  • New Audi A4

    Audi's A4 range has been updated, bringing revised looks, some extra goodies in the cabin, and mild-hybrid tech. There still isn't a plug-in hybrid model but one is expected. It will be badged a TFSI e as Audi is now reserving the e-tron badge for battery-electric models. The updated A4 range, which includes sedan, Avant wagon and Allroad soft-roader options, as well as the sporty S4, represents a mid-cycle refresh for the current A4 generation which arrived on the market as a 2017 model. The tweaks are minor and include new LED headlights, a slightly wider grille, and a new light signature...

    2018 Audi S4/S5 video review: making our own music at Coachella

    We have a tough time nailing down what “performance” means anymore. Automakers work really hard telling us that every car has sporting potential—right down to a minivan. We’re easily not convinced. We know “sssspeed” when we see it, and Audi’s twins here...

    2018 Audi S4 first drive review: Whip, without lash

    The 2018 Audi S4 carves the desert better than a blistering sandstorm. Turn after turn, the S4 knifes ribbons of pavement like a scalpel in bread dough. The looks of Audi’s new sport sedan were hewn in the same way too. Audi’s newest S4—now firmly planted in the middle of the...

  • 2016 Audi A4

    Audi is set to unveil a new generation of its A4 small sedan at September’s 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show, but we won't see it in showrooms until the 2017 model year as the current model still has some life in it. The current A4 has been with us since the 2009 model year and it’s certainly starting to show its age up against newer rivals such as the BMW 3-Series, Cadillac ATS and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. It’s now soldiering on into the 2016 model year, priced from $36,825 with its $925 destination charge added on. ALSO SEE: 2016 Audi A4 Spy Shots Unfortunately, there aren’t...

    Driven: 2010 Audi S4

    The 2010 Audi S4 gets about 30 percent better fuel economy than the 2008 S4. What? You don’t think first about fuel economy when shopping for a 333hp super sports sedan? How about price? In that department, too, the new S4 triumphs over old, retailing for $45,900 (manual gearbox) vs. $48,610;...

  • 2010 Audi S4

    It's great when sedans crack the 12 second quarter mile mark at 108 mph or more but when they weigh 4,000 pounds and are rated at 333 horsepower, something just doesn't add up. In this case, the S4 seems to be making approximately 70 horsepower more than advertised. Consider the following test results: Road & Track achieved 12.9 seconds at 108.6 mph and 13.2 seconds at 106.8 mph in the S4 for the quarter mile on two separate occasions, while Car and Driver achieved a similar result of 13.4 seconds at 106 mph. With very aggressive gearing and all-wheel drive like in the Porsche Panamera...

    Sportec takes Audi S4 Avant output to 425hp

    You'd think that spending the time, effort and money to get another 92hp out of your car would yield more than 0.1 seconds in the 0-62mph dash and the same top speed, but for the Swiss tuners at Sportec, that's unfortunately exactly what happened. Despite cranking the car up to 425hp from the stock...
