The S4 is meant to slot between the pedestrian A4 and the hard-core RS4 (if Audi makes one this time around).

It wouldn't be a hopped-up Audi without four tailpipes!

As one would expect by this point, the S4 can be loaded up with all manner of active and passive safety systems, including a traffic-jam assist that works from 0 to 40 mph.
