I’ve been having a blast spending a week with the mini-beast that is the 2015 Audi S4 3.0T quattro S tronic. Aside from driving it around LA, I’m taking the car on a few roadtrips, first to Pacific Beach then to the Beverly Hills Hotel.

The S4 just may be the perfect combination of style, power, performance and economy

When it’s not being thrown around some curves on Mulholland or devouring freeway miles, it’s a perfect balance of usable sedan and serious sports car.

With 333 HP and 325 LB FT of torque, the S4 really moves. It’s all joined to the pavement with Audi’s amazing quattro all-wheel-drive system. Whether cruising on the freeway or whipping around the canyons, the suspension really adjusts to the environment and delivers a great driving experience. I especially like the red and black leather sport seats, which look totally over the top, yet work great in those canyon runs.
