equipment


Explanation:
the correct spanish term is "equipaje" or "equipo". Equipamiento does not exist as far as I know.

The verb to use is "equipar".
Hope it helps! Good Luck!

features (equipped with...)


Explanation:
I often see this term to mean "equipment", e.g. computers (must be from English), but in the context of cars we usually refer to features, e.g. "equipped with 4-wheel drive". So you might need to phrase it along those lines.

optional extras


Explanation:
Of course it's also equipment in other contexts, but in the car industry 'un carro equipado' as opposed to an 'austero' is one that comes with the extras, and if you have to pay for them, then they're optional.

equipamiento = optional features


Explanation:
Obviously you are reviewing a machine translation for Audi, one of those made in Indonesia. I did have a similar experience with the MB900 engine, from Mercedes Benz. They send this to Indonesia, where they translate it in bulk, by machine I am sure. At least I was told this story by someone who was in "intern" ad MB. Good Luck. By the way, Spanish is my native language and I have no way to check the spelling here. So forgive any mistake in the explanation.

equipment, (available) accessories, additional equipment and supplies


Explanation:
Here they might mean two things:

proper EQUIPMENT which may mean eg, screw keys, air-pump, etc.

BUT if they are saying about it as about something additional (optinal, or say which can be purchased for additional money), then the term
accessories might be used.

FINALLY, if by this term they mean the p r o c e s s of "wearing" additional things ( e.g., ABS or all those "whistles-doodles" eg, leather cover for seats, air-conditioner, air-bag, additional air-bags (for dogs:), etc.) then you might refer to this as to

ADDITIONAL (AVAILABLE) EQUIPMENT AND SUPPLIES.

Hope in having been helpful:)
