Audi Singapore challenged seven journalists to drive to Genting Highlands and back with the least amount of fuel in the Audi A4.

20 Nov 2019 | Local News : Singapore

Setting off from Gelang Petah, Audi Singapore challenged seven journalists to drive from to Genting Highlands and back with the least amount of fuel in order to put the Audi A4 to the ultimate test of its efficiency and grand touring capabilities.

Participants brimmed their fuel tanks at the start of the challenge at Gelang Petah
After brimming and sealing the tanks at the rest stop, the challenge began as the three identical Audi A4s made their way to Genting Highlands and back, clocking a total of 668km in the process, while having to overcome urban traffic, steep inclines, thick fog, rain as well as just narrowly avoiding a landslide.

"The Audi A4's format and size make it a great car for life's challenges; whether it's tackling the daily grind or going on a longer drive like this one we did to Genting and back. The car has plenty of range on a single tank to cover the expected distance. As we found out, with steely determination and a bit of skill, our drivers could go even further, achieving some incredible mileages, ranging from 19.4km/L to just 23.2km/L. With the 54-litre tank, this translates to a range of 1,256km, basically doing the whole drive twice without refuelling, which is really amazing!" said Markus Schuster, Managing Director of Audi Singapore, who was also on the drive.

The A4 is the best-selling model at Audi in the world and a key model in Singapore. More than 7.5 million units have been built since the first Audi A4 drove off the assembly line in Ingolstadt in 1994 as a follow-up to the Audi 80. In Singapore today, the ninth generation of the Audi A4 comes exclusively with the 2.0-litre TFSI engine rated at 188bhp and 320Nm of torque, and is paired with a seven-speed Stronic transmission.
