The Audi S4 turns to be a better all around car now and the V6 engine under its hood is far from being a downgrade. Physics do not lie as it stands witness to the car’s road performance.
The new V6 Audi engine runs at maximum 24.psi giving out 333 horse power when revving at 5500 rpm. The number is 11hp down from the third generation S4 which has a 4.2L V8.
You will not miss the two cylinders as the car has an excellent 22 lb-ft torque more, surpassing its predecessor. Running the engine between 2900 and 5300 rpm, it registers a striking 324 lb-ft torque. With these figures, it is evident that the 1.2L of displacement given up does not compromise the performance of the Audi S4.
The new version of the S4 accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in just 5.1 seconds, 0.8 seconds slower than the older generation. At fourth gear, it muscles its way from 50 to 75 mph in a mere 4.4 seconds which may be considered as a real road test when you need that power on the road.
The top speed is said to be 155 mph with issues not being forced to its cut off of 7000 rpm. The power is distributed to its four wheels following the Audi production tradition.
The numbers are achieved with better fuel efficiency tabulated at 27% as compared to the V8 of the old S4. The fuel rating for the S4 with the V6 engine is highly remarkable at 24.9 mpg.
Buyers may opt for the sedan or the wagon type. Any choice will be assuring satisfaction, aesthetic and performance wise. Audi scores!
