What Car? says...
A bit like how Clark Kent uses his glasses to hide his true identity, Audi’s S models are ideal if you want superhero performance but don’t necessarily want everyone else to know about it. The Audi S4 is a great embodiment of that idea; it’s impressively quick while remaining almost invisible to the uninitiated onlooker.
The S4 is the middle step on Audi’s performance ladder, with the regular A4 below and the powerful RS 4 above. The latter is a close match to the Mercedes-AMG C63 and the BMW M3, whereas the S4 is traditionally a rival to the Mercedes-AMG C43 . And, like its rival, the S4 doesn’t pander to your taste for speed at the expense of your need for space; should you need added practicality, the S4 is available as either a saloon or estate (Avant in Audi-speak). Its Jaguar XE P300 and Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce rivals, on the other hand, are saloon only.
