The 2014 Audi S4 doesn’t quite stand out from the crowd as its predecessors, but it’s still a powerful and reliable sedan that offers a plethora of special features and safety capabilities. Its 3.0-litre engine is particularly amazing, being able to produce the impressive 333 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque, making it one of the more powerful cars in this segment.



The 2014 Audi S4 isn’t as influential as it used to be back in the day, but it still packs a significant punch, offering solid performance, excellent safety capabilities and a huge variety of special features. This is undoubtedly a sport-oriented sedan, so it still has some of that appeal, especially in terms of design. However, if you’re looking for an Audi that delivers superb performance, then go for either the RS 5 or RS 7 model. The former would probably make for a better choice since it’s roughly in the same price range as the S4 (we stress the word “roughly”).

In a nutshell, the S4 is just the sportier version of the Audi A4, which you’ll notice as soon as you look at its exterior design. While they both sport the same sleek and understated styling, the S4 gets more feature upgrades, which include HID headlights, LED taillights, quad exhaust pipes and heated power-adjustable auto-dimming mirrors. On top of that, these cars also come with an S exterior package that offers aluminum diffuser blades at the front and back, a rear spoiler, unique mirror housings and a platinum gray matte Singleframe grille. Some of the standard features are daytime running lights, heated windshield wipers and front and back foglights. You might say that the S4 doesn’t quite distinguish itself enough from the A4 model, but that’s just a triviality since it was never supposed to be too different.

On the inside, the sedan looks just as stylish as on the outside. The best perk is the amount of comfort and space on offer here, especially at the front. The front seats are some of the best in the market, providing plenty of support, along with leather upholstery and power adjustment. And if you decide to get the Sport Package, you’ll get even better seating options, with accessible controls and adaptable steering wheel. The back seats are a little less accommodating since they can’t adequately fit full-sized adults, which is a shame. Luckily, the trunk is rather large, providing 12.4 cubic feet of space, which makes it larger than what you’d find in the Cadillac ATS and smaller than that of the BMW 3-Series. If you need more space, you can always fold the back seats flat.

The new Audi S4 truly shines when it comes to special features since even the base model has much to offer, including Bluetooth, a sport steering wheel with shift paddles, sport seats with Alcantara inserts and three-zone climate control. Unfortunately, there’s only one options package on offer, but it’s a big one. It comes with the Bang & Olufsen sound system, blind-spot monitors, navigation, pushbutton start with passive unlocking and adaptive cruise control. Other features include Drive Select, dynamic steering, a sport differential, adaptive cruise, adaptive damping suspension, Nappa leather and a selection of carbon fiber-look or stainless steel-look trim.

What makes the S4 truly superior to the A4 model is its 3.0-litre V6 engine, which can pump out the impressive 333 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. It’s paired with a six-speed manual transmission as a standard and a seven-speed automated manual transmission as an option. You can also get an optional Sport rear differential, which helps distribute torque between the rear wheels to make cornering easier. Fuel efficiency is not bad, but cars like the BMW 3-Series and Infiniti Q50 are better in this regard.

The new Audi S4 is not short on safety features either, providing quite a few options. Standard features include antilock brakes, traction and stability control, hill launch assist, front side airbags and side curtain airbags. You can also get the Prestige package, which comes with a rearview camera, rear parking, blind-spot warning system and adaptive cruise control.

So, yes, the 2014 Audi S4 is not the best Audi car there is, but it’s still excellent – as it more than justifies its $53,000 price. In other words, give this one a try and see if you like it.

Power and Performance:

The 2014 Audi S4 is powered by a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 that produces 333 hp and 325 pound-feet of torque. All-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission come standard, while a seven-speed automated manual transmission (called S tronic) is also available and serves as the automatic-transmission option on this car. Audi offers what it calls an optional Sport rear differential, essentially a limited-slip differential that helps apportion torque between the rear wheels to improve the car's cornering line. It's worth buying if you like to drive on twisty back roads.

In Edmunds testing, a manual-equipped S4 accelerated from zero to 60 in a quick 4.9 seconds, which is quicker than six-cylinder sport luxury sedans like the Infiniti Q50 and Mercedes-Benz C350. However, the C63 is capable of performing this feat in the low 4-second range.

EPA-estimated fuel economy is 17 mpg city/26 mpg highway and 20 mpg combined with the manual and 18 mpg city/28 mpg highway and 21 mpg combined with the S tronic. Although the 335i, Q50 and C350 are more fuel-efficient, the S4 has much better ratings than the C63.

Interiors and Special Features:

There is little to fault inside any Audi when it comes to interior design, and the S4's cabin remains as clean and organized as the A4 on which it is based. Upgrades unique to the S4 are its supportive sport seats (with either full leather upholstery or a combination of leather and simulated suede), a flat-bottom steering wheel and gray-faced instruments.

Many of the S4's controls are straightforward. Infotainment features are controlled via Audi's Multi Media Interface (MMI), which consists of a small knob surrounded by buttons that control menus on a central screen. Overall, it's an effective interface, though some audio functions are buried in menus and, in practice, we've found BMW's iDrive and Mercedes' COMAND systems a bit more intuitive to use. In S4s without the navigation system, the MMI knob is located on the dashboard (rather than the center console), and we find this setup less convenient to operate.

The S4's generous interior space gives it an advantage over some of the smaller cars in its segment. It accommodates five adults for short jaunts or comfortably seats four adults for long trips. Trunk capacity is average for the class at 12.4 cubic feet.

Safety features:

The 2014 Audi S4 comes with standard stability control, 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes and six airbags (front, front side, full-length side curtain). Rear side airbags are optional. 

The S4 has not been crash-tested, but the regular A4 received a perfect five stars from the government in all crash-test categories. The independent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, meanwhile, gave the A4 its highest rating of Good in every category except the new small front overlap test, in which the A4 was deemed Poor.
