New Audi S4 to offer ‘thrills and thrift’

A new Audi S4 is to be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in October and its maker believes it will offer drivers both thrills and thrift.

The new improved six cylinder TFSI engine that the car will have not only decisively outperforms its V8 predecessor but also achieves a 30 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions and 29mpg-plus fuel economy.

The new S4 and S4 Avant will open for order in November with price tags of approximately £36,000 and will reach their first UK customers in the spring of 2009.

Sharing its ‘TFSI’ designation with the six engines in the Audi range that combine single turbo charging with FSI direct injection, the completely new 3.0-litre V6 bucks the trend by using the alternative method of forced induction.

Speed freaks might be keen to learn that the S4 Saloon can go from 0-62mph in 5.1 seconds compared to the outgoing S4’s 5.6 seconds. Its top speed will be electronically limited to 155mph.
