2001 Audi S4 Overview

A practical family sedan or commuter car that turns into an open-road speedster for weekend fun, the 2001 Audi S4 has the extra power and punch for those who feel restricted by the A4. A 2.7-liter biturbo V6 engine hits 250-hp, matched with a standard 6-speed manual or optional 5-speed Tiptronic. Low-end torque starts around 1850 RPMs. Sports-tuned suspension, shocks, and brakes, and performance tires distinguish the S4 from its sister sedan.

New to the S4 lineup in 2001 is an S4 Avant, a 5-door wagon that adds extra cargo space (63.7 cu-ft when rear seats are folded). It features the same engine as the sedan. Now even parents can have a bit of fun on the road and still feel good about buying a practical utilitarian family car. The trunk features a removeable cargo net and retractable cover. Roof rails adorn the top for extra storage options. With the quattro AWD, the S4 sedan always easily beat most SUVs for handling and all-weather performance, and now the Avant can compete on storage capacity.

Also new in 2001 is standard Electronic Stability Program in both trims. Though truly sporty in performance, its styling still screams sophistication. An understated exterior hides a luxurious interior with lots of standard features. Packages add on heated seats, sunroof, navigation system, and remote garage opener.

2001 S4 performance and handling tops the list of highlights for owners. The agile manueverability, tight cornering, precise steering, and low-end torque give drivers chills as they open the S4 up. Turbo lag is greatly reduced in these new S4s, so acceleration is quick. The ride is smooth, yet energetic. They also like the comfortable seats and interior and how solid the car feels. The 2001 S4 receives complaints about the small backseat, limited headroom, and button-busy dash. Incredible fuel consumption is a result of enjoying the turbo power, and some owners are disappointed with the S4's reliability.
