2018 Audi S4 review: Our expert's take


What it is: A redesigned S4 performance sedan arrived as an early 2018 model with a 354-horsepower, 3.0-liter V-6 engine that's turbocharged instead of supercharged like the engine in its predecessor. An eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are standard.



What’s Special


  • 18-inch wheels with standard summer tires

  • Full-LED headlights

  • Four selectable driving modes

  • Adaptive suspension available

  • Variable-ratio steering available


Here's Info on the Regular A4:


What it is: German luxury brand Audi introduced a redesigned A4 sedan last year. The styling changes were more subtle than dramatic, and the new model retained the same basic shape as its predecessor. Front- and all-wheel drive versions are available along with a manual transmission in place of the dual-clutch gearbox.  Competitors include the BMW 3 Series, Cadillac ATS, Lexus IS and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. A performance-oriented S4 variant returns for the 2018 model year. 


Heated front seats and S Line exterior accents are now standard. Premium Plus trims gain Audi Side Assist and Pre Sense rear safety features while the Prestige version adds lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability, automatic high-beam headlights and traffic-sign-recognition capability.


A new Black Optic Plus Package includes 18-inch gloss-black wheels and all-season tires; red brake calipers; and side sills, a rear lip spoiler and side-mirror housings in gloss black. Inside, the package includes a three-spoke flat-bottom steering wheel, piano-black trim and red stitching.

This car does it all. It’s perfect for the weekend, the daily ,the snow, the rain and it’s pleasure to get in every day. Will probably own this one for the long haul.

2018 was a good year!

I have owned two earlier versions of this model and two other models from Audi and I am blown away by this car’s newer levels of luxury, fit, and finish! The newer features and amenities are quite nice too! The virtual cockpit and massaging seats are amazing! I am still learning the vehicle so I’m sure some things are being left out!
