Keep Cool this Summer Driving an Audi

5 Ways To Beat The Heat

With summer approaching, Audi has made it easier to stay cool with modern conveniences. Embrace the heat wave with Audi features created specifically to beat the heat.

Cool Down With Just One Touch

To ensure maximum comfort, Audi passengers can enjoy a multi-zone automatic climate control system. Intuitive, easy to use and effective in maintaining cabin temperature, the multi-zone system allows separate airflow to the driver and passengers. To regulate cabin comfort, temperature sensors help the system gauge the desired temperature and automatically reduce airflow to maintain optimum temperature.

Open To A New Experience

A nice touch to sunny days cruising down the streets is having the windows down and moonroof open. The Audi one touch panoramic power moonroof takes up a large portion of the roof exposing a crystal clear view of the beautiful sky above. With a single press of a button, the huge moonroof opens to let cooling fresh air in.

Wind In Your Hair

For those of you who truly appreciate being one with your environment, we introduce the Audi convertible. The acoustic folding roof allows you to put the entire top down so you can truly enjoy your ride. Cool off this summer with an abundant breeze whipping through your hair driving an Audi convertible.

Ventilated Seats

Passengers in the front seat relax in complete bliss as seats quickly whisk air away to quickly cool the occupant. Provided by certain Audi models, front seat driver and passenger can quickly cool to a comfortable temperature.

Pre-Conditioned Cabin Temperature

Before you ever step foot inside your Audi A3 Sportback e-tron®, owners can pre-condition the cabin temperature with just one touch. Simply download the Audi Connect® app and sync to your Audi. Among its many functions, this app can be used for remote climate controls when the
e-tron® is plugged in and charging; so you can cool down the cabin before you take a ride.

Capture It All

With The Latest In Vehicle Camera Technology From Audi

Do You See What I See

Cameras are just about everywhere, including your car. An article from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) reads “rear cameras are more effective than parking sensors” and that “rearview cameras, soon to be standard on all new vehicles, can be expected to prevent nearly 1 in 6 police-reported backing crashes.”

To help increase awareness of your surroundings, Audi has already included the latest in-vehicle camera technology to keep you safe and to help prevent accidents.

Now, let’s take a look at some of the latest vehicle camera innovations from Audi.

Eyes On The Back Of Your Car

Making rear maneuverability and visibility easier, Audi installed a rear camera that is not only vital, but is soon to be a requirement on all vehicles. Connected at the helm, this full-color, high-definition, in-dash LCD screen display gives you an extra set of eyes on the back of your car.

This crystal clear image not only gives you colorful guidelines to help you reverse and park properly, it also allows you to be in complete awareness of your surroundings.

If you’re wanting to take it to a VR level, Audi offers an optional Top View camera system, a 360° view of the space around your vehicle via 4 cameras on the vehicle. Giving you a birds-eye view, this system stitches the 4 camera images together into one image to give you a complete view of your surroundings.

Night Vision Camera

An impressive technological innovation, Audi’s Night Vision Assistant technology uses a thermal imaging camera to make objects visible at night. The system uses an infrared camera to detect heat radiated by objects to significantly improve safety and comfort when driving at night. Not only does it point out dimmed objects in the road, it even automatically directs the vehicle’s active full-LED headlights directly at the dimmed objects ahead. Now there’s no need to be afraid of the dark!

Panoramic Rear Camera

Yet another option to increase visibility, Audi offers a Panoramic Rear Camera. This unique camera offers a wide-angle image to help see approaching traffic. Also, this camera increases awareness to approaching traffic coming around tight corners.

No Matter The Aperture, Gain Absolute Resolution

Not only do Audi models offer cutting-edge camera technology, they also offer an array of high tech safety features to keep you and your family safe on the roads. Like the cameras mentioned above, experience all that Audi offers test-driving your new Audi today.

Visit Velocity Honolulu or contact us to schedule a test drive and experience a unique camera system and innovation safety technology for yourself.

Audi Debuts 2019 A6 at NYIAS

Taking place from March 30 to April 8, 2018, the New York International Auto Show 2018 was a feast for car lovers. In addition to the incredible concepts and legendary classics on display, many automakers debuted their newest models; and as we expected, Audi showed off a winner. Specifically, Audi introduced the 2019 A6, an intelligent, refined sedan that offers all the performance you could ask for.

Another perfect example of the automaker’s gorgeous design language, the 2019 Audi A6 offers drivers a look that’s both luxurious and understated. The 2019 A6 sports clean, sculpted lines that are as aerodynamic as they are attractive.

While the 2019 A6’s driving dynamics are nothing to scoff at, it’s the inside of the cabin that will excite all tech-lovers out there. The A6 comes with an MMI® infotainment system touchscreen with haptic feedback, which offers natural-language control. No more stilted commands to communicate with your technology – A6 drivers can say something as simple as “I’m cold,” and the vehicle will ask what temperature you’d like to set in the cabin.

The 2019 A6 wouldn’t be an Audi if it didn’t offer an incredible driving experience, and Velocity Honololu is proud to say this model more than delivers. An all-new turbocharged V6 is now paired with standard 48-volt mild-hybrid technology to increase efficiency, the steering angle has been increased to make it feel more direct, and a new damping system has been designed to make the A6 feel more agile and more comfortable (a tricky combination to deliver) no matter where your adventures take you.

Although the 2019 Audi A6 is not yet available to the public, Velocity Honolulu has a number of attractive offers available now. Call us at 808.457.1070, contact us here, or visit us at 888 Kapiolani Blvd. to discover how you can enjoy peerless Audi engineering today.

Why Ride: Do You Know How Easy it is to Get Your Motorcycle License?

Velocity Honolulu wants to show you the way to freedom. Imagine cruising with your friends down the picturesque highways of Oahu, with the most beautiful vistas in the Pacific. It’s not that hard to do with our help. Getting your motorcycle license is as easy as 1-2-3:

1) Take the general knowledge test at the DMV to obtain your permit. The test is 25 questions long and you can study using the Motorcycle Operator Manual. Once you pass you are issued a motorcycle instruction permit.

2) Take the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) Basic Rider Course. This is a three-day class that includes class time and a two-day weekend rider’s lab. A motorcycle is provided. Upon completion of this course, you are issued a motorcycle skills test certification for a waiver, which waives the motorcycle road skills exam by the DMV.

3) After you complete the course, present your certificate of completion and proof of identity documents to the DMV, pay your license fee, and enjoy your new motorcycle license.

Before you know it, you will be looking at the incredible lineup at Velocity Moto, South Seas Cycles, or Cycle City Hawai’i and thinking to yourself: “Yeah, I got this.”

Make sure to check out our Ready-Set-Ride Event for Velocity Moto, South Seas Cycles, and Cycle City Hawai’i from March 23 to 25. There will be hundreds of bikes to choose from, many with limited time event pricing!
