The Audi A a Special Executive Vehicle

Unlike the A2 model which was originally designed as a three door hatchback vehicle which later all and became more of a luxury family car, the Audi A4 which is also manufactured by the same German automotive maker "Audi" is a luxury executive car which can also be classified as a compact vehicle. According to the enumeration you might think that this is the successor to the A2 but, it actually is a successor of the Audi 80. This version became available as an "Advant" which is the name that Audi gave to station wagons and also to estate cars. The A4 was also available as a Cabriolet and sedan.

The production of this vehicle started in 1994 and ever since its introduction to the market there have been for generations (or versions) of this model, let's take a look at them: The B5 A4: The production of this version started in 1994 and was extended until 2001, this was originally introduced as a sedan which featured a standard front-wheel-drive however, many of the owners of the A4 preferred to go with the four-wheel-drive version. American buyers only have the option of acquiring a B5 A4 which had a V-6 engine, this was also the model which set the standard of quality and engineering for this manufacturer. The B6 A4: This vehicle was launched by the market in late 2000, it was inspired by the second-generation C5 Audi A6. The Avant version was launched in at the end of the second quarter of 2001, it featured a 50:50 front to rear torque distribution. The B7 A4: This model was heavily revised, it used a variation of the chassis featured in the B6, this is in reference to the Volkswagen B6 (PL46) platform which was still used in this version.

This revision was launched in 2004, the engine used featured a four valve per cylinder architecture because the five valve was not compatible with the FSI injection system. The B8 A4: This is the most recent version which was released in 2007 and it is still in production, the design of the chassis in this vehicle has been greatly improved -- the front axle was moved forward in relation to the engine which provided benefits in terms of stability and weight distribution, it also shares characteristics with the Audi A5 coupé. offers a great deal of information to the Audi A4 community through a very resourceful Audi A4 forum, visit us today!
