The increased dimensions of the gran turismo, the 15-millimeter (0.6 in) longer wheelbase and more compact seats increase the space for the driver and passengers. The shoulder room in the front row of seats has been increased by 26 millimeters (1.0 in) and the knee room in the rear by 23 millimeters (0.9 in). The central armrest in the front with storage compartment, the big door pockets, two cup holders and a new, closed stowage compartment beneath the rotary light switch further increase the car‘s everyday usability. One standard feature offering additional convenience to the driver and front passenger is the seat belt height adjustment featuring extending and retracting power belt feeds. The rear bench seat provides space for two passengers and integrates a practical stowage tray between the two seats, as well as a folding armrest. The backrests can be folded forward in the ratio 40:20:40 using the remote unlocking feature in the trunk.
Each of the two turbochargers on the 2.9 TFSI is assigned to a single cylinder bank and can build up a maximum of 0.95 bar charge pressure. Like with all new V6 and V8 engines from Audi, the turbochargers are installed within the 90-degree angle of the cylinder banks, and thus the exhaust side of the cylinder heads is on the inside, while the intake side is on the outside of the engine. This layout enables compact construction and short gas flow paths with minimal flow losses - the 2.9 TFSI responds extremely spontaneously to movement of the accelerator pedal.
With the newly developed 2.9 TFSI, Audi has drawn upon the legendary 2.7 liter V6 from the first RS4 Avant. Produced between 1999 and 2001, it delivered 280 kW (380 hp). Just like the 2.7 liter engine, the new high-performance V6 is also designed as a bi-turbo engine. In comparison with its direct predecessor, a freely-aspirated, high-revving V8 unit, its pulling power and efficiency attain a whole other dimension.
