The 2014 Audi S4 goes from 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds, thanks—in part—to a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine. This speed is only a few fractions of a second slower than most of the S4’s major competition.
As the sport version of the Audi A4, the S4 offers drivers an enhanced driving experience thanks to an upgraded powertrain and turbocharged engine. Obviously, this means that the S4 is the faster of the two Audis—but how, exactly, does it compare to other sports cars in its class?
According to Kelley Blue Book, the 2014 Audi A4 goes from 0 to 60 mph in a swift 4.9 seconds. This means you’ll go from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds and 0 to 200 km/h in 20.6 seconds. The overall time it takes to travel a quarter mile is 13.5 seconds.
Which Audi S4 engine is the fastest?
Because the Audi S4 is already the sport-focused upgrade to the A4, it only comes available with a single engine—a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 that offers 333 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque.
Compared to the A4’s 220-horsepower 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, the S4 is a major upgrade!
Can it beat the competition?
A 4.9-second 0 to 60 time is quite impressive—only absolute speed demons would consider that slow. But to really get an idea of how well the 2014 S4 engine performs, we have to compare its speed to its competitors.
Here are the estimated 0-60 times for five vehicles in the same class:
As you can see, the 2014 Audi S4 is quite average, keeping up with most of the vehicles on our list. If it is outperformed, it is by mere fractions of a second—meaning none of these sports sedans are embarrassing the S4 in a race.
