The 2011 Audi S4’s base trim says it all. The Premium Plus gets you luxury and performance with AWD stability from the rear-biased Quattro system’s front and rear limited-slip differentials. A 3.0-liter V6 has been supercharged here and can be attached to a 6-speed manual or 7-speed dual-clutch automated manual. Traction and stability control provide added confidence when pushing through corners, and you’ll do it in comforted style with the heated power bucket seats wrapped in leather and Alcantara. There’s a full power package here including heated power mirrors with turn signals, a power sunroof and keyless entry and a satellite-ready CD and MP3 player with iPod interface and Bluetooth. Front and rear seats get adjustments for the tri-zone automatic climate controls, and the tilt and telescoping, leather-wrapped steering wheel gets stereo controls. Rain-sensing wipers get heated washer nozzles, and automatic bi-xenon headlights get the same treatment. The S4 rides on a sport suspension and 18-inch alloy wheels covering four-wheel antilock discs. Foglights can be found up front while a spoiler graces the rear.
If you want a bit more from your 2011 Audi S4, the Prestige trim will add a few extra amenities to your BMW chaser. Most notably, a navigation system with voice recognition has been added, along with a rear-view camera and rear-obstacle detection system. You’ll also gain a memory system to govern the driver’s heated leather bucket seat and the heated power mirrors, which come with integrated turn signals. The power package, which also includes a sunroof, gets keyless access and start added as well, and the stereo is upgraded here to a Bang and Olufsen system with hi-def radio, iPod interface, Bluetooth and satellite. Riding on a sport suspension and the Audi Quattro rear-biased AWD, the S4 gets dual limited-slip differentials and traction and stability control to mitigate power to the 19-inch alloys found at all four corners. Power delivery is made via a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 through either a 6-speed manual or 7-speed, dual-clutch automated manual transmission. You’ll still get all the features of the Premium Plus trim, like tri-zone automatic climate controls with front and rear adjustment, rain-sensing wipers with heated wiper nozzles, automatic bi-xenon headlights with washers and a leather-wrapped tilt and telescoping steering wheel. The rest of the interior is covered in a combination of leather and Alcantara as well as aluminum trim that’s appropriate for the sporty elegance of the S4. Foglights up front provide additional illumination, while a rear spoiler keeps your back end planted at speed.
