Hi,
Can you tell me what the difference is between a 1994 s4 and a 1995 s6. Is the s6 just a facelift s4 or is there more to it than that.

The S4 has pro con 10 which is the restraint system if your involved in a heavy frontal impact. Steel cables are attached to the gearbox, steering column and front seatbelts, so as the engine and gearbox comes back and downward in a pre determined manner, the steel cables pulls the steering wheel into the dash away from the drivers head.

No airbags on the S4 ( saying that as I don't have them on mine... not sure the S4  had them as well as procon 10) but the S6 does have  airbags, not sure IF airbags replaced pro con 10 or if the car had both, you got me there !!

There is subtle differences on the edge of the bonnet around the grill and front wings around the headlights are subtly different. S6 dash dials has a silver ring around the gauges and on my S4 I have a clock where the S6 has a voltage gauge.



Also the S6 has / had EDL on the rear diff, on my S 4 I have a button to manually lock the rear diff which also cuts ABS up to about 20 mph I think.The S6 has it tied into traction control.

Other than that they're the same

Thanks for the info.
Did the s6 have lowered suspension. Are the front wings the same on both models and just the bonnet and front bumper different.
Thanks, brian

here we go..........

the S6plus instrument cluster colours, blue was common but they were also available in black and grey. The telltale was the 300 kph max (instead of 280) and the S6plus decal on the tach instead of the S6 decal.

The front wings are not the same, as already stated, it's very subtly different around the headlights, also the headlights on the S6 is slightly arrower and it's more rounded around the grill.



I didn't realise the S6 Plus had blue dials !! Not sure I would want multi coloured dials though ....

I have new unused S6 Plus front grill and bootlid badges in my model display cabinet
