Also available is an all-new and pioneering augmented reality head-up display. Working just like the head-up display in a fighter jet, it projects key driving data – whether it’s dynamic animated floating arrows for navigation, or visual prompts for driver assistance functions such as lane assist – directly onto the windscreen, right in your eyeline, helping you focus more keenly on the road ahead.

“One of the great things about this Audi is that the driving position feels natural,” says Chris. “Everything is angled nicely to the driver, everything is in reach, you can use the touchscreen easily, and you really feel you’re in control. The Virtual Cockpit is great, as it gives you all essential information right in front of you, while the head-up display means you don’t even have to look away from the road.”

When you’re ready to start your journey, the Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron offers a range of powertrain choices all the way from the Q4 35 e-tron with 170PS and 310Nm of torque, right up to the electrifying 50 e-tron quattro with 299PS, 460Nm of torque, confidence-inspiring all-wheel-drive and a 0-62mph time of just 6.2 seconds. Each powertrain offers immediate electric torque and incredible responsiveness.

The low-slung position of the battery delivers near 50:50 weight distribution for perfectly balanced handling, while the sport suspension on selected models reacts to the road conditions at five-millisecond intervals for a more refined and confidence-inspiring ride. At higher motorway speeds the car can even hunker closer to the ground by 15mm to deliver a more aerodynamic and efficient profile.
