So as to compete with all other reputable auto companies, Audi has been consistently improving its car models. The production of cars is not as easy as winking so the company has been upgrading its older models, each at its own time. Up in the line of this upgrade is the Audi S4 that will hit the market soon as the 2019 Audi S4. From the look of things, after it made a debut in the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show, this car make will be a good buy. This compact sedan is explored below;
The German company recently unveiled the A4 design and it is no wonder that the S4 resembles it. The 2019 Audi S4 compact sedan is larger in size compared to the preceding model. Generally, it can be described as more aggressive and sharper due to the new outer design that is more aerodynamic. In fact, if it has the same measurements as the A4, then the model has a drag coefficient of 0.23! The headlamps in this car have a redesigned shape that is more angular and that incorporates the LED technology. Additionally, the grille has received an upgrade and so has the hood that has gentle creases around the fenders. The distinguishing factor between the S4 and the A4 is the different and bolder bumper that is mounted on the S4. This bumper has a lower splitter and the side intakes are improved. On the sides of the S4, there are 18 inch rims, but a 19 inch variant is optional. The car also has aluminium look mirror caps and black window trims. Similar to the outer part, the interior also borrows much from the A4 model.
The cabin is renewed to become neater. Since it is larger, there is more room for the passengers to sit comfortably on the sporty seats. The air vent strip on the dashboard ensures a continuous air supply and the center stack holds all the infotainment control buttons. The design is made more elegant by the new 8.3 inch color display that is mounted on the dashboard. The features in this car include LTE connectivity, WiFi, navigation system, free text function, a 10 speaker audio system, among others. Advanced security features have also been fitted including airbags, lane assist, adaptive cruise control, traffic jam assist, collision avoidance assist, among others. In the trim level with the S badge, more features are availed.
