Audi has unveiled the all-new 2018 S4, which now packs more power, thanks to its upgraded 3.0L turbocharged V6 that now generates 354-hp and 369 lb-ft. of torque.
The V6 that has been reengineered with 21 more horsepower and 44 more lb-ft. A single turbocharger replaces the supercharger from the previous generation and helps manage exhaust gas flow to the turbine with a twin-scroll housing design. The upgraded V6 now helps the S4 reach 60 mph in only 4.4 seconds.
To help send that power to the four wheels, S4 comes standard with an eight-speed tiptronic automatic transmission. The S4 comes standard with Audi’s quattro all-wheel drive system, but a new quattro sport rear differential can offer an even more dynamic driving experience by actively splitting torque between the wheels of the rear axle, with the ability to direct nearly all torque to one wheel, helping to maximize driving dynamics.
Other performance upgrades include, an available sport adaptive damping suspension with a new suspension control unit and dynamic steering, which offers a variable steering ratio that adjusts based on vehicle speed and the Audi drive select setting.
The 2018 S4 is going to go on sale this spring.
