Though user-friendliness may not be the vehicle's strong point, the 2008 Audi S4 has luxurious features that befit its starting price.
The standard features that one finds when sitting down inside the Audi S4 are numerous and, for the most part, well-executed. Kelley Blue Book reports that “the 2008 Audi S4 is packed with such goodies as a…power moonroof” and “12-way power Recaro seats with power lumbar support.” Those two barely begin to scratch the surface, however, as Ed-munds mentions that “silk Nappa leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated mirrors, Bluetooth and a 10-speaker audio system” all come standard as well. Furthermore, Cars.com points out that all Audi 2008 S4s “are prewired for either Sirius or XM Satellite Radio.”
With standard features like Nappa leather and a power moonroof, it’s hard to imagine what sorts of options Audi has to tempt Audi S4 buyers with, but Kelley Blue Book assures us “the S4’s options sheet is extensive.” Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com certainly back that up and reveal Audi 2008 options such as “adaptive, high-intensity headlamps that pivot to illuminate the road around curves,” according to ForbesAutos. ConsumerGuide reports that an available “Audio Pkg.” includes an upgraded “Bose sound system” for around $1,000, while “carbon-fiber interior trim” is also available. Edmunds says there is an avail-able “navigation system” for the Audi S4, though they also note it “isn’t a model of user-friendly design.” ForbesAutos expands upon the statement, commenting that “the optional navigation system” on the 2008 Audi S4 “includes Audi’s Multi-Media Interface,” which they say “can be difficult to operate and may distract drivers from the road, but it’s less annoying than similar systems offered by other European imports.”
