What is the Audi tent?
The Audi tent is, as the name implies, is a tent. However, this is not just any tent as you may suspect from the likes of the Pontiac Aztek. No, this is an inflatable tent especially developed to connect to the tailgate of your Audi. More specifically, the Audi Q2, Q3, Q5 or Q7.

What can you do with it?
Audi has especially developed the tent to go into the wilderness together with your Q2, 3, 5 or 7. The tent comes in a bag that also contains, among other things, the awnings, tent pegs and a pump. When you have found a suitable camping spot, you can take the bag out of the trunk and get started. The tent is very easy to inflate with the supplied pump and can then be connected to the tailgate. The size of 2.18m high and 2.40m wide, ensures that 3 people can stay in it while camping.

What's so special about it?
Besides the fact that it's a tent for your car... this option can also be used on its own. Audi claims that the tent can withstand wind speeds of up to 70 km/h without pegs and is waterproof up to 4,000 mm. With a ground surface of 9.5m², the tent can also be called suprisingly spacious. When your camping trip is finished, you can open the valve to let the air out of the tent. Then it's a matter of putting the tent back in the bag, which everyone who has had a sleeping bag knows, is always going to go well and without any frustration in one go.
