Audi Picks Up Handwriting Recognition Rights in its 2019 Audi A8

2018-06-06T10:05:08+00:00June 6th, 2018|Audi, New Vehicles, Technology|

Audi does it best with the Handwriting Recognition feature in the 2019 Audi A8

Audi engineers are spot on with its latest generation A8 full-size sedan and the MMI Touch Infotainment system. The enhanced addition of the Handwriting Recognition feature is all the rage. As reported in an online Forbes article, Anthony Foulk, Product Manager for the 2019 Audi A8 says the third generation MMI Touch infotainment interface does away with a center console controller and touchpad and offers two in-dash touchscreens instead. “The top screen is for the infotainment and has haptic feedback built into it,” Foulk points out. “The lower screen is really a control panel and is for HVAC, seating controls, handwriting recognition and things like that.” The haptic feedback enhances the touch response so as to recognize entire words in cursive handwriting with precision. There are two ways to input writing style, either by writing on top of each letter or the more natural way of writing from left to right. Each way offers accuracy and consistency and merely depends upon user preference. The speed is remarkable as well. The precision and class in the 2019 Audi A8 MMI Tough Infotainment System is one of many reasons Audi Santa Barbara is proud to be a factory-authorized dealer.

The expertise behind the MMI Touch Infotainment concept enhances ease of access

Imagine you’re driving along the coastline of Santa Barbara and can’t find a coffee shop. With a touch of your fingertips, the MMI Touch Infotainment Handwriting Recognition feature is enabled. The touch-sensitive 10.1” and 8.6” displays make for ease of access for its valued customers. The impressive processing power is incredibly fast as well. The driving force in the all-new Audi A8’s Handwriting Recognition technology is its simplistic, intuitive intelligence with an emphasis on flexibility.  Along with the Handwriting Recognition technology, the MMI Tough Infotainment system is vibrant and multi-configurable and offers a futuristic overhead “drone view” for the utmost in parking capability. This luxurious sedan is comprehensive, technically innovative and ready to hit the streets in world class style. Launched in Barcelona in July of 2017, The 2019 Audi A8 is due to hit the United States markets in the spring of 2018. Stop in at Audi Santa Barbara and ask any one of our brand-trained representatives about the latest generation Audi A8 or any of the luxurious styles of Audi.

2017 Audi A4 Closes the Gap Between Sports Car and Sedan

2017-03-31T13:34:05+00:00March 31st, 2017|Audi, luxury, New Vehicles|

The 2017 Audi A4 is the perfect car for drivers who want the commanding power of a sports car, without sacrificing the comfort and luxury of a premium sedan.

The Audi A4 has sort of created this overlapping category of vehicle that’s being referred to as a “sport sedan.” This is because the A4 combines sporty and luxurious into one efficiently neat package. The jump from the 2016 A4 model to the new 2017 A4 model haven’t done much to change in exterior appearance. Outside of modest revisions to the overall dimensions, a slightly more aggressive grille and front end, and more modern head and taillights (with optional LEDs) the A4 stuck to its already attractive previous design. However, by cutting weight and implementing the newest technology, Audi has effectively developed a more efficient and unique balance to create the ultimate “sport sedan.”

Swift, Silent, and Sporty

By substituting many of the formerly steel parts with light-weight aluminum, Audi managed to trim the weight of the previous A4 model by about 100 pounds. The result is a more efficient ride with a steadier grip for the drive.

Though the 2017 Audi A4 is one of the most silent rides on the market, measuring at just 63 decibels at a steady 70 mph, the sedan still maintains its strength and athleticism under the hood. The turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with enhancements to the head increase the output to 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, up from the previous model’s 220 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.

To supplement this powerful engine is a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Audi did extensive work to imitate a torque-converter automatic, and it shows. The Audi A4 shifts smoothly and responsively from a stop, slow roll, or quick acceleration. When all added up, the 2017 Audi A4 boasts an impressive 31 mpg in the highway and 24 mpg in the city for an average 27 mpg combined.

Driving an Audi is a satisfying experience, but it comes with responsibility. When purchasing a luxury vehicle like the Audi A4, it’s important to take proper care of it. At Audi Santa Barbara, our team of brand-trained technicians are happy to help you keep your vehicle working at peak performance for as long as possible. You can even schedule maintenance and service appointments on our website. So contact Audi Santa Barbara to learn more about the 2017 Audi A4 and the rest of our extensive Audi selection.

2017 Audi TTS Coupe: Meant for Every Driver

To begin, the 2017 Audi TTS Coupe boasts a 292 hp 4-cylinder TFSI® engine. TFSI® stands for Turbocharged Fuel Stratified Injection, which in simpler terms means that it unleashes higher power output with greater fuel efficiency and produces outstanding responsiveness making for an even stronger connection between car and driver. With this kind of power and instantaneous response, it will take great self-control to refrain from leaving other cars in the dust behind you.

In addition to greater performance, the 2017 Audi TTS comes equipped with state of the art technology most notable by the Audi Virtual Cockpit. Behind the steering wheel, the driver is looking at a 12.3-inch screen that displays all of the pertinent information and more with clarity. It is designed to empower the driver with user-friendly maneuverability rather than overwhelm the driver with clusters of unorganized information. The TTS also comes with Audi side assist to alert you if you are entering another driver’s blind spot or if another driver enters yours.

As is common to every Audi, the interior design is the perfect balance of ergonomics and style. The Nappa leather is finished in a sharp red color, and the heated sport seats do their job of comfortably holding you in without gripping too tight. If the 2017 Audi TTS were to be described in one word it would be “well-balanced.” This vehicle balances power and practicality, comfort and style, luxury and sport. It is a people pleaser and a perfect daily driver. So contact or visit Audi Santa Barbara to learn more about the 2017 Audi TTS and the rest of our wide selection of Audi’s luxury vehicles.
