Audi has improved the interior technology of the A4 Premium Plus trim by fitting a Bang & Olufsen 3D sound system. The A4 and A4 Allroad come standard with LED headlights that add a distinct design.

2023 Audi A7 and S7 Updates

The 2023 A7 continues its legacy as Audi's design icon and borrows most of its equipment from the 2022 model year that's steeped in an array of standard features.

Audi is one of the undisputed frontliners in the electric vehicle segment, having introduced multiple e-tron models in the past 18 months, including the e-tron GT, RS e-tron, Q4 e-tron,  and Q4 Sportback e-tron.
