Great when I can take my husband and teenagers up to the mountains for a ski trip without any major complaints. see full Audi A4 / S4 review
2007 4dr Sedan 255-horsepower 3.1L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Excellent for cruising but lateral support is sorely lacking for cornering. Needs power & memory for the tilt/telescope steering wheel. Good view out of and around vehicle. see full Audi A4 / S4 review

These are the most comfortable and supportive seats I have ever sat in and this includes luxury cars like the Lincoln Town Car. The extendable thigh support is a bonus. see full Audi A4 / S4 review

2007 4dr Sedan 255-horsepower 3.1L V6

Limited leg room, especially during ingress and egress. Hump bisects leg room. Seat cushion needs to be 1-2 inches higher. see full Audi A4 / S4 review

2006 4dr Sedan turbocharged 200hp 2.0L I4

Sport seats were not provided to the US due to DOT crash testing regulations. This means the only seats available are the very flat and uncomfortable standard seats. Only the S4 has the Recaro option for the US. see full Audi A4 / S4 review
2006 4dr Sedan turbocharged 200hp 2.0L I4

For tall passengers, the front seats will need to be pushed back in order to provide front leg room. Width of the cockpit side-to-side is not substantial. see full Audi A4 / S4 review

340 HP in a family sedan disguise. Always ample power for any situation and grin inducing acceleration for the rare times you can use it. see full Audi A4 / S4 review

2007 4dr Wagon turbocharged 200hp 2.0L I4

The turbo is really cool. Step on the gas and it goes. My last two Audi were not turbo. This is really cool. Though I do have to get use to the difference between turbo and non turbo coming off first gear. see full Audi A4 / S4 review
2007 2dr Convertible turbocharged 200hp 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Turbo moves the car like a rocket but still gets 30mpg. Transmission has sport mode which delays shifting too early. AWD is fantastic in rain or snow. see full Audi A4 / S4 review
2007 4dr Wagon turbocharged 200hp 2.0L I4

The engine pulls hard from low rpm thanks to the turbo which makes town drive easy. Just a wonderful engine. Gearbox well match and extremely smooth. Just a very satisfying experience to drive. see full Audi A4 / S4 review

The incredibly high revving beefy V8 provides for an amazing "throw you back in your seat" feeling even at low RPMs but ESPECIALLY at high RPMs. see full Audi A4 / S4 review
2007 4dr Sedan 255-horsepower 3.1L V6

Quattro! -- a must in the northern midwest. Powerful exhaust note. Great Sport mode in 6-speed automatic tranny. Top notch control with Tiptronic paddle shifters. More than enough power for passing. see full Audi A4 / S4 review
2006 Audi A4 / S4 Powertrain: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2006 4dr Sedan turbocharged 200hp 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Auto Transmission has no clue what the engine is doing, or maybe even that it's a transmission. When it has showed for work, it constantly shuffles around through it's 6 gears at any speed below 45mph. Above 45MPH you will always find it in 6th gear, always. It annoyingly favors unlocking the torque converter vs. downshifting when additional power is needed for hills, acceleration, etc. This causes a surge of power, rarely necesarry, which causes you back off the throttle, where it then upshifts back to sixth and slows. A repitious and annoying cycle to stay at 45-55mph when climbing hills. When it does decide to drop out of 6th gear, it then immediatly locks the torque converter back to the engine. The constant lock and unclocking torque converter and and gear hunting under 45 mph is annoying. The manual control feature is a nice addition but the entire gear chift is cheaply made and clearly taken from a Passat. Power is good and acceleration brisk from the 2.0 when the turbo is spooled & warm. Many times, power is not uniform and unpredictible. The engine is very noisy, and sounds like a very old sewing machine at idle. The torque band is solid and the car pulls well. see full Audi A4 / S4 review
