Audi A4 & S4 (B5)

The Audi A4, introduced as the first generation Typ 8D, marked a significant step in Audi's midsize luxury car offering, debuting in October 1994 with its sales starting in Europe in January 1995. Built on the Volkswagen Group B5 platform, shared with the fourth generation Volkswagen Passat, the A4 showcased Audi's engineering prowess with a front-mounted longitudinal engine and options for both front-wheel and quattro four-wheel drive systems. Initially launched as a four-door saloon, the model expanded to include the Avant (estate/wagon) by February 1996, catering to a broader audience seeking Audi's blend of luxury and performance.

On the technical front, the A4 distinguished itself with a diverse range of engines, catering to varying market demands with petrol engines ranging from 1.6 to 2.8 litres and a 1.9-litre diesel engine equipped with Volkswagen's VE technology. Notably, the A4 introduced the innovative 1.8-litre 20v engine with five valves per cylinder, a technology derived from Audi Sport's Supertouring race car. This engine, particularly in its turbocharged 1.8T guise, delivered a compelling mix of power and efficiency. Audi's commitment to innovation was further evidenced by the introduction of the tiptronic automatic transmission, offering drivers the flexibility of manual gear selection within an automatic transmission framework. This era of the A4 not only solidified Audi's reputation in the luxury car segment but also set new standards for vehicle performance and comfort.
