Updates to the 2015 Audi A4, S4 and A4 Allroad are in trim, the most significant coming in the form of additional standard features. Elsewise, the cars carry over last year's appearance and mechanical specs. A4 and Allroad models share a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine (2.0 TFSI; 220 hp/258 lb-ft of torque), and the S4 uses a supercharged V6 rated at 333 hp and 325 lb-ft. The A4 starts out as a front-driver with a continuously variable transmission (CVT); the addition of Audi's Quattro all-wheel drive system comes with a six-speed manual or optional eight-speed automatic. Allroad models come with the eight-speed, and the S4's spec includes a six-speed manual that can be optioned to a seven-speed dual-clutch automated manual.
A4 and Allroad trim levels are Komfort, Progressiv and Technik; the S4 can be ordered in Progressiv and Technik trims.
