The new Audi S4 and S4 Avant: At the peak of the model line and the segment

The new Audi S4 and S4 Avant assume top positions in the new A4 family. And they will be leaders in their class – with a newly developed engine, intelligent lightweight design and a package of innovative technologies from the full-size class, especially in terms of their connectivity and driver assistance systems.

Audi has experienced great success with its sporty S models over a period of twenty years. The formula here is cultivated understatement – a modest sporty look plus superior performance plus the quattro permanent all-wheel drive. The brand with the four rings is continuing this philosophy in the new S4 and S4 Avant. Both models are based on the second generation modular longitudinal platform, and they use high-tech in all areas.

From 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.7 seconds with fuel consumption of 7.3 liters of fuel per 100 km (32.2 U mpg) – the new Audi S4 Sedan as well as the new Audi S4 Avant are advancing to the peak of the competitive field with strong performance and exemplary efficiency. Its newly developed turbo V6 engine outputs 260 kW (354 hp). New solutions in networking and assistance systems round out its features. Audi is transferring many technologies from the full-size class into the mid-size class.
