2017 Audi S4 gets from 0-60 in 4.7: Dang

Audi debuted the 2017 S4 at the Frankfurt motor show, and it’s impressive. The heart of the new S4 is a 354 hp 3.0-liter V6 that will rocket the sedan to 60 mph in under five seconds. Audi moved away from supercharging, and instead going with turbocharging and direct-injection. The move to turbocharging helps the A4 sip fuel, coming in at 31.8 mpg, according to Audi.

Behind the V6 is an eight-speed tiptronic transmission that’s sending power to the wheels via the quattro all-wheel-drive system. The AWD system’s center differential normally separates power 60/40 with the majority going to the rear, but is capable of transferring up to 70 percent of power to the front or 85 percent of power to the rear, depending on circumstances.

A redesigned front suspension features a five-link setup on all four corners, allowing for optimum handling. Variable speed-dependent dynamic steering is optional, with the standard equipment being electromechanical. Five-spoke 18-inch wheels roll around on 245/40-18s as standard, but 19-inch wheels are available from GmbH. 

You should be able to pick up one of these little rockets next year. Until then, you can scratch your head while watching the ad.
