2007 Audi S4 Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
Audi continues to offer its S4 in sedan, wagon (Avant) and convertible (Cabriolet) body styles for 2007. The S4’s 18-inch wheels have been redesigned and are the only ones available on the car. A sunroof is now standard on the sedan and wagon.

The high-performance S4 sedan and S4 Avant rejoined the Audi lineup for 2004. Both pack a 4.2-liter V-8 that produces 340 horsepower. A six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic transmission with a manual-shift provision can be installed.

During the 2004 model year, Audi launched the S4 Cabriolet. In 2006, the automaker made all S4s Bluetooth wireless capable and added a sporty new S-line series for regular A4 models.

Quattro all-wheel drive is standard on all S4 models. A Torsen torque-sensing center differential helps send power to the wheels with the most traction. The extensive use of aluminum in the suspension results in low unsprung mass.

Xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights flank the S4’s double grille, which features unique S-model execution. Large front air intakes are installed, and the sedan has a trunk-mounted spoiler. AVUS forged alloy wheels hold 18-inch tires, and the side mirrors have aluminum accents. The S4’s sport suspension includes stiffer shocks and springs, stronger stabilizer bars and a lowered ride height.

AVUS forged alloy wheels hold 18-inch tires, and the side mirrors have aluminum accents. The S4’s sport suspension includes stiffer shocks and springs, stronger stabilizer bars and a lowered ride height.

For 2007, Audi offers a DTM exterior package with carbon fiber front and rear spoilers for the U.S. market.

Interior
The S4 sedan features a 60/40-split, folding rear seat and holds five people. The driver faces gray instruments and a leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel. Tiptronic shift paddles are installed on models equipped with the automatic transmission. Silk Nappa leather upholstery is used, and the Recaro sport seats have 12-way power adjustment.

All S4s are prewired for either Sirius or XM Satellite Radio. Options include a navigation system, heated front seats and a 215-watt Bose premium sound system.

Under the Hood
Audi’s 4.2-liter V-8, which is also used in the automaker’s larger models, was modified to fit into the S4’s compact engine compartment. Developing 340 hp at 7,000 rpm, the V-8 produces 302 pounds-feet of torque at 3,500 rpm. Audi says the S4 can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds when equipped with the six-speed manual gearbox. A specially tuned exhaust system is installed. A six-speed automatic transmission that features a manual-shift provision is available.

Safety
Antilock brakes have front and rear electronic differential locks and electronic brake-force distribution. Standard side curtain airbags cover the entire side-window area. Seat-mounted side-impact airbags for front occupants are standard, and rear-seat side-impact airbags are optional. Height-adjustable front seat belts have load limiters.

S4 Avant
Capable of seating five people, the S4 Avant wagon uses the same powertrain as the S4 sedan. Aluminum roof rails are installed. Avant models have a dual-loading cargo floor, a full-size cargo cover and a protective net. Back to top

S4 Cabriolet
Audi already had an A4 convertible in its lineup but chose to add a high-performance S4 edition as a mid-2004 model. For 2007, the Cabriolet gains a new acoustic top that Audi says will reduce interior noise levels.

The four-passenger convertible’s grille is different from the sedan’s. In addition, the exhaust pipes are larger, and a rear spoiler isn’t used on the composite trunklid. Powertrain details for the S4 Cabriolet are the same as the sedan’s. In models equipped with the automatic transmission, paddle shifters are included for manual gear changes. Audi claims a 0-to-60-mph acceleration time of 5.8 seconds with the manual gearbox.

Structural refinements in the S4 convertible are found in its sills, A-pillars, under the rear seat and in the double bulkhead behind the backseat. Sensors in the active rollover protection system detect an imminent rollover and deploy protective hoops behind the rear seats. The power fabric top contains a heated glass rear window.

The quick, capable S4 Cabriolet rides and handles as if it’s almost gliding atop the pavement, without a hint of heaviness. Little steering effort is needed, but the open-top S4 responds instantly and confidently once you get past that sensation of lightness. Acceleration with the manual shift falls short of startling, but it comes close — both from a standstill and when passing or merging. Shifts demand some finesse to avoid jerkiness.

The ride is almost gentle on smooth surfaces, but roughness turns up as the pavement gets harsher. Wind rush with the top down can get nasty, but the S4 convertible feels solid even on undulating pavement. Backseat legroom is rather sparse, and trunk space is modest. Back to top

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
