If you want a perfectly good car, check out the 2018 Audi S4. This car checks all the boxes. It’s well-made, practical, safe, reliable and affordably priced. Industry analysts can’t find a negative thing to say about it. It boasts a 354-horsepower V6 engine mated with an eight-speed transmission and features all-wheel drive. This makes the S4 perfect for safely and comfortably traversing city and country roads. Plus, Audi offers a host of technological and aesthetic conveniences you can add for little or nothing. And its $50,900 starting price is a lot less than its closest competitors. Check one out at Audi Of Tucson, and you are sure to see that it’s much better than the competition.

The 2018 Audi S4 is a perfect example of the ideal modern luxury sedan. It offers comfort, practicality, reliability and safety, is aesthetically pleasing and as technologically advanced as a space ship. It far outclasses the top luxury cars of the past. The vehicle’s attributes of style, safety and capability are contemporary virtues in an automotive world where bland standardization and look-at-me frivolity across segments and brands has become the order of the day. That’s even true for car companies celebrating 70 to 100 years in the industry.

Its turbocharged, V6 3.0-liter engine delivers 354 horsepower along with 369 pound-feet of torque. The S line marks Audi’s entrance into the sport market. And the 2018 S4 delivers performance that’s better and more engaged than anything BMW and Mercedes is offering in its class. This vehicle is a sporty upgrade on Audi’s $36,000 A4. The more dynamic-looking version of the S4 is Audi’s coupe, the 2018 S5.

The 2018 Audi S4 produces 164 more horsepower as well as increased pound-feet of torque of 133 compared to the A4 model. This enables the 2018 S4 to go from zero-to-60 in 4.4 seconds and go as fast as 155 miles per hour at top speed or 130 mph using all-weather tires. Plus, whether in low gear or punching it on the highway, the S4 is smooth and quiet unlike some competing sports models. The 2018 S4 also gets an impressive 30 mpg in highway driving.

The steering in this five-person sedan is firm, the brakes are effective and the vehicle is a capable, dutiful, tasteful, daily driver that’s not flashy. The updated interior is the vehicle’s most exciting feature. It has a flat-bottomed, three-spoke steering wheel, LED interior lighting, auto-dimming lights and a panoramic sunroof that all come standard. Adding the technology package gives you navigation, a system providing side and rear crash-avoidance and Audi’s Virtual cockpit with its 12.3-inch information cluster displaying audio, phone, infotainment and navigation facts digitally and in one place.

The seats in the 2018 Audi S4 are delightfully firm, have a massage function and power-operated side bolsters all standard. There’s lots of headroom and legroom and the interior feels, light, airy and uncomplicated. The split-folding rear seat back adds to the trunk’s 13 cubic feet of space and makes stowing and transporting groceries, sports gear and even appliances a breeze.

The 2018 Audi S4 is the perfect modern luxury sedan.

Audi has recently given the public a peek at its second-generation 2019 A7 and there are lots of reasons to like this vehicle. The sleek-looking fastback has some pretty cool technology that includes very clever lights as well as cutting-edge driverless tech. The front grill has radar and lidar sensors and it looks great even from behind with its distinctive rear LED lights. Inside, the automobile features Audi’s latest version of their MMI infotainment system and the rear wing has a crease above it which elegantly holds the fuel filter. This Sportback doesn’t just look good, it’s practical as well. While it’s a practical car, you may want to push it to its limits, and taking one for a spin at Audi Of Tucson should be in order.

Audi has included many details from its 2014 Prologue concept car in the new Audi A7. That could include matrix LED headlights which contain some very clever laser spotlights, if it gets NHTSA approval. This type of lighting technology is one of the new A7’s key features. This helped to make it stand out at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this year. The new 2019 Audi A7 is a gorgeous automobile. It also has the class-leading infotainment system, level 3 autonomous driving capability and advanced headlights found in Audi’s flagship A8 sedan.

The new A7 also has the convenience of four doors as well as a hatchback and coupe-like elegance and styling seen on the Audi Prologue concept in 2014. The 2019 A7 is low, wide and has flared rear-wheel arches, but at 16.3 feet long and 6.3 feet wide, it’s a big car. And Audi uses that space well. Compared to the outgoing model, it has more legroom and, thanks to headlining bump-outs, more headroom as well. With 18.9 cubic feet of luggage space with the seat up, the trunk is huge. Fold down the rear seats and the new A7 has 49.i cubic feet of luggage space.

The lights on the 2019 Audi A7 are among its most striking features. The LED lights in the front and rear go through an intriguing animated cycle when you start up the vehicle. According to Audi, the headlights’ 12 lighting segments mimic the 0 and 1 binary digits. Its laser spotlights project much farther than conventional high-beams. Plus, the driver can control the shape of the matrix LEDs beams right down to each individual pixel. This allows for the use of full beam without oncoming drivers being blinded. However, there are some Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard and NHTSA regulations the headlights must pass before they can be used in the U.S.

Still, the vehicle’s vast roominess in the luggage compartment, innovative new lighting technology, sleek styling, convenience getting in and out and the new infotainment system with its two haptic-feedback touchscreens and other advancements make the 2019 Audi A7 and excellent choice. While the new driverless technology and headlights still have a few regulatory hurdles to overcome, this bigger, more beautiful, technologically advanced vehicle has a growing number of buyers very excited. All those helpful upgrades mean many people will want to own the second-generation 2019 Audi A7.
