Audi’s A4 and S4 sedans for 2016 receive a few upgrades including a standard 3-spoke multifunction steering wheel on the entry-level Premium trim, a Bang & Olufsen sound system added to the Technology package on Premium Plus trims and new 19-inch wheels for the S line competition plus package.
Audi’s A4 and S4 for 2015 receive a number of minor improvements, the highlights of which include the addition of last year’s S line style package as standard equipment on all A4s. A 60/40-split rear seat, headlight washers and 3-zone climate control are also now standard on all A4s.
For 2014 the Audi A4 line has moderate changes. The turbocharged 4-cylinder engine of the A4 is up to 220 horsepower, and the rest of the changes are related to the content of some options packages, trim details, new-design wheels and the like.
2013 Audi A4 gets a new hood and headlights, and inside, there's a new instrument cluster with simplified layout for the Multi Media Interface (MMI) electronics control. Electric power steering replaces the previous hydraulic boost. The A4 Avant
wagon goes away with the arrival of the new Allroad.
Once offered in multiple body styles, the
2010 Audi S4 is available to U.S. consumers in
sedan guise only. Mechanical upgrades include a new supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine, an available seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and a Sport Rear Differential system tied to standard quattro all-wheel drive.
The S4 receives sporty new front and rear bumpers with optional carbon fiber trim. The S4's Symphony stereo loses its cassette deck but gains a six-disc CD changer capable of playing MP3-encoded CDs, and a power moonroof is now standard.
Just because a manufacturer can assemble all the components found in the 2016 Audi A4 luxury sedan, doesn't mean it can replicate it. Audi has perfected the art of blending wood, leather and modern-day electronics to create a one-of-kind cabin that is often imitated but never duplicated. Audi's A4 luxury sedan for 2016 employs a powerful yet fuel-efficient turbocharged engine that can be teamed with quattro all-wheel drive (AWD) and even the option of a manual transmission. Moving from luxury to high-performance is the 2016 Audi S4 sedan. Propelled by a supercharged V6 and quattro AWD, the S4 delivers an exhilarating driving experience that easily rivals that of the BMW 3 Series, Cadillac CTS-V and Infiniti Q50S AWD.
"I test-drove the G37, C350, GS350, TL, 335xi and the S4. I could not get the Audi out of my head. I owned a 2007 CTSV and wanted performance with AWD (Wisconsin Winter) I ended ordering the 2010 S4 in red, prestige package, Audi drive select, Driver assist, Red & Black Nappa leather and dark birch wood trim, This car is flawless. It has awesome power and fantastic comfort and handles like it is on rails.
I LOVE THIS CAR!"
"I have enjoyed my S4 for two full years now and feel as though I know it well. The engine is absolutely a gem. It is a shame that Washington is rendering V6 and V8 engines obsolete, being replaced with turbo fours. There will never be a four cylinder engine that feel and sounds as good as this supercharged V6. I have the 6sp manual but sometimes regret not having the slick DSG 7 speed auto. The stick is fine but offers no performance advantage over the twin clutch automatic. The interior looks like new and is solid as a bank vault. Seats are comfortable but rear leg room is not generous. I use winter tires through Buffalo winters and with them, the car is awesome in the snow. I have gotten so use to the MMI controls (single knob that controls audio etc.) that I miss it when driving any other car. The Bang and Olufson stereo blows any system I have heard away. The car won't disappoint for those looking for a fast, great looking, comfortable all season alternative."
"This is my 4th Audi. I bought the S4 to replace my A5. This car is a safety oriented German tank to take my son to daycare in, then I can take it to the track and beat several Porsches in the afternoon. It gets a combined MPG of about 21. My particular car is the prestige edition with navigation and Bang and Olufsen audio. While some may miss the V8 "burble" of S4's past, the supercharged V6 is quicker and seriously efficient. I drive a 50 mile commute each day and this really adds up. I'd recommend installing a different intake to actually hear the supercharger though. Many critics of the car have taken issue with the Drive Select feature. In "comfort" mode, the steering is artificially light, and in the other modes it provides relatively little feedback as compared to other cars of this performance level. I agree. In the drivetrain, 7 speed dual clutch gearbox shifts quickly enough, and the sport rear diff which has basically cured the typical Audi understeer. If you track it, you'll wish the brakes were just a bit bigger and grabbier and that there was a bit less body roll in hard turns. If you're looking for a pure, visceral experience, this is not the car for you. But, if you're an enthusiast looking for a realistic daily driver, packed with technology, and that can still hold its own on a track day, look no further. Buy the S4."
