The S4, a high performance model, can only come with the all-wheel drive. It runs on a supercharged 333 hp 3.0 liter V6 engine. As for transmissions, you can choose between a 6 speed manual and a 7 speed dual-clutch automated manual. The 7-speed option is designed to function just like an automatic. It has 18-inch wheels and its interior and exterior trim is unique to the model.

Standard safety features include the traction control, ABS, antiskid system, curtain-side airbags, front-side airbags, and rear-side airbags.

There are also other available features like the navigation system, blind-spot alert, keyless access & engine start, rearview camera, wireless cell phone link, and the Audi Drive Select.

The navigation system uses GPS technology to help you detect traffic flows, roads, and other directional information you may need while driving.

Blind spot alerts will detect obstacles that are not within your view either directly or through a mirror. This is intended to help you when parking or backing up, or in other instances where blind spots are involved.

The keyless access & engine start feature allows you to unlock your car with the pull of the car door as well as start the engine with the push of a button.

When you back up your car, the rearview camera will show on your screen what’s behind your car.

With the wireless cell phone link, you can make calls and use your cell phone wirelessly and, in some instances, even make voice commands with it while you’re driving your car.

Lastly, the Audi Drive Select lets you customize steering and suspension settings.

According the expert ratings, the Audi A4’s all-wheel drive 2.0T sedan with automatic transmissions garner an average total score of 69, which is definitely much better than the typical premium compact car, which scores a below average 66.2. This is why the Audi scores an 8 in terms of its overall value within its class, being the better model among the bunch.
