In the fashion world they say that a particular style never dies, it will come back at some point. The cyclical nature of designs repeating themselves appears also to be coming true in the motor industry. BMW’s new 5 Series harks back to a much squarer shape of the past as opposed to the swooping curves we have all become used to. This is also true in Audi’s new S4.
Taking the stocky stance of its 1990’s siblings, the all new S4 pulls off the harsh lines rather well. We also quite like the new form factor for the daytime running lights and subtle new bonnet creases. But beneath the uniform bodywork is something to get all excited about. How does a supercharged 3.0 litre V6 engine sound? Marked up at 328BHP and paired with its Quattro drive system, the new S4 just gets better and better.
Can it tango with 3 Series? I guess we shall just have to wait and see.
