Last month we saw prototypes of the facelifted Audi A4 for the first time and now it’s time to see the go-faster S4 version too. As before, the S4 represents the performance-focused alternative for Audi A4 buyers who don’t want (or afford) to go all the way and get the range-topping RS4 Avant. The S4 also represents Audi’s rival for the Mercedes-AMG C43 and the BMW M340i. The first sighting of a new Audi S4 prototype comes in Avant flavor and brings quite a few changes. The photos reveal a full body wrap that doesn’t allow too many details to be noticed. However, we can spot the newly-designed air intakes carved into the front bumper, as well as the new RS4-inspired grille with a honeycomb structure that replaces the current model’s design consisting of horizontal lines. The headlights appear to be in for a significant update as well, although the disguise makes it hard to anticipate what they will look like in the end. They do seem to be full-LED units, … [Read more...] about 2020 Audi S4 Avant Facelift Shows RS4-Inspired Snout For The First Time

Audi's A4 just received some minor tweaks for 2019 but a more substantial update is on the way for the car's mid-cycle refresh, as evidenced by the recent sighting of prototypes. Now a new prototype has been spotted, and this one is for the sporty S4 in Avant wagon guise. While this updated S4 Avant isn't destined for sale in the United States, we should see similar updates on the S4 sedan we do get here. The headlights are new and no longer feature the teardrop element of the current S4 headlights, while the front grille is also wider and lower than on the current S4. The changes at the rear are much more subtle and consist of a new light signature for the taillights and a slight refresh of the rear fascia. 2021 Audi S4 Avant facelift spy shots - Image via S.

While the seller of today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe S4 estate says it needs some work, he also claims that the big ticket item—replacement of the timing chain guides—has already been done. Let’s see if this hot wagon’s price will make it one and done. If you’re a big fan of David Bowie’s Cha-Cha-Cha-Changes you might have wanted to turn and face the strange that was represented by last Friday’s 1988 BMW 750iL. That V12 luxury sedan it had gone through a number of transmutations to achieve its current, supercharged and manually transmitted form. For the rest of us however, its reported need of a new clutch (damn that manual conversion!) and $6,500 asking price evoked more the feeling of wham, bam, no thank you ma’am and the heavily modded car went down in a massive 87-percent Crack Pipe loss. My favorite Bowie song is Heroes, off the 1977 album of the same title. This disk was the second of Bowie’s ‘Berlin … [Read more...] about At $5,000, Could This ‘Work Needing’ 2004 Audi S4 Avant Still Work for You?

Tweet TweetSo…you’ve got an estate…you old man! It does 100km/h in…a minute or something? At least, I hope it’s big enough to carry all your kids… Probably this is everyone’s reaction when they hear about estates. Well, Audi shows the dark side of its D-segment estate once again, launching the new generation of the mighty S4 Avant. To build a car that sprints to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds and still transport your family with its luggage it’s quite an achievement, especially when the measured average fuel consumption is only 7.5 l/100km in the NEDC cycle. The equivalent CO2 emission is 175 g/km. They developed a new V6 3.0l TFSI engine, capable of 354 hp, thanks to the direct gasoline injection and the turbocharging. More, the maximum torque of 500 Nm is available from 1,370 up to 4500 rpm and is sent to all the wheels via the Quattro system. It allows the power to be delivered at each axle in continuously variable ratios, while the active … [Read more...] about Bodybuilders In Suits: Audi S4 And S4 Avant
