The 2012 Audi S4 is powered by an all-aluminum 3.0 TFSI supercharged V6 engine with 333 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque. Despite these remarkable figures, the S4 is able to achieve 28 mpg on the highway, a remarkable 27 percent improvement over the previous generation S4. With an immediately responsive drive-by-wire throttle system, the 3.0 TFSI offers an instant connection from driver input to a resulting surge of acceleration.
The 2012 S4 is available with a six-speed manual or the brilliant Audi seven-speed S tronic® dual-clutch transmission, which allows the driver to enjoy power from the 3.0 TFSI supercharged V6 in nearly uninterrupted bursts ? providing the perfect marriage of speed and comfort. The system works using dual clutches and twin input shafts, thereby allowing the computer to "predict" which gear the driver intends to use and prep the gear for action before it is selected.
Also available on the S4 is quattro with Sport rear differential, which gives the S4 a new level of road holding ability, by actively controlling the distribution of torque between the two rear wheels, effectively overdriving the outside wheel in corners. This "forces" the front end of the vehicle into the corner, thus eliminating understeer and creating more attainable excitement for the driver. In addition, the Sport rear differential works with ESP® during accident avoidance maneuvers to keep the S4 stable and composed in emergencies.
