There are features in your vehicle you hope you will never have to use – and yet it is reassuring to have them on board. This is true, for example, of the automatic emergency call eCall, which has been mandatory for every new car in the EU since 2018. The mobile online services of ŠKODA Connect also offer other helpful functions in all current ŠKODA models with the exception of the CITIGOᵉ iV, grouped as proactive services under Care Connect. These support drivers with any questions they have about the car. Two functions in particular help to ensure a relaxed journey, especially during the travel season: the info and breakdown calls, the buttons for which can be found in the roof module next to the red emergency call button and are marked with an ‘i’ or a spanner.
The Audi Q5 Sportback - digital and intuitive
In terms of operation, display and infotainment, the Q5 Sportback takes over from the Q5 the third-generation modular infotainment kit, MIB 3 for short. The full equipment includes the digital Audi virtual cockpit plus with a 12.3-inch diagonal and a head-up display on board. The multifunction leather steering wheel plus is used for easy and safe operation of the most important functions and displays. The MMI navigation plus infotainment system is coupled with a 10.1 inch touch display. Its natural voice control uses the knowledge of the cloud and can be activated with the voice call "Hey Audi". Many vehicle settings can be stored in individual user profiles and saved in the cloud in the myAudi customer portal. Some online services from the broad Audi connect portfolio use the swarm intelligence of the Audi fleet, for example to point out dangers. The myAudi app closely networks the car with the customer's smartphone. If desired, hardware components such as the Audi phone box or the Bang & Olufsen Premium Sound System with 3D sound can be added to the infotainment
