An Insider Look at the Auto Mechanics of Audi’s All-New S4
The Audi S4 is a favorite among automotive professionals and car enthusiasts alike. The German automaker unveiled its 2017 model at Frankfurt and it is nothing short of impressive. The S4 features a brand-new engine—a 3.0-litre V6 that’s capable of producing 354 horsepower—which takes the sedan from 0-60mph (0-97km/h) in under 5 seconds.
For its new S4 model, Audi decided to move away from its supercharger engine and instead went with a turbocharged direct-injection engine. The automaker claims that the new engine will provide much better fuel-efficiency, getting close to 8.8 L/100km—auto mechanics can agree that this range is quite impressive. The new Audi S4 will hit markets in 2017.
