Audi A4 (B9) 2016-2022 Owner's Manual: Steering

Description

Electromechanical steering supports the driver's steering movements by electronically adapting the power steering depending on the vehicle speed. The settings depend on the selected Audi drive select* mode.

Dynamic steering

Applies to: vehicles with dynamic steering

The driving dynamic and driving stability are increased by the steering ratio based on the speed.

At reduced speeds, steering is direct in order to provide agile steering behavior and keep the steering effort as minimal as possible when the driver is maneuvering the vehicle. This sets the steering to be less sensitive at higher speeds in order to provide improved vehicle control.
