Expert Rating

5.0 (Excellent)
17 City / 26 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

The BMW 335i has similar performance and is lighter, but is more expensive similarly equipped and all-wheel drive is an option. The Volvo S60 offers a powerful T6 version with distinctive styling for a lower price, but isn't as fast, agile or prestigious. The Mercedes-Benz C350 has a solid feel and well-finished interior but isn't as fast. The INFINITI G37 is very fast and spacious and represents good value, but the interior isn't as nicely finished and powertrain is less refined.

The S4 is one of the best compact sport sedans out there because of generations of refinement and high levels of refinement, luxury and performance. All models come well-equipped, especially considering the price. And they all have the same level of Audi brand recognition and prestige. The fact it's a great driver's car is just an added bonus. Anyone in the market for a smart sport sedan needs to drive the S4.
