Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The S4’s understated looks won’t snap necks on the street, but its 354-hp turbo 3.0-liter V-6 and all-wheel-drive traction can realign your spine on demand. Sorry stick-shift purists, an eight-speed automatic is the sole gearbox. With standard massaging front seats and premium interior materials, the sophisticated sedan also pampers passengers.

Pros
Solid performance,
stealthy road presence,
refined and high-tech cabin.

Cons
Short on engagement behind the wheel,
fierce competitors in the same showroom.

The 2018 Audi S4 balances perfectly performance with luxury in a package that's both practical and sharp. Hardly a recipe for excitement, but one that touches all the bases.

Pros
Sharp exterior
Comfortable in front or back
Plentiful power from V-6
Comfortable ride
Good standard equipement

Cons
Transmission seems hesitant
Finicky optional sport steering
Drama-less?
Missing S5's power dome
