About Audi A4
The A4 has been produced by Audi since 1994, and is based on the B platform developed by Volkswagen. Available as a saloon or estate car, the A4 is one of Audi's most popular models and more than 5 million of them have been sold since it went on sale in 1995. Like most cars, the A4 has received quite a few face lifts over the years, and most variants can still be found to purchase today - some of which are only available as used cars, and may be second or even third hand. The Avant has larger boot space, and is suited to a growing family, the Quattro is a luxury model, has a slightly sportier body and can come in a convertible variant. Adopters of the A4 tend to love the vehicle for its key luxury aspects, combined with the practicality that Audi deliver with most of their vehicles.
The four rings of Audi's logo represents the merging of four different German companies to become the Audi we know today. In 1932, four independent car manufacturers became one, namely Audi, Wanderer, DKW, and Horch. The modern day Audi AG is built on the foundations and principles of these four once individual businesses. August Horch designed the first car for Audi before that, in 1911 - you can still see an Audi 1022 hp Type A Phaeton at the National Technical Museum in Prague. Audi has been a subsidiary of the Volkswagen group since 1966, when Audi's predecessor, Auto Union, was bought from Daimler-Benz.
