Audi still doesn't stop there, though. They've fitted out both the A5 and the A4 with a three-zone automatic climate control system that allows you to set three unique climate settings within the vehicle. Keep everyone comfortable no matter how much your preferences differ.

You'll also get heated front seats in both models. Though, they do come standard in every A4 trim level and it is available on the A5.
