2018 Audi S4

Fast doesn’t even begin to describe the mind-blowing speed of the 2018 Audi S4. With its class-leading 0-60 mph time of 4.4 seconds in road tests, the all-new S4 turns up the heat on the competition. The intriguing new S4 will go on sale later this spring, but until then, here’s a small sampling of the exciting, speed-enhancing innovations included in this newly redesigned, sport-tuned sedan.

Engine Updates

A reengineered 3.0L TFSI® V6 engine gives this latest S4 additional horsepower and more torque than earlier versions, with the same amount of displacement as in the previous engine. Now, the S4 ’s all-new 3.0-liter TFSI® V6 has the force of 354 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque, giving it unimaginable power.

Underneath it all, the broad torque curve achieves a new maximum force at a lower 1,370-4,500 RPM range. A new turbocharger with a twin-scroll housing design takes the place of the existing supercharger to help keep exhaust gas flow to the turbine at the peak setting. Things run more quickly and efficiently than ever.

New Standard Transmission

The 2018 model S4 includes an eight-speed tiptronic® automatic transmission, perfect for keeping the engine consistent and running close to the ideal speed. It accomplishes this because of its ability to run at the low-end torque of the new engine, thanks to lower gears that provide short ratios and longer upper gears that help cut the number of engine revolutions. This transmission, paired with the brand-new engine, is part of Audi’s S4 recipe for speed.

Additional Enhancements

The latest S4 also comes with standard Audi drive select, giving drivers four different driving modes and settings for gear shift points, throttle response, steering, and available adaptive cruise control and damper control. The S sport package comes with sport adaptive damping suspension with a control center that also measures acceleration and yaw rates. Drivers have the ultimate control.

Dynamic steering is another option, which allows variable steering ratios based on how fast you’re going and what drive select setting you’ve chosen. Dynamic steering lets you maintain a straight line more easily at faster speeds and improved steering response at lower speeds.
