New Audi S4 in SA (2017) Specs & Price


The sportier version of the Audi A4 has arrived in South Africa! Take a look at specification and pricing for the new Audi S4.

Perched at the top of the A4 range is the new S4. Featuring permanent quattro all-wheel drive, the S4 is powered by a redeveloped 3.0-litre V6 turbopetrol engine with 260 kW and 500 Nm of torque that allows for a zero 100 kph sprint time of 4.7 seconds. Fuel consumption is claimed at 7.3 L/100km.

Power is laid down using an 8-speed tiptronic transmission with short-ratio gears low down for sportier driving and longer ratios higher up to help achieve better fuel efficiency. A freewheeling mode kicks in when the driver releases the accelerator between speeds of 55 kph and 160 kph, which further aids efficiency.

The S4 offers torque vectoring to improve handling and stability while an active sport differential is available as an option as is dynamic steering which will vary the steering gear ration depending on speed. Stopping power is taken care of with 350 mm diameter front brakes with black 6-piston calipers or red calipers as an option.
