As a member of the Volkswagen Group, Audi AG is among the most successful luxury automotive brands, delivering about 1.845 million vehicles globally in 2019.
The brand’s emblem, with its distinctive four rings, dates back to 1932. Each ring represents one of four previously independent manufacturers: Audi, DKW, Horch, and Wanderer.
Audi has produced a number of technical innovations in the years since, but their quattro all-wheel drive system is one of the most significant.
Current models are extensive, and include their sedans and coupes consisting of the A3, A4, A5, A6, A7, A8, and TT, along with their equivalent S-line and RS-line models. In general, the higher the number, the larger the car is.
SUVs and wagons, which keep the same naming convention, include the Q3, Q5, Q7, and Q8, as well as the “allroad” (wagon) versions of the A4 and A6 sedans, and the Audi e-tron – an all-electric hatchback/wagon.
Finally, we have Audi’s flagship – the R8 supercar, which comes in multiple variations itself.
