On the topic of new versus old, this S4 does something that previous generations just haven’t. It’s in the way everything is tied together – no single part of the driving experience dominates any other. It’s a quality that’s increasingly rare in modern cars and difficult to describe. Everything seems to work together toward the common goal of producing a smile on the driver’s face. The engine is something we can picture God himself using, yes, but even the steering is good. And that’s saying a lot for an S4. It takes a scant 2.2 turns of the wheel to go from lock to lock, and there’s quite a bit of feedback, too.
