Meet the New 2016 Audi S4. 

Audi has revealed its new S4 saloon and Avant models at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Considered to be Audi’s response to the BMW 340i and Jaguar XE S, the new S4 comes with more power, less weight and a new 3.0-litre TFSI turbo V6 petrol engine.

According to Audi, power is increased from 328bhp to 349bhp, with 0-62mph reached in 4.7-secs and a top speed of 155mph. The new S4 also claims a combined fuel economy figure of 38.2mpg and emissions of 170g/km.

Both, the S4 saloon and S4 Avant feature Audi’s Quattro four-wheel drive system, in addition to a new eight-speed automatic tiptronic gearbox, which cuts weight and improves durability. The new S4 is about 55kg lighter than its predecessor, due to the combination of alumium and steel used in its construction.

The exterior is typical to an Audi S design, but with a new-look rear bumper and diffuser, matt grey finish to the mirror housings and trim and a quartet of exhaust tips.

Inside there’s leather and alcantara ‘S’ sports seats, illuminated door sill trims and Audi’s new ‘virtual cockpit’ digital dash display with a 12.3in screen and a 3D sat-nav display.

Although prices have not been officially announced yet, a premium of around 10% over the outgoing car, which started at £39,610 for the saloon, is expected.  The new S4 models will go on sale in 2016.
