AUDI, CENTENARY MANUFACTURER OF THE 4-RING BRAND
Big, small, family, backpacker ... Whatever your need or your desire, you will find the vehicle you need among the models of the general manufacturer Audi. Indeed, all versions are available: city car, sedan, SUV, coupe, convertible or GT. Buying an Audi is buying a vehicle from a master car maker. The century-old German manufacturer uses all its know-how to design vehicles that combine design and quality.
Moreover, throughout its history, Audi has forged a reputation as a sporty and innovative manufacturer. It is therefore not surprising to find these values in the ranges of vehicles offered by the brand. The sport range thus brings together the very best in terms of sporting performance.

Quattro vehicles are therefore equipped with all-wheel drive, which automatically distributes engine power between the front and rear axles according to the vehicle’s traction requirements. Finally, the latest addition to the brand, the e-tron range offers a hybrid vehicle that combines an electric motor with a heat engine.

It was not until 1932, after the association of Audi and the 3 manufacturers DKW, Wanderer AG and Horch, that the brand with the 4 rings, called Auto Union, was born. The company prospered until World War II, then came to a halt. The group will then live a complicated period, alternating successes and failures ...
