Audi said its new S3 Sportback is the first production car to fully integrate the LTE data standards.

The German premium carmaker said LTE or 4G as it is also known is now avaialable in the model and will be rolled out to other Audis in November. The brand said the move is an important step in connecting the car to other cars as well as to the surrounding infrastructure.
The S3 Sportback offers drivers the full range of Audi's infotainment services. With 4G, the amount of data entering the car increases, which makes it possible to watch films in HD quality via the internet.
LTE will also be used to deliver navigation services with Google Earth and Google Street View as well as other functions.
