A lot of stress is placed on the battery when driving short distances, in traffic, and at cold times of the year. A lot of energy is used but little is generated.
It is also critical when the engine is not running but electrical equipment is switched on. In this case, energy is used but none is generated. In situations like this, energy management will actively regulate the distribution of energy. If you do not drive your vehicle for several days or weeks, electrical equipment is gradually scaled back or switched off. This reduces energy use and ensures the vehicle will be able to start after long periods of time.
Some convenience functions, such as interior lighting or power seat adjustment, may not be available under certain circumstances. These convenience functions will be available again once you switch the ignition on and start the engine. The battery will drain if you use Infotainment functions such as listening to the radio while the engine is switched off.
If the vehicle's ability to start may be impaired by the energy use, a message will appear in the Infotainment system display. The message indicates that the system will switch off automatically soon. If you would like to continue using the functions, you must start the engine.
In fact, the 2017 A4 quattro manual will be capable of 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds, Audi says, a cut of 0.7 seconds over its predecessor. That’s with the 2.0 liter TFSI engine, good for 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft.
There’s a new quattro all-wheel drive system too, intended to work better with the manual gearbox, that relies on both an electronically controlled multi-plate clutch at the rear of the transmission, and an integrated decoupler in the rear axle differential. Heavy equipment repair manual. It’s also 8.8 pounds less than the previous quattro system, though it’s not the only weight saving in the car.
Audi turned to magnesium along with open gearwheels, hollow shafts, and a smaller clutch to trim more then 35 pounds from the transmission versus the outgoing A4. It also gets a new spur-gear stage, replacing the front-axle differential’s shaft from the old design. Further distinguishing the manual car will be an exclusive Sport plus package. That will have cast aluminum 18-inch 5-double-spoke-star design wheels, the option of Daytona Gray paint, and an S line leather and Alcantara interior with sport seats, a flat-bottom steering wheel, and matching aluminum trim. Audi dynamic steering and sport adaptive suspension will also be included in the package. While loved by enthusiast drivers, manual gearboxes have long fallen from favor among American drivers, particularly in the luxury segment where slick-shifting automatics are de rigueur. Alongside the growing reluctance among drivers to use their left foot, automatics have improved in their contribution to both performance and economy; indeed, it’s not unusual for the fastest 0-60 mph times to be achieved by leaving the gearbox to handle its own shifts.
Audi also offers the 2017 A4 with a seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission, in either front-wheel or all-wheel quattro forms, and it’s likely to be the more popular choice. Still, as the only all-wheel drive six-speed manual car in its luxury sedan segment, the new 2014 A4 is likely to be even more appealing to a certain cadre of owners. It’ll be priced from $39,400 (plus $950 destination).
