The rear of the vehicle will be automatically raised when you select another mode or start to drive.

Note

  • Also refer to the information about ground clearance.

Tips

  • The vehicle will not lower when the ignition is switched off if the compressed air reservoir is empty. The button LED blinks three times.

Roof rack

General information

Applies to: vehicles with roof rack mount

Storage and convenience
Fig. 87 Roof rail: mounting points

If luggage or cargo is to be carried on the roof, you must observe the following:

  • These roof racks are the basis for a complete roof rack system. Only roof racks that are suitable for your vehicle may be used. Audi recommends roof racks and attachments from the Audi Genuine Accessories program.
  • Make sure the roof rack is mounted on the vehicle only at the specified locations > fig. 87.
  • Note the permitted axle load, permitted total weight, and permitted roof load of your vehicle. The roof load is the total of the weight of the roof rack, the attachments and the cargo you are carrying. However, you must also note the permitted load of the carrier system being used.

WARNING

  • Follow the installation instructions provided with the roof rack system. If you do not secure the roof rack system and objects on the roof correctly, they could come loose from the vehicle and cause an accident.
  • The risk of an accident increases when using a roof rack system, because it changes the driving characteristics by shifting the center of gravity and/or the increasing the surface area exposed to wind. You may need to adapt your driving style and speed to the current conditions.
  • Distribute the cargo evenly on the roof rack and do not exceed the maximum width or the maximum total roof load weight.
  • Before every trip, all bolts and connections on the roof rack must be checked. Tighten them if necessary and recheck them regularly.

    If you do not do this, there is a higher risk of the roof rack or the attachments loosening or falling off.

Note

  • If you use other roof luggage rack systems or do not install the roof racks as specified, then any damage to the vehicle is not covered by the warranty. Carefully follow the assembly and installation instructions included with the roof rack carrier system.
  • To reduce the risk of damage, you must remove the roof rack and attachment before taking your vehicle through an automatic car wash.
  • Make sure that the luggage compartment lid and the panoramic glass roof* do not come into contact with objects on the roof when they are open.

For the sake of the environment

Energy usage will increase because of the increased wind resistance. Remove the roof rack when you are no longer using it.
