Audi 2021 models will receive advanced technologyMay 12, 2020
All new Audi models will acquire a modern infotainment system.
Last week, Audi announced an update to its lineup. The most significant changes in the lineup included an increase in power for the Audi A4 and Audi A5, as well as technology updates in all directions. But among all the important changes, Audi did not particularly highlight updates to its MMI infotainment technology.
Today, the company announced that most of the 2021 models will include third-generation infotainment technology called the MIB 3 (Modular Infotainment Toolkit). The list of cars that will receive the MIB 3 includes the Audi A4, A5, A6, A7, A8, Audi Q3 (late arrival), Q5, Q7 and Q8, which will go on sale in the second half of 2020.
This new chipset is not only 10 times faster than previous Audi equipment, but also includes new features such as the SiriusXM 360L with hybrid digital radio. SiriusXM with 360L adds over 10,000 hours of On Demand content and a new For You feature that detects new content based on your listening preferences. The “On Demand” function will allow customers to acquire new functions, such as built-in navigation and other additional functions that will be available later, even if the car was not purchased directly at the factory.
Cars with MIB 3 include a more powerful Wi-Fi access point in the car compared to previous ones, which now supports connecting up to eight devices. Audi claims that its initial Wi-Fi package has been optimized for streaming audio and remote work applications, while customers who pay for Audi connect PLUS access high-speed unlimited Wi-Fi via a 1 Gbps LTE Advanced Pro modem with.
In 2021, Audi will also expand the availability of an integrated fare payment module (ITM), which was first introduced at the 2019 Audi e-tron and 2020 Audi Q7. This feature will now be available on Q5, Q8, A4, A5, A6, A7 and A8, which will allow drivers to pay for the fare without having to install a separate module on the windshield.
