3.0 TFSI manual and S-Tronic (dual clutch) comparison by Motorweek in the 2013 B8 S4 and 2013 B8 S5S5
Very nice comparison here from Motorweek who took a B8 S4 sedan with the supercharged 3.0 TFSI V6 and dual clutch transmission versus the new B8 S5 that Audi updated with the 3.0 TFSI supercharged V6 as well. The difference here being that the B8 S5 is manua versus the dual clutch B8 S4. So what were their results with the two cars?
Well, the dual clutch S4 was the quicker and faster of the two. 0-60 came in 4.7 seconds and the 1/4 mile in 13.2@106. The manual S5 gets to 0-60 in 4.9 and the 1/4 mile in 13.4@105. Fairly close, but the dual clutch wins as usual in direct comparisons.
