Audi’s New Air Conditioning Filter Brings Sweet Relief to those with Allergies

Seasonal allergies can be crippling, and those who suffer from them know this all to well.  For the affected, sleepless nights, difficulty breathing and general discomfort and much more are all but guaranteed for a few weeks, but thanks to Audi’s new cabin filter, next year might not be quite as bad.  Specifically designed to remove harmful gasses and “neutralize a majority of all allergens”, the new cabin filter will come in two different versions- one which reduces allergens through a bioactive substance called “polyphenols”, and the other which uses a modified protein structure to achieve the same effect.

Apart from giving sweet relief to those who suffer from allergies, Audi’s new cabin filter will also improve the overall air quality within the vehicle by using a multi-layer filtration system.  Independent tests performed by SGS Fresenius and Fiatec GmbH have  validated Audi’s claims, and the new system will launch this June in the Audi A3, Q3, TT and A1, as well as Audi’s Q2 at launch.

Get all the details below.

  • Active substances in filter reduce allergens
  • Additional layers against fine particulates and gaseous impurities
  • Use in Audi A1, A3, Q3 and TT from June; in Audi Q2 at launch

Beginning in June 2016, compact Audi models will roll off the assembly line with a new filter in the air conditioning system. This not only removes fine particulates and harmful gases from the air, it also neutralizes a majority of all allergens. With the new filter, Audi is setting a new standard worldwide in the premium compact segment.
