The Audi S4 is a car for people who want understated premium good looks, simple lines and a car that can accelerate quickly while being an excellent cruiser. Audis of old often suffered from overly-jarring rides, but the latest crop of models (V8-powered S6 included) is in a different league, especially with air suspension.
This car definitely addresses an audience that doesn’t necessarily like showing off, because if you, say, order it in black, 99 percent of people will be none the wiser as to its sporting credentials. You’ll surprise many non-car people passengers with the surge its super-smooth 4.0-liter V8 provides and the 444 hp it seamlessly delivers.
I mean Audi really has this whole acceleration thing down very well: zero to sixty in 4.4 seconds for something this big is hugely impressive.
The car was recently tested by AutoGuide and they recommend it for those who can afford it and don’t want the latest word in pin-sharp handling; for that you need to check out one of this car’s rear-wheel drive rivals.
