The Fast Lane Car gives its review of the 2018 Audi S4. From its sleek looks to the way it handles and hugs the pavement, the S4 is an absolute blast to drive! Its a perfect example of a fast and well-crafted ride that isn’t overdone.
Audi flew the crew to Palm Springs to test drive and discover the capabilities of its latest compact power offering. The German automaker increased the power output and reduced fuel consumption, thanks to all new powertrain. It’s a seriously overhauled version of the 3.0-liter V6 that sits in the current S4. The supercharger was ditched and replaced with a turbocharger – the result being formidable 354 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque.
The new TSFI V6 unleashes maximum power right off the line, channeled via an 8-speed automatic to all four wheels: 60/40 rear to front power distribution. Audi said the car will do 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds. It added that the S4 competes with the Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG and the BMW 330 and 440i.
As for the cabin, it’s very sporty and driver-oriented. The dashboard and door panels are adorned with aluminum and Alcantara trim, the switch gear feels quite solid, the quality of plastic panels is impeccable, and of course there’s the Audi virtual cockpit instrumentation. The seats have been contoured to be supportive during sporty driving, and they boast an exquisite diamond-shaped pattern on the leather upholstery.
Overall, the 2018 Audi S4 is so much fun to drive and is a perfect choice if you wish to go canyon carving during the weekend, while also being able to haul people to work or kids to school in full comfort. Watch the video for more details and the actual test drive. Enjoy!
