2018 Audi Cars
One of the pillars of the German luxury car business, Audi builds evertything fom the compact A3 sedan to te large Q7 SUV and R8 supercar. Volume sellers include the A4, A6 and Q5 crossover, while a recent push has seen several new TDI diesel options added to most models. Launched in 1998, the Audi TT sports coupe and convertible put the brand in the spotlight with dramatic new styling. Audi has a strong tradition of performance S models, while ultra high-performance cars bear the RS badge.
Dating back to 1909, in 1932 Audi merged with three other German automakers (Horch, DKW and Wanderer) to form Auto Union and creating the brand’s distinct four ring logo – one ring for each original automaker. Audi’s true claim to fame is its Quattro all-wheel drive technology that first debuted on the aptly named 1980 Audi Quattro.
Audi continues to provide customers with tech-filled luxury cars and a handful of very quick and capable performance cars including the R8 supercar and the RS7 Performance hatchback (Audi Sport).
