2018 Audi S4 Owners Manual – The 2018 Audi S4, as pretty much every vehicle nowadays, faces a difficult commercial center overwhelm with the hybrids that buyers have embraced as once huge mob. What’s more, Ingolstadt hasn’t made things any simpler for the S4, which imparts showroom land to both Audi’s SQ5 SUV and the S4’s shapelier and somewhat more vast kin, the new S5 Sportback. While the S4 stays a go-to for under-the-radar performance and extravagance for defenders of the customary three-box, sports-car recipe, its more extensive appeal is melting away.
More Speed, Less Drama
Weighing 89 pounds not exactly the last S5 Sportback we assessed, our 2018 Audi S4 test vehicle restored the equivalent 4.3-second zero-to-60-mph run as the S5, just as a quarter-mile go of 12.8 seconds at 109 mph—0.1 second and 1 mph snappier than the Sportback. The SQ5 required 5.1 and 13.7 seconds for similar measures. More significant, the vehicle’s occasions are both 0.6 second snappier than those of the past S4 and armada enough to better the entirety of its key rivals put something aside for the Mercedes-AMG C43 4Matic car, which just pushes out the Audi with a 4.1-second impact to 60 mph and a quarter-mile in 12.7 at 110 mph.
2018 Audi S4 Specs
Moving on standard 18-inch wheels (19s are discretionary) shod with 245/40R-18 Hankook Ventus S1 Evo2 summer tires, the S4 also restored an amazing 0.99 g of sidelong grasp on the skidpad and a 148-foot prevent from 70 mph, in spite of the fact that we should take note of that the 501-pound-heavier SQ5 coordinated its braking performance. So also, the S4’s watched mileage of 20 mpg by and large and 28 mpg on our 75-mph interstate efficiency test just approached the effectiveness of the portlier SUV. The S5 Sportback, which shares the S4’s EPA gauges—21 mpg city, 30 expressway, and 24 joined—fared strikingly better at 23 mpg by and large and at 33 mpg on the interstate.

Lost in the Scenery
That impression persists to the vehicle itself, with the 2018 Audi S4 generally recognized uniquely by its model-explicit wheel structures, quad tailpipes, and splendid aluminum-look reflect tops. The S model’s knitted front game seats, enveloped by cowhide with microsuede embeds, are as excellent as they are comfortable and strong, yet little else changes inside. Like all Audis, the assemble quality and cutting edge moderation of the S4’s lodge is perhaps the best fascination. What’s more, Audi’s MMI infotainment interface is as yet incredible, its focal control handle and auxiliary easy route fastens and flips giving natural control insignificant interruption. We see little need to supplant it with capacitive-contact shows as Audi plans to do with its entire arrangement, beginning with the 2019 A8 extravagance car. It is in general execution that the S5 Sportback presents the best test to the S4, what with its sleeker coupelike profile and 22-cubic-foot payload cove got to through a hatchback versus the vehicle’s 13-solid shape trunk; we crushed six portable cases behind the back seats of the Sportback, contrasted and five in the S4.
