2017 Audi S4 loses supercharger, manual gearbox opts for turbocharging

Audi unveiled the 2017 Audi S4 sedan and S4 Avant at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. The new Audi S4 doesn’t differ visually much from the new A4 apart from a few minor upgrades such as the quad exhaust tail pipes along with a S-specific rear diffuser, aluminium finishes on the external rear view mirrors, etc. The most important change in the new S4 is the adoption of turbocharging technology in place of the current model’s supercharger tech.

The 2017 Audi S4 is powered by a newly developed V6 petrol engine with turbocharging. The 3.0-litre unit now produces 354 hp and 500 Nm of torque between 1300 to 4500 rpm, leaving the current car behind in both power and torque.

Inside, the new S4 gets S sport seats, covered in a combination of pearl Nappa leather and Alcantara in the colors ebony, rotor gray and magma red. The seats get adjustable side sections, integrated headrests, and a pneumatic massage function.
