the lineup.

Standard equipment upgrades across both models include Audi smartphone interface with wireless Apple CarPlay, lane departure warning, and the integrated toll module system — the latter being a toll transponder built into the car’s rearview mirror, allowing drivers to access compatible toll roads services in the U.S. and in parts of Canada.

Front and rear parking sensors, as well as a heated steering wheel, now come in the Convenience package, while the Premium Plus trim gets adaptive cruise control with active lane assist, a top-view camera system, and hands-on detection steering wheel as standard.

Completing the list of upgrades is the new black optic package, which introduces 18” or 19” wheels. To find out more, head over to Audi’s U.S. website.
