Slide into the 2017 Audi A4 and you’ll be greeted with a mix of high fashion and advanced technology. Audi’s Virtual Cockpit replaces your classic dials with a customizable digital instrument cluster, putting all the necessary information in front of the driver! Additional convenience features include a touchpad that accepts hand-written input and a high-speed data connection, creating a state-of-the-art user experience.
“The Cayenne S E-Hybrid pairs Porsche performance with the hybrid gas milage of 47 miles per gallon,” said Josh Dworman, General Sales Manager at Hoffman Porsche. According to Car and Driver, Porsche is leading the charge on plug-in hybrid vehicles with three models in their lineup. When in “E-Power” mode, the Cayenne drives solely on electric power. This is the default mode as long as the vehicle is charged enough upon starting. The Cayenne can also be driven in “E-Charge” mode, which your vehicle recharges itself while driving on fuel.
In 2015, the Lexus RX 350 got a facelift, giving the features you already know and love an update. We asked Tom Ryan, Brand Specialist at Hoffman Lexus, about his favorite feature. “The safety system on the new RX 350 is great,” said Tom. “The intelligent high beam sensors detect when its dark enough to turn on your high beams and automatically shut off for oncoming vehicles. In the event you forget to activate your directional signal, Lane Keep Assist alerts you by vibrating the steering wheel and helps guide the vehicle back into your lane,” he added. Be sure to stop by and see us to check out the intelligent high beams and more at the CT International Auto Show.
The Audi S3 has been refreshed for 2017. As reported by Car and Driver, “All the decisions about the S3’s handling, ride, and stability are now made in one spot, from one set of data, at the same time.” This means that the vehicle reacts in real time and all the units work together, making it safer for you on the road. These upgrades help the S3 stand out against the competition. Visit us to learn more about the S3.
The Porsche 911 Turbo S is a drivable everyday exotic. The interior space and visibility towers over rivals, making the vehicle more practical and comfortable than the competition. As emphasized by Car Advice, “For a supercar capable of such ballistic all-round performance, you simply don’t expect the level of ride comfort this veritable supercar delivers over dreadfully uneven road surfaces.” If you’re interested in this supercar, make sure to stop by Hoffman Porsche at this year’s Auto Show.
