2010 Audi S4 Premium Plus quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 6M)


Review

This car is so much fun to drive and so quiet, I have to keep checking the speedometer to make sure I'm not speeding. Build quality is excellent. The car feels really solid. The manual transmission is a joy to use. It even makes shifting suggestions. The car has so much torque that I'm often in 6th gear going 50 km/hr and still have decent passing power.


Best Features

3D navigation, voice control, silky manual transmission, MMI, LED headlight, silk nappa leather, carbon inserts, side assist, backup camera


Worst Features

Ride a bit rough at times on 19" wheels, a bit thirsty, minor electrical malfunction

2010 Audi S4 Premium Plus quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 6M)


Review

My last car was a '09 A5. I had considered the previous generation S4 but was wary about the fuel consumption of the V8 in the city and wanted the new B8 body style. I enjoyed the A5 but it left me longing for more performance (and 4 doors). Once I heard that the new S4 was running a supercharged V6 I had to check it out. One drive and I was hooked. Nothing else at the S4 price point offers the same combination of performance and luxury. This car is the ultimate sport sedan- step on it and you're gone or drive casually around town in Comfort Mode (w/ ADS or Sport Differential). If you're looking for a sports car experience in a versatile daily driver, this is your car.


Best Features

Engine, Sport Differential (must have), LED DRLs, 3D Nav (graphics are beautiful), handling/grip (can't wait to try her out in the snow); 19 inch rims


Worst Features

EPA over-rates the mileage- good, but not as good as advertised; More exterior cues to distinguish from A4 (eg flared fenders); Backup camera should be standard in a $50k+ car; Not a huge fan of the Alcantara inserts, should have gotten the Nappa leather

2010 Audi S4 Premium Plus quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 6M)


Review

Only 700 chars, so I'll be brief: 0-60, better than: - BMW 335i/xi - Infiniti G37S - Volkswagen GTI 0-60, slower than: - BMW M3 - Porsche Carrera S - Chevrolet Corvette 1/4-mi, better than: - Ford Mustang GT - Camaro SS - Nissan 370Z 1/4-mi, slower than: - Mitsubishi Evo X - Porsche Cayman S - Lexus IS-F Interior fit & finish is superb, and bucket seats are excellent (esp. in two-tone). MMI interface is way better than BMW's iDrive, only the external cables are expensive (why not just have standard inputs?) Brakes are phenomenal, and cornering is breathtaking. Also of note, Audi's 333 hp rating is horribly wrong (possibly due to delayed RS4)


Best Features

3.0 L Supercharged V6, MMI, two-tone Recaro seats with "S4" logo, 19" 5-spoke sport wheels, Quattro AWD system, aluminum interior trim, built-in hard drive, transmission feel


Worst Features

Add some visible differences between S4 and A4 models, sure paid enough for it (red brake calipers? Please???). Instead of buying MMI cables, have standard inputs on it (3.5mm audio jack, USB port, etc.). Also, where are the memory seats? The E350 has them!

2010 Audi S4 Premium Plus quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 6M)


Review

A driver's car with addictive torque - Don't test drive unless you're ready to write a check. The handling is crisp with little body roll. This vehicle has 2 personalities, one that allows the comfort, space, and utility to be my daily driver and a second that has power, handling, and an unbelievable sense of connection to the road...it's almost perfect.


Best Features

Instant power available at almost any RPM. Quattro AWD is a joy in winter conditions and the new torque split feels great on dry pavement. Sport seats are a joy.


Worst Features

Slightly more aggressive exhaust note. Fix the totally unacceptable, embarrassing, persistent, slow speed brake squeal experienced by many owners that can be heard for 5 blocks in any direction that the dealers assert is not a defect and makes me want to get rid of my favorite vehicle ever.

Review

I am soooo glad I recalculated the price of the S4 Prem Plus vs. initially ordered Avant Prem Plus with Nav, B&O. The difference was minimal and the enjoyment is not easily describable. This car is simply amazing -- the engine, Handling, quietness when cruising, growl when step on it, Inside is nicely laid out, and beautifully appointed. The 6MT is super nice; I am coming off the latest gen BMW 3-series (E90) and this 6MT is much better (smoother, as precise, shorter) than the BMW's. The S4 seats are much more supportive and comfortable than the 3er with the Sports Package.


Best Features

Engine, engine, engine! Transmission, suspension, interior, seats, sound, roominess, trunk, Base OEM Stereo quality.


Worst Features

Not really a complaint, but my current fuel consumption is below the estimates. The car is in a break-in phase, so that may be it. First two tanks I recorded about 20 mpg for hwy/city 75/25%. The next tank will be 100% city, and it looks like it would be around 18 mpg...AC always on.
