Audi is expanding the A4 range with all-new models of the high performance Audi S4 and S4 Avant. Sporty, lightweight and powerful, the new Audi S4 and S4 Avant feature a newly developed V6 engine and are advancing to the peak of the competitive field with strong performance and exemplary efficiency.
The heart of the all-new models is the newly conceptualised 3.0 TFSI engine. This turbo V6 engine produces impressive torque of 500Nm and can accelerate the S4 from 0 to 100km/h in just 4.7 seconds. In the NEDC cycle, the S4 Saloon only consumes 7.4 litres of fuel per 100km, which results in less than 170g CO2 per kilometre and an annual road tax bill of €570.
A large part of the sporty handling of the S4 and S4 Avant is contributed to quattro permanent all-wheel drive. In normal driving, the system distributes engine forces with a slight emphasis on the rear wheels. The majority of forces can be directed to the axle with better traction when required while the optional sport differential actively distributes torque between the rear wheels.
Sporty, but not ostentatious, the new S4 models feature a bumper, air inlets and side sills in distinctive contours while the exterior mirror housings shine with an aluminium look. A black honeycombe grille, aluminium diffusertrim and four tailpipes are integrated into the rear bumper. The body is very torsionally stiff, safe and lightweight thanks to an intelligent combination of materials, with the new S4 Saloon with standard quattro drive weighing just 1,630kg - 75kg less than the predecessor model.
An extensive list of equipment comes as standard including LED headlights, LED tail light with dynamic turn signal, 18-inch wheels with S-specific design, front sport seats upholstered in Alcantara/leather combination and a leather-trimmed 3-spoke sport steering wheel with multifunction plus.
The new S4 models are due to arrive in the Irish market in August 2016 and the price will be released nearer the launch date. To register your interest or for more information please contact Audi Centre, South Dublin.
