In 1995, the Audi 80 became the Audi A4 - and proceeded to help put the brand on the executive-car map. The A4 has improved over the generations to become a formidable rival for the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and for years now has led the medium-luxury-car segment for interior presentation. It is available in sedan and wagon forms, with coupe and convertible versions since 2007 adopting the A5 badge.There are also sportier S4 and RS4 variants, as well as a high-riding Allroad model.
