Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
Similarly to the A4, the S4 has plenty of space up front for two to sit without clashing elbows, divided by a wide arm rest in the middle. Moving onto the back seats, the S4’s width makes it more comfortable than the Mercedes-AMG C43 for rear seat passengers – you can carry three adults in the back of an S4 for longer before they’ll start complaining.
The boot in the S4 – in both the saloon and Avant – is the same as that of the A4, and more convenient to use than that of the C43 due to being squarer in shape. There’s plenty of space for a set of golf clubs or the weekly shopping without having to fold the rear seats down. These, incidentally, can be split in a handy 40/20/40 layout as opposed to the more common 60/40 arrangement found in rivals. All S4 models also get handy netted storage areas on either side of the load area.
