Now on its eighth generation, the A4 has been Audi’s bestselling model for the past 39 years. In total, about 10 million units of the A4 have been sold. It is not surprising then to know that the A4 remains to be the flagship car of the brand. Even with the current elegance, emotional appeal, and sportiness of the A4, Audi took it a step further and gave the A4 series an update.
In addition to the new appealing design, it also upgraded the driving dynamics, efficiency, and infotainment. All these are evidence of the “Vorsprung durch Technik” that has been achieved by the A4. The upgrade was done and is seen in all the models of the A4 that include the Avant, all-road Quattro, saloon, and S4.
Both the Avant and Saloon variants use the 3.0 TFSI engine that has a power output of 333PS and maximum torque of 440 Nm or about 324.53 lb.-ft. In particular, the engine when used on the Saloon has a 35.3 mpg rating yet can go from 0 to 62 mph in just 5 seconds.
If the electric motor is used, the maximum speed reached is 155 mph. For the S4, the more obvious updates done appear to be on the colors, air inlets, headlights, and bumpers. Even so, there are still some subtle changes that have been made with regards to the interior. Finally, with the 18-inch wheels and S sport suspension, the S4 enables the car to have a better grip on the road.
