An undisguised prototype for Audi‘s next-gen S4 performance saloon was captured testing in the Alps. And yes, it doesn’t look all that different from the regular 2016 A4 sedans with the S Line package, bar some minor tweaks.
These include the slightly bigger air intakes on the corners of the front bumper, the black matte mirror housings and window trimmings (we may or may not see a different shade on the production car), and of course, a more prominent rear diffuser with the “S” performance models’ trademark quad pipes.
We’ve yet to get a glance of the S4’s interior, but expect something along the…lines of the ‘S Line’ interior package with a sporty steering wheel, body-hugging front seats and flashier trimmings.
Both the pictured S4 sedan and its more practical Avant sibling will keep the current supercharged 3.0-liter V6 gasoline engine, tweaked to deliver around 340 to 360-horses, up from 328hp (333PS), connected to Audi’s quattro all-wheel drive system and a S-Tronic dual clutch transmission.
