Review of the 2005 Audi S4

  • Though not quite as enthralling as BMW's frenetic M3, the S4 still offers entertaining performance along with a more livable personality.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Broad power band, confident handling, high-quality materials and attractive cabin design, available as a sedan, wagon or convertible.

  • Cons

    Not the tire smoker you would expect, small backseat, priced close to more established rivals.

  • What's New for 2005

    For 2005, the S4 gets a new satellite/navigation/AM/FM antenna.

M3 beater

Vehicle: 2005 Audi S4 New Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (4.2L 8cyl 6M)

BMW's M3 really is a phenominal car; quick, solid and good looking, but how many do you see around. The S4 is understated and, for an estate, very attractive. Straight line the BMW will win, driving entertainment and again the M3 pips the Audi to the post but for sheer aural entertainment nothing can beat a V8 (except a V10). Not only that, but Audi's Quattro system means that 344PS is avaiable come rain or shine an awesomely inspiring piece of German engineering - next time Audi, a little rear bias on the Quattro and that sacrifice in grip will be more than made up for in driving entertainment.
