If you’re a fan of the Audi A4, but just want a bit more, the S4 could be right up your street. It’s a sportier version that gives you a similar amount of practicality as the original, but also offers brutal speed, insane amounts of grip and some truly sexy designs. The S4 is an excellent car that delivers a huge amount of excitement in a typically refined manner.
The S4 burst onto the scene in 1991 and has been one of the most popular high performance ‘everyday’ cars since. With numerous upgrades that include more powerful engines, bigger breaks, firmer suspension and larger wheels, it’s easy to see why it can be pushed to the limit of performance. Available as a saloon, estate, coupe and cabriolet, there’s no question that the Audi is versatile as well as eye wateringly exciting.
There’s no question that the Audi looks amazing, particularly the newer models. It has an uncompromising look about it, but one that blends angles, curves and a lot of bling in the right places. The interior is similar to the regular A4, save some S badges and sports seats. It’s seriously high quality though, and there’s also a huge amount of kit available.
The great thing about the S4 is that it offers great practicality, especially in estate form. A lot of cabin space means it’s not cramped by any means, and you can fit anything from shopping to luggage in the boot. Executives with families would have no trouble, and could enjoy scaring the living daylights out of passengers with the awesome performance. It’s just epic to drive and can go mind bogglingly fast. Thanks to the Quattro 4x4 system there’s a shed load of grip and the steering is responsive and lightning quick. Thanks to some monster engines, putting your foot down is akin to reaching warp speed.
It’s amazing how a different letter can alter the price of a car, and the S4 adds on a huge amount of money compared to the A4. But then again you’d expect it as the former gives so much more. However, with second hand cars for sale you pay significantly less of the cost and can enjoy everything a top of the line auto has to offer. Motors.co.uk has thousands of different listings with big price discounts to boot, so getting a bargain used Audi S4 is very easy indeed.
So the Audi S4 is a serious performance machine that offers the same levels of practicality and versatility as its younger sibling the A4. Whether you go for the saloon, estate or cabriolet, it’s the type of car that wants to be driven and you never want to stop driving. Put the windows down and listen to the roar of the mighty engine, it’s amazing!
