Incredible high performance luxury sedan

The S4 has beautiful understated styling with only small hints at what lies beneath the hood. The powerful supercharged engine and dual clutch transmission work together with the AWD system to create a luxurious high performance sedan. The optional sport differential literally pushes the car around corners making even trips to the grocery very fun.


  • Braking: Powerful for quick stops
  • Power: Power comes on fast and very linear to redline
  • Seat Comfort: Seats are soft and well bolstered for sporty driving

- Dean Tocio, 2011 Audi S4

Great car love the acceleration!

Love this car. It's comfortable, has all the bells and whistles, fun to drive, and it seats 4 no problem. It also gets 28-29 mpg on the highway.


  • Ride and Handling: You can adjust to your liking
  • Power: Tons of it
  • Fuel Economy: Almost 29 mpg on the highway

God's Charriot!

This is an amazing car for the money! You have everything that you could possibly need in a sedan! Great room, safety, fuel economy, performance, AWD with rear wheel bias, duel clutch transmission, supercharged motor, STYLE!..the car looks so good. The only con is the cup holder size, it's too small. I have a newborn daughter and I can easily fit her car seat into the back. This car is an S5, but with another 2 doors, which makes for a perfect family car. I usually average 335 miles per tank with an average of 23 MPG or so, which is great for the performance. Audi usually under rates their horsepower output, so really it's more close to the 350HP. This car will run the 1/4 mile in 13 seconds flat or faster! It can be easily tuned to 415HP.


  • Value: Pefect all around sedan! Performance, safety, reliability, style!
  • Fuel Economy: Excellent fuel economy with performance! I average about 23mpg per tank!
  • Technology and Entertainment: High tech Audi equiment! Has WiFi, google maps, DVD etc. Audi Drive Select!


  • Interior Space: The cupholders are small.
