Kirchheim/Teck, Germany -- Audi has been using a combination of dynamics and utility to attract its unique customers base since 1994. The latest version of its RS4 Avant is a sports car with plenty of cargo space.
Optional Recaro bucket seats complement the sports-car look & feel of the new Audi RS4 Avant.
These feature seat heating, electro-pneumatic lumbar supports, integrated headrests and electro- adjustment of the pneumatic side bolster in the backrests and seat cushions.
Recaro manufactures these bucket seats using composite technology. Weight-optimised composite parts integrated into the backrest provide structural support.
The current seat model and all other versions supplied to Volkswagen and Audi is based on a Recaro composite seat with a backshell designed and manufactured exclusively for VW/Audi.
Recaro said it uses series parts from the corresponding vehicle platform for the seat substructure. This cross carline concept has been extremely successfu, Recaro notes: the new RS4 Avant is the fifteenth Audi model and the nineteenth vehicle in the Volkswagen Group to be equipped with Recaro composite sport seats.
