Since the S4 has the highest power output within tier 2, it is one of the quickest accelerating cars of its range. This comes at the expense of handling as the S4 is not as responsive as less powerful and lighter vehicles.
Need for Speed: Shift
The S4 appears in Need for Speed: Shift as an unlocked Tier 1 vehicle with a $42,000 price tag and 4.50 car rating.
Shift 2: Unleashed
The S4 appears in Shift 2: Unleashed as a Modern Road vehicle with a $26,000 price tag. It has a D 480 performance rating and a 3.43 handling rating.
