Euro NCAP has awarded the S4 Avant its maximum five-star crash-test rating in recognition of the range of protective components that are featured as standard. Six airbags and ISOFIX child-seat anchors on the front passenger seat and outer rear seats are just some of the passive safety features included.
Infotainment in abundance
The S4 Avant boasts an array of audio and navigation features. As well as a 10.1-inch touchscreen display (which includes 3D mapping, points of interest, easy route-planning options, among other things), a 10-speaker sound system is installed as standard. You can also stream your personal audio collection, thanks to Bluetooth connectivity – or tune into your favourite stations via DAB radio.
Powerful performance as standard
A 3.0-litre 342bhp diesel engine is issued with entry-level trims. Paired with eight-speed Tiptronic transmission, this produces 700Nm of torque, 0-60mph in approximately 4.7 seconds, and a top speed of 155mph. It also enables the S4 Avant to return as much as 45.6mpg, ensuring that this car isn’t quite the gas-guzzler that you might anticipate.
