A4 B5 Information

B5 (Typ 8D, 1994–2001)
The first-generation Audi A4 (known internally as the Typ 8D) was debuted by Audi in 1994,[2] with production starting November 1994. It was built on the Volkswagen Group B5 (PL45) platform, which it shared with the fourth generation Volkswagen Passat (B5, Typ 3B). It had a front-mounted longitudinal engine and front-wheel drive. Many variations of the A4 were also available with Audi's quattro four-wheel drive system. The A4 was initially introduced as a four-door saloon/sedan; the Avant (estate/wagon) arrived a year later.
