Audi is adding a variety of new vehicles and product enhancements in its 2010 model year portfolio. Chief among the advances: Audi stands as the only automaker in the U.S. featuring efficient and performance-tuned FSI direct-injection technology with all of its gasoline-powered engines. Audi will also offer navigation as standard equipment for a limited time on 2010 Audi A6 Premium Plus models. And every Audi model will have distinctive LED daytime running lights as available or standard equipment.
Audi moved sales of many 2010 models ahead by several weeks following a successful sell-down of the previous model-year inventory. Sales of the 2009 Audi A5 and S5 coupes, for example, finished July 57.2 percent ahead of the sales pace set in the first seven months of last year. Demand for the all-new Audi Q5 has been exceptionally strong since its February introduction to consumers, with sales hitting 6,724 units by the end of July.
