Just because you’re ready to settle down and start a family doesn’t mean that you need to leave the exhilaration of having a fun sports car behind. Making the leap into have four doors can actually bump up the horsepower while simultaneously increasing the utility of your daily driver. I know that my Integra isn’t all that useful for hauling cargo (or passengers).
Two of the hottest currently available sports sedans are the Audi RS4 and the Lexus IS-F, both of which attack quite the premium market. The two cars are pitted directly against one another in this InsideLine video. They run them through a series of tests, like the skidpad, slalom, 0-60, and the quarter mile. The 416hp Lexus IS-F is a beefier version of the standard IS, just as the RS4 is a hopped version of the A4.
Which car is superior? It’s a battle between the Germans and the Japanese for your premium car-buying dollar, so hop on over to Edmunds to watch the vid and discover the winner.
