Audi of America announced the changes coming for its 2024 models. The company introduces numerous tech improvements like all of the brand's SUVs now coming standard with adaptive cruise control or adaptive cruise assist.
This summer, models with the MIB 3 software suite gain access to a new in-vehicle app store. Most versions of the A4, A5, A6, A7, A8, Q5, Q8, and E-tron GT support this functionality. The offerings at launch include Spotify, TikTok, Yelp, Webex by Cisco, and The Weather Channel. Audi also intends to offer its own proprietary apps.
