Audi realizes that its customers are after more than just performance, so the automaker has equipped the 2010 Audi S4 with much, much more than just performance-oriented features (although there are plenty of those).
The 2010 Audi S4 is a rare breed indeed, as Automobile Magazine reports that it "costs less than the car it replaces," yet offers the same level of luxury and even better performance. The 2010 Audi S4 has a base MSRP of "around $49,000," according to Motor Trend, putting it on par with the standard versions of BMW's and Mercedes' performance sedans. That base price "includes bi-Xenon headlamps, Bluetooth, heated leather sport seats," and LED daytime running lights, says Motor Trend. All 2010 Audi S4s also get "the third-generation MMI," which CNET raves has "absolutely beautiful Nvidia graphics" and "traffic data map overlays, 3D building data, text-to-speech turn by turn directions and voice control." The Auto Channel reviewers simply state that the 2010 Audi S4 has "more performance and technology than ever," and other reviews read by TheCarConnection.com agree.
One of the highlights on the 2010 Audi S4 is the ultra-premium "505-watt Bang & Olufsen audio arrangement" that Edmunds says "feeds 10 channels of sound through no fewer than 14 speakers." Cars.com reviewers love this sound system, declaring that "the audio quality is stunning" and "competing Bose and Harman units just don't come close" to matching the sound of the S4's upgraded unit.
Among the other options on the 2010 Audi S4, Motor Trend reports that most revolve around performance, including "$900 for the sport diff, $1000 for 19-in., RS-style wheels" and "$1300 for the S tronic," although convenience features include "$2400 for navigation" and "$900 for the Bang & Olufsen audio."
