Hi everyone. I've just placed an order for my new company car - an A4 Avant, S-Line, 2.0 TDI 190, S-Tronic in Daytona Grey. My boss is not keen on extras so I wasn't able to add anything to the standard spec. This is my first car with an automatic gearbox and I'm a little concerned about the need for Hill Hold Assist. I have had two previous VW cars that had an EPB and both had Hill Hold Assist as standard so I assumed the A4 would be the same. I don't like the idea of having to use the EPB for a hill start as in my experience it doesn't release the brakes quick enough when you're at a busy junction. It seems crazy that some sort of Hill Hold would not be standard on a car with no clutch or hand brake! I've been reading about a function in the A3 called Auto Hold or Hill Hold Assist Lite and I would like to know if it applies to the new A4. This thread here seems to suggest it is standard on the previous A4 but I cannot find any info on the new model. http://www.audi-sport.net/xf/threads/hill-hold-assist-question.264206/ I've spoken to a guy at my local dealer and also someone in Audi customer services but neither of them have any idea what I'm talking about! Please can someone offer me some info?!?
