Autocar India reports that Audi’s S range of cars will soon come to India. Powered by the six cylinder 3.0 TFSI supercharged petrol engine making 333 hp of power and 440 Nm of torque, the S4 claims a fuel consumption of just 8.1 liters of fuel per 100 km (12.34 kpl) . The S4 sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 5.0 seconds laying down the power through the seven-speed S tronic gearbox and quattro permanent all-wheel drive. The sport suspension lowers the vehicle body by 20 millimeters (0.79 in), and a high-performance brake system provides powerful deceleration. The wheels are 18 inches in diameter.
The S6 is powered by a four-liter, twin-turbo V8 producing 420 hp and delivering 550 Nm of torque between 1,400 and 5,300 rpm. The innovative cylinder head concept, with the intake side on the outside and the exhaust side on the inside, provides for short gas paths with minimal flow losses for very spontaneous engine response. The two twin-scroll turbochargers ensure you have more than enough torque at low revs.
The 4.0 TFSI accelerates the S6 from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds and claims average fuel consumption of 9.7 liters per 100 km (10.39 kpl). Cylinder on demand, a newly developed cylinder management system that deactivates four of the eight cylinders under part load, ensure this optimal fuel efficiency. During these phases, Active Noise Control (ANC) largely eliminates intrusive noise by broadcasting a precise antiphase sound to the cabin through the sound system’s speakers. Low-frequency vibrations are eliminated by active engine bearings that use counterpulses to attenuate these vibrations.
Seven-speed S tronic, quattro permanent all-wheel drive system, featuring a self-locking center differential and torque vectoring transfers power from the crank to the tarmac. Available as an option is the sport differential, which actively distributes the power between the rear wheels.
The two new S models come standard with the adaptive air suspension sport. The tautly tuned air suspension with variable damping lowers the body by 10 millimeters (0.39 in). The front disc brakes behind the 19-inch wheels have matt black calipers with S6 logos. Audi offers carbon fiber-ceramic discs as an option. The Audi drive select dynamics system also encompasses the optional sport differential and dynamic steering.
Now that Audi has decided to bring in the S range to India, they have launched a Facebook campaign calling for your support. Find the campaign here and make sure you tag yourself there. We do want to acquaint ourselves with these ‘sporty yet not too sporty to kill your comfort’ range of cars from Audi don’t we?
