Expert Quotes:

MMI interface software was a little slow to scroll through radio station lists
AutoWeek

The redesigned center stack is easy to use, and MMI is now a part of the A4's layout
Motor Trend

Myriad sensors on the new A4 made so many beeps and boops while we were driving, we sometimes felt like we were in a video game.
Edmunds

it's sure easy to fall in love with the Danish-made Bang & Olufsen stereo system, whose 505 watts pump out clean and crisp sound through 14 speakers
Road & Track

The car's navigation system is behind the curve, lacking external data sources for traffic or other useful information.
CNET

Apart from its variety of body styles, drivetrains, and safety systems, the 2011 Audi A4 and S4 offer a host of standard and optional features that are among the best in this class.

Leather upholstery is standard, along with Sirius Satellite Radio; a CD player; cruise control; a sunroof; and Audi's MMI system, which uses a rotary controller to aid the driver in setting climate, audio, and phone functions on the go. It's a menu-based system like BMW's iDrive, but the software's a little more user-friendly and logical.

The Premium Plus Package—which our editors found to be a decent value—includes tri-zone climate control, Bluetooth, heated seats, a garage-door opener, trip computer, and rain/light sensors, and an auto-dimming mirror, among other features. The sound system lacks a USB input, but turn it up with SD or CD inputs and the sound is rich and satisfying.

Bluetooth, a navigation system, Sirius real-time traffic and an iPod connectivity kit are options, as is a high-quality Bang & Olufsen audio system. Audi gives buyers a choice of wood and leather colors, and the lighter palette introduced in the current generation is quite handsome and makes the cabin feel airy. For 2011, HD Radio is newly available with the navigation system, Nutmeg Laurel wood replaces Beige Birch, and there's a new Titanium Sport package.

Standard equipment is richer in the S4. In addition to the sport suspension and host of other upgrades, the 2011 Audi S4 includes heated washers, sport seats with alcantara inserts, aluminum door inserts, and the three-zone climate control system.

Conclusion

The 2011 Audi A4 and S4 are very well-equipped sport sedans, though it's easy to add options and end up with a much higher price.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
