2010-2016
2010 Redesign Year
The S4 is a high-performance version of the small Audi A4. It used a version of the A4's engine and either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.
All-wheel drive was standard. Acceleration is terrific, but handling isn't that much better than the regular A4, and the ride is somewhat stiff. The interior is cramped, especially in the rear seat.
