2019 Audi S4: Everything You Need to Know
About the Audi S4:
The Audi S4 is a high-performance version of the standard Audi A4 four-door sedan. Compared to the A4, the S4 has a more powerful engine, a sport-tuned suspension, and more aggressive styling.
While the A4 targets urban professionals, the S4 goes after drivers who enjoy a more pulse-raising commute.
What’s New in the 2019 Audi S4?
There is only one big change for the 2019 Audi S4. A new Premium trim level has been added. It’s actually an entry-level model that gives the S4 a lower base price. But it still comes with 18-inch wheels with high-performance tires, a sport suspension, and diamond-stitched sport seats with power adjustable bolsters and a massage function.
The Audi S4 comes in three trim levels: Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige. Premium includes the 354-horsepower V6 engine, all-wheel drive, and an eight-speed automatic transmission. Sport seats, 18-inch wheels and tires, and a sport-tuned suspension are also part of this trim.
Premium Plus adds the MMI infotainment system with an 8.3-inch screen, Audi’s “Virtual Cockpit,” remote start, keyless trunk release, Audi Pre Sense Rear, and a wireless charging pad. Prestige models include adaptive cruise control, a head-up display, a Bang and Olufsen audio system, overhead view cameras, and active lane assist.
What Does the 2019 Audi S4 Compete With?
The 2019 Audi S4 challenges the following sport sedans:
Exterior Design of the 2019 Audi S4
Like the Audi A4, the S4 has classic sedan lines that give it a graceful look from any angle. Some find Audi’s latest designs boring, but the S4 has just enough sharp angles to make it interesting. Styling cues unique to the S4 include aluminum side mirrors, a gray grille with aluminum accents, quad exhaust outlets, and a small spoiler on the trunk lid. All of them are subtle changes that blend in with the S4’s conservative look.
Interior Style in the 2019 Audi S4
Audi is well-known for its high-quality interiors. The current S4 is no exception. Everything looks and feels expensive. From the quilted seats to the metal trim on the dash, it’s a cabin that makes passengers feel special.
Passenger room is about average for the class. The S4 will seat four adults but there’s not much room to stretch out. The driver and front passenger seats have excellent support and even a massage function. The trunk is on the small side, so large suitcases are a tight fit.
Audi’s infotainment system, called MMI, is one of the better systems on the market. It uses a central controller located just ahead of the shifter to scroll through menus. It’s easy to reach and the screen on the top of the dash has crisp, readable graphics.
There are two cupholders squeezed into the console in front of the MMI controller. Larger drinks don’t fit very well. There’s not much storage space either. But there are a couple small bins that will hold cell phones.
What Technology Comes in the 2019 Audi S4?
There’s a long list of technology features for the Audi S4, including the following options:
- MMI Infotainment System: Uses an 8.3-inch screen mounted on the dash, and a round controller on the center console. It’s a great system that’s easy to use and has many useful functions. The S4 supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
- Virtual Cockpit: Replaces the gauges in front of the driver with a large reconfigurable screen. This projects information such as driving directions and vehicle data. It also displays speed and fuel range.
- Head-up Display: Projects information onto the windshield
- Bang and Olufsen audio system
- On-board WiFi
What Kind of Safety Features are in the 2019 Audi S4?
All Audi S4 models comes standard with Audi Pre Sense City. This is an active safety system that can detect vehicles or pedestrians and warn drivers. Or it can stop the vehicle if speeds are below 25 mph.
Optional safety systems include:
- Pre Sense Rear: Stops car from backing into a car or person at slow speeds
- Active Lane Assist: Warns driver if the car veers from its lane
- Rear Cross Traffic Assist: Lets driver know if a vehicle is coming from the side in a parking lot
- Adaptive Cruise Control: Maintains speed and distance from the car in front
- Road Sign Recognition: Reads and displays traffic signs in the Virtual Cockpit
What is the 2019 Audi S4 Like to Drive?
The S4 may look tame on the outside, but it’s a serious performance sedan. Between its all-wheel drive and 354-horsepower engine, the S4 has exceptional acceleration at nearly any speed. Handling is also another strong point as the sport-tuned suspension and sharp steering make for a car that responds instantly to driver inputs. Good brakes and plenty of grip from the performance tires give drivers the confidence to have fun on twisty roads.
Standard all-wheel drive also makes the S4 a good choice for sport-sedan buyers who need to power through occasional snow.
The EPA rates the S4 sedan’s fuel economy at 21 mpg for city driving, and 30 mpg on the highway. That results in a combined average of 24 mpg.
Should I Buy a Current 2019 Audi S4?
The latest Audi S4 has a combination of performance and comfort that’s hard to beat. Add in its tech and safety features, and this is one of the best sport sedans in its class.
Should I buy a Used 2019 Audi S4? Are There Any I Should Avoid?
There are previous generation Audi S4s with V8 engines and manual transmissions that are coveted by enthusiasts. Maintenance costs can be expensive though.
How Much Does the New 2019 Audi S4 Cost?
The new-for-2019 S4 Premium model starts at $51,195. The S4 goes to $55,495 for the Premium Plus. The top Prestige trim costs $58,795. The S4 isn’t exactly cheap, but shoppers looking for stealthy performance will be hard-pressed to find better.
