Compromise is overrated: The 2022 Audi S4 blends luxury, performance, and technology in equal measure

Eye-widening performance, a refined ride, and luxury details make the 2022 Audi S4 one of the top modern sport sedans. Based on the mild-mannered Audi A4, the S4 adds key upgrades such as 18-inch wheels, massaging front seats, and nicer leather. But the real reason you get the S4 is for its V6. Rated at 349 horsepower, the S4’s six-cylinder makes 100 more horsepower than the A4’s top engine and backs it up with increased handling and braking performance.

Comfort isn’t sacrificed in the transaction. Shapely sport seats, soft leather, and thoughtful ergonomics highlight a modern, luxurious interior. Satin aluminum and carbon-fiber trim exude a tech-centric vibe reinforced by intuitive infotainment and a configurable digital gauge cluster. The S4 carried over mostly unchanged for 2022, with carbon-fiber interior trim made a standard feature, rather than optional as before. The S4’s approach under the hood and inside is more aggressive than a rival like the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, and it also packs more punch than a BMW 330i, although not as much as an M3.

5 reasons to buy the 2022 Audi S4

What We Like

Performance: The S4 balances effortless acceleration, ample traction, and the automotive equivalent of fast-twitch fibers. It sprints from zero to 60 mph a second faster than the A4, and slows just as ably with smooth, even braking. All-wheel drive makes turns and cornering feel instinctual. The optional S Sport package adds an adaptive suspension and a slick rear differential that further sharpens handling. Driver-selectable modes adjust stiffness to conditions: Comfort for rough and broken roads, Dynamic when you need to squash body roll in spirited driving.

Comfort: The S4 is all about performance and luxury in equal measure. The suspension soaks up the road like a larger cruising sedan, but it retains firmness and control for fast turns and cornering. The standard seats are firm and supportive and — bonus — they come with a massage function and heating, while sport seats with more pronounced bolstering are optional. Driver fatigue won’t be a problem. Taller passengers might want more room, but the S4’s rear seats are comfortable enough even on long trips. The cabin is quiet, and even tire noise is muted.

Technology: The S4’s infotainment is anchored by a 10.1-inch touchscreen. Navigation uses Google Earth mapping and can be shown on the dash-mounted screen or in the digital gauge display, directly in the driver’s line of sight. Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto come standard, and the excellent optional Bang & Olufsen audio system can handle a variety of music and volume levels with exceptional clarity.

What Needs Improvement

Driver-assist systems: The S4 includes several driver-assist features as standard equipment, such as automatic emergency braking and lane departure warning. But like many luxury brands, Audi makes things like blind-spot warning, adaptive cruise control, and lane centering available only on higher trims. While this isn’t unique to Audi, these systems are standard equipment on many economy cars from this year, so it’s hard not to feel a little shortchanged.
