Audi A6 to Predict When Parking Spaces Are Available

At Jack Ingram Audi in Montgomery, Alabama, we are well aware of the technology standards Audi sets. Audi continues to raise the bar on the best-of vehicle technology on the market today. It appears that Audi has done it again, releasing the Audi Urban Intelligent Assist that connects with the on-board navigation system to, among other things, tell you which street spaces are open and, even better, when a space will be available. It’s like Google Now for parking.

SJP7456-660x420

The new Audi-developed app combines a calendar and navigation into basically a GPS planner for day-to-day travels. You set the destination and the app determines how long it will take based on traffic data and when you should leave if you have an appointment set in the planner. It will alert you when to leave and head to the destination with current traffic conditions.  

Once the navigation programs the destination, it displays a map and dozens of pins appear on streets indicating parking in surrounding areas. Numbers appear on each pin letting the driver know the number of spaces available on that block.

How does it know? Sensors in metered parking spaces that mark the spot open or occupied. The system basically personalizes your driver profile and compiles your driving habits.

Do you think this type of system will work for our commuters and business people in downtown Montgomery? Wouldn’t if be nice to know if the meter still has time on it and the spot is available. It appears that Audi is constantly evolving to stay ahead of the curb so who knows what we will see next.

Check out the Audi A6 at Jack Ingram Audi in Montgomery on the Eastern Blvd. Take a test drive in any of our Audi lineup to get the full effect of Audi technology. It’s time to love what you drive and you will love your new Audi from Jack Ingram Audi.

News from Jack Ingram Volkswagen for the Future of VW in 2014

Volkswagen news from Jack Ingram Volkswagen

We received this press release from Volkswagen of America this morning on the what our customers can expect from the Volkswagen brand in the upcoming year.
We thought it was worthy of sharing for all of our Alabama VW lovers out there!

NEW VW LOGO

MODEL YEAR 2014: MORE EFFICENT, DOWNSIZED ENGINES AND AN EXTENDED R-LINE RANGE HEAD THE CHANGES
New 1.8-liter turbocharged and direct-injection TSI® engine to feature in Jetta, Beetle, and Passat, replacing the 2.5-liter five cylinder. R-Line® range expands to five models.

• Jetta SE and SEL models are fitted with new 170-horsepower 1.8-liter engine, offering a manufacturer predicted highway fuel economy improvement of 16 percent
• All Jetta models now have independent rear suspension
• VW Car-Net™ connected services introduced across a broad range of models
• New 1.8-liter engine in the Beetle has manufacturer predicted highway fuel economy improvement of 17 percent
• Sporty Beetle GSR® special edition offers dramatic appearance package
• Beetle R-Line model replaces Turbo, adding new bumpers, badging, and optional 19-inch wheels and Bi-Xenon headlights
• Passat trims are revised and new 1.8-liter engine replaces 2.5-liter unit, starting in the SEL model
• R-Line added to the Tiguan range
• Touareg R-Line joins the lineup
• All VW models are now E15 capable

2014 is a year in which some very important product changes will occur. Chief among these for the 2014 model year is the introduction of the EA888 1.8-liter turbocharged and direct-injection four-cylinder TSI® engine, which will gradually replace the 2.5-liter five-cylinder naturally aspirated power plant fitted to the Jetta, Beetle, and Passat models. This new engine produces 170 hp and 184 pound-feet of torque: this is the same power as the 2.5, but the torque is improved by seven lb-ft, delivered much lower in the rev range.

Volkswagen pioneered the use of small-displacement turbocharged and DI engines in the U.S. market: the implementation of the new EA888 gasoline unit will help ensure that more than 90 percent of the cars sold by Volkswagen in the U.S. have these highly efficient power plants. The engine is built in a new, state-of-the-art factory in Silao, Mexico that is part of Volkswagen’s ongoing $5 billion investment in the North American market.
