In the following video, we examine the 2013 Audi S4. This Audi S4 had a manual transmission, upgraded technology and a bit of magic known as a sport differential. The S4 ticks almost every box when it comes to a compact sports sedan; it’s fun to drive, and the ride is composed. Under the hood is 333hp of supercharged V6 that provides more force than the number might indicate.
When speaking about a $50,000+ sports sedan, it needs to be good in all categories. When you spend that kind of money for a small car the ride should be composed, it should handle better than the average econobox, power should be more than enough, interior comfort and styling should be far above average. In the following video, we do not include any of those categories. Why? This S4 was unique in that it has a manual transmission and the upgraded $1250 sport differential. As a result, we spent the day going through those two features in detail. The second reason we didn’t talk a bit about any other content is because we have purchased a 2014 Audi S4 Premium Plus with the dual-clutch transmission as a long-term test car. Stay tuned for a comprehensive review and deep dive into the newest member of the Autosavant garage.
