After neglecting the 2017 model year, the Audi S4 is back for 2018 fixed and prepared to act the combat against other indulgence sports sedans. With its brand-new 354-hp turbocharged V-6 motor and able MLB platform, the brand-new S4 significantly ups its performance game, although we’re still bummed about the nullification of the manual-transmission model. The brand-new S4 already is on selling in Europe, and we now know it will arrive at dealerships in the United States this spring at a commencing value of $51,875, a $1750 transaction from the outbound vehicle with its quality six-speed manual. Two trim stages are accessible, Premium Plus and Prestige, the latter of which adds $4900 to the bottom formation. If it were our vehicle, we might fasten with the Premium Plus, given that it comes well supplied, including heated and manipulating front rooms, three-zone automatic climate regulate and LED head and taillamps.
Audi’s Virtual Cockpit Display is on the option database along with safety features such as adaptive cruise regulate and blind-spot informing. The turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6, an eight-speed automatic transmission, and Quattro all-wheel drive come standard with every S4. Adaptive plates are part of a sport collection, and variable-ratio driving and a torque-vectoring rear differential are accessible as well. The base wheel-and-tire tool encompasses 18-inch wheels covered in season latex, all-seasons are elective, while a large tool with 19-inch wheels and season tires is accessible, too. The S4’s base value puts it in the concoction with its most apparent German oppositions, the $50,895 BMW 340i xDrive and the $52,925 Mercedes-AMG C43 4MATIC. Audi claims super zero-to-60-mph moment of 4.4 seconds for the S4, we look forward to test.
