Audi Adds LTE to S3 Sportback

Audi is taking the lead in introducing LTE into connected cars. To enable LTE in the Audi S3 Sportback, a suitable SIM card with a data rate plan needs to be inserted into the MMI navigation plus unit in the car.

The Audi S3 Sportback also supports WLAN and passengers can connect to the hotspot integrated into the car to surf the web while on the go.

Audi brands its connected car as Audi Connect and it is definitely intensifying its efforts to differentiate itself as the Connected Car of choice. Its press release emphasized the seamless use of media stored on a server (data in the cloud) and networking and communications with other cars and transport infrastructure (V2V and V2I communications)
