    Car and Driver vs S4 from KARCIS.CLUB audi-s4-quattro-page Newer evidence.

    About Audi. Audi is the most popular brand among used cars. The annual output is 2 million vehicles.

    Would welcome any views on an age old debate: Audi vs Bmw. In this instance the i vs the new s4. Over the years I have switched from one.

    Drove the a5, s4, is as well before making a decision. Power is nothing without traction. However, I would say the main point about the shifter is: Follow the self-promotion rules. The car was a total surprise, not quite as lairy as a BMW but there was 'feel', and in 'dynamic' mode the rear was almost keen to come out an play some especialy when I mustered the courage to switch of the ESP.

    Rank your children in order from worst to best. Not easy, is it? Yet that's the task we've been given for this month's Big Test. Small sport sedans are to automotive journalists what paparazzi are to the Kardashians: We wouldn't exist without them. Flip side of that coin: It's hard to imagine the car world would be so crammed with smallish, sporting, executive rides if it weren't for the four-plus-decade-long chorus of praise we've collectively hurled at BMW and the 3 Series, including the before it.

    Hey, they are good. And not only are the Bimmers good, but all the cars competing with the original are pretty sweet as well. And they're getting sweeter all the time. What do we car-writer types dig so much about sport sedans? Handling prowess is muy importante, as far as we're concerned. Normally, all we'd care about is which one of our five candidates will set your hair on fire the fastest as you whip down a canyon road. However, there are a couple of things working against that particular methodology this month.

    Lesser-engined versions of both can be had as front-drivers, and the cars are transformed into performance-oriented machines by the addition of four wheels driven. The other factor is that this is our new Big Test, where adult-themed issues such as safety, value, and fuel efficiency are given much more than short shrift. If all you care about is how well the cars drive, read the Ride and Handling section, and you're done.

    Back quickly to the beginning: I know I've personally said very nice things in writing about four of the five contenders the Lexus is brand-spankin' new , and as an editorial unit, Motor Trend has sung the praises of each.

    What am I getting at? The finishing order of this comparison test is sure to make exactly no one happy. But that's why we publish letters and have comments -- so everyone may cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war. With all that in mind, let's start this Big Test. As associate online editor Benson Kong found, "Ride is firm all the time, in a good, sporty way. The handling is superb. You can just thrash this car and it keeps wanting more," said associate editor Scott Evans.

    Why so darn good? Associate road test editor Carlos Lago nailed it: It even has the smoothest ride of the group at moderate speeds. The Caddy is also -- incredibly -- the lightest. Of course, the ATS showed up on all-season tires, which hurt its braking distance and figure-eight time compared with other any ATS we've tested, but it truly was the best to drive. The Audi S4 is the numbers champ of this test, and it's no slouch in the real world.

    True, the car suffered from Audi 's notorious "rubbery" steering feel, but as Evans pointed out, "the steering is quick and accurate at least. That's good for a Sunday drive, and not so good for a Monday morning slog to the office. The S4 has Audi's totally trick sport rear differential, which allows you to fully blast out of corners.

    It was Lago's favorite part of the car. Oddly, the BMW features the laziest handling here. Said Lago, "I don't like the steering. Like the S4s, it's detached. Not a lot, but some," he continued. Adding all that AWD hardware sure didn't help the ix out.
