The Audi S4 Quattro offers elegance in balance, enough power to do what needs to be done, enough comfort to grant an ease and enjoyment in doing, all blessed with safety, good looks and, at least, a daily operating price somewhere in the range of “affordable.”

Staff Review MotorWeek 7.2 out of 10 2013 Audi S4 Sedan

The 2013 S4 is a real treat to drive and live with on a daily basis, and may even eclipse the vaulted BMW 3 Series in a few areas like interior and ride. We’re still not 100% sold on Audi’s long-term reliability, but that wouldn’t keep us from parking it in our garage!

Sophistication, style and superfluous power under the hood pretty much sums up everything that we like about the Audi S4. It also doesn’t hurt that the car has four-door practicality and a sub-$50k starting price.

For moving rapidly along an unfamiliar twisty byway with never a wheel out of place, rain or shine, the S4 could hardly have been beaten. It’ll get you there, quickly and securely and even somewhat efficiently, with plenty of smiles along the way.

The 2010 S4 is our pick of the entire Audi range (well, except for the R8 supercar), the S4 makes other sports sedans look silly with its appealing looks, swanky interior and sheer speed.

The Audi S4 is so brilliant at keeping its poise and packing a big punch in nearly every situation, whether it’s slinging through a tight highway onramp or putting quietly in traffic. It is both wildly entertaining and comfortable as a daily driver.

For performance enthusiasts, the Audi S4 is the deal of the century. It is too good — it feels like it was bred for corners, rather than merely adapted to deal with them.

The Audi S4’s appeal lies far beyond simply its value. It’s a reasonably-priced, high-performance German sports sedan that offers that impossible-to-describe “something special” feel of a limited-run model.

If the test S4, in bright red paint and mostly black interior, was any indication, buyers will get a car that has personality galore. It was spirited, right out of the garage and down the driveway. A little nudge of the accelerator while I was in first gear pushed my head back into the head restraint.

While the S4 is more expensive than the BMW 335xi, the difference is immediately realized considering the Audi’s extra performance. There is no touching the S4 in terms of interior styling, build quality, and available amenities.
