What’s new for the 2024 Audi lineup

Audi has made a large number of small changes to its U.S. lineup for the 2024 model year. The broad strokes are that buyers of almost all ICE-powered model lines will be able to use remote start free of charge through the MyAudi app. Along with that, the brand is hyping its new app store, so a bunch of new owners will get a six-month free trial of Audi Connect Plus that opens up native and third-party app access to services like Spotify and Yelp, plus gaming, parking, charging, and news. Consider it enticement to getting hooked on a subscription after the trial period. Also, all 2024 crossovers and SUVs come standard with adaptive cruise control (ACC), or “adaptive cruise assist” (ACA) as Audi refers to it. A new optional predictive cruise control element allows the system to automatically react to changing speed limits.

Information for the 2024 Q8 comes at a later date. Updates to the Q8 E-Tron got outed in March. Otherwise, starting from the bottom:
