From 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.7 seconds and with fuel consumption of less than 7.4 liters of fuel per 100 km (31.8 US mpg) – the new 2017 Audi S4 and the new Audi S4 Avant are advancing to the peak of the competitive field with strong performance and exemplary efficiency.
The new S4 sedan (which will go on sale in the US later this year as a 2017 model) replaces the supercharger and adopts turbocharging for its newly-developed V6. It also loses an option for a manual gearbox, and will only be available with an eight-speed automatic. However output climbs to 354 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque which we approve of.
The Audi standard all-wheel-drive system is rear-biased (60 percent), and an optional sport differential can apportion torque across the rear axle. Ride height is nearly an inch lower than the standard A4, and continuous damping control is optional. Brake discs of 13.8 inches are vented and perforated up front, and they’re squeezed by S-logo calipers painted either red or black. Speed-dependent, variable-ratio “dynamic steering” is optional. The standard wheels are 18 inches while 19s are optional.
The Audi interior features sport seats, diamond-pattern leather and microsuede in black, gray, or red, and brushed-aluminum trim. The exterior is set off with a black honeycomb grille, restyled front and rear fascias, gray and aluminum-look trim.
Audi says the S4 Avant is 100 pounds heavier than the sedan but it’s also 165 pounds lighter than its predecessor. However if you want an S4 Avant here in the United States, the closest you can get is the A4-based Audi Allroad, which packs the familiar 2.0-liter TFSI engine and eight-speed auto. It is a real shame as the S4 Avant is a great-looking wagon.
