Benefits of Driving a 2012 Audi S4 Sedan

The A4 features an impressive 8-speed automatic transmission, and with the sure-footedness of Audi's world-class quattro all-wheel-drive system, a powerful engine, the availability of a wagon and the always-addictive performance of the S4 model, the lineup has a little something for everyone.

What's new for 2012?

For 2012, the A4 and S4 return mostly unchanged. Most of the updates have to do with the availability of option packages. A revised S-Line package features added adaptive suspension and Drive Select control, giving the driver control over suspension settings at the touch of a button. New standard equipment includes daytime running lights, automatic headlights and rain sensing wipers.

Model Strengths

  • Engineering quality
  • excellent standard feature list
  • available all-wheel drive
  • wagon available
  • S4 model's performance

Model Review

The A4 is available as a 4-door sedan or as a 5-door station wagon, dubbed the 'Avant.' Power comes from a 2.0-L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, which delivers 211 horsepower and 258 lb-feet of torque. A new 8-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission and 6-speed manual transmission are available on quattro models, while front-drive models receive a continuously variable transmission as standard equipment.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
