The turbo V6 engine accelerates a Audi S4 from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.7 seconds, and on adult to an electronically governed tip speed of 250 km/h (155.3 mph).

It suggests several hunt formula after only a few letters have been entered. In addition, user operation is probable from a multifunction steering circle or by healthy denunciation voice control.

State-of-the-art: infotainment and Audi connect
Infotainment in a new S models of a A4 model line is state-of-the-art. MMI navigation and with MMI touch and an 8.3‑inch guard tip a infotainment range. MMI hold has a touchpad for zooming and scrolling and for entering characters. The complement integrates a Audi bond hardware component, that connects a new S4 models to a internet around LTE. Passengers can use their mobile inclination to roller a web, calm or mail interjection to a integrated Wi-Fi hotspot. The motorist duration has entrance to a multifaceted online services offering by Audi connect. It is easy to control functions from a smartphone around a MMI connect app. The patron can close or clear a automobile doors, work a discretionary auxiliary heater or find a parking plcae of a automobile in this way.
