ⓘ Audi 80
The Audi 80 was a compact executive car produced by the Audi subdivision of the Volkswagen Group across four generations from 1966 to 1996. It shared its platform with the Volkswagen Passat from 1973 to 1986 and was available as a saloon, and station wagon) - the latter marketed by Audi as the Avant. The coupe and convertible models were not badged as members of the range but used a derivative of the same platforms.
In North America and Australia, the 80 was marketed as the Audi Fox for model years 1973–79, and as the Audi 4000 for model years 1980–87 in the US. The Audi 90 was an upmarket version of the Audi 80, although all North American sedans of the B4 generation were called Audi 90.
1. Naming convention
Under Audis platform numbering convention, the 80 is classified as a member of the B-series or B platform family of vehicles, with the four generations of 80 being numbered as B1, B2, B3 and B4; its replacement – the Audi A4 – continues this sequence with platform numbers B5 through to B9. Originally this numbering convention ran concurrently with that of the Volkswagen Passat, the first generation of which was essentially a badge engineered clone of the Audi 80. This link was severed in 1988 when the Passat moved to a non-related, transverse-engined, VW-specific platform for its 80-unrelated B3 and B4 versions. It was again based on the Audi A4 B5 or "8D" platform for its B5 generation, and returned to transverse once again for its B6 and up generations.
2. F103 1966–1972
The Audi F103 series, based on the DKW F102 but with an all-new range of four-stroke engines developed in conjunction with Daimler-Benz, was sold between 1965 and 1972. It comprised several models named for their horsepower ratings. From 1966 to 1969 this series included an Audi 80, and there were also Audi 60, 72, 75, and Super 90 models available over the years.
3. B1 1972–1978
This model debuted in Europe in 1972 as the Audi 80, and in 1973 in Australia and North America Canada and the USA as the Audi Fox, and was available as either a two-door or a four-door saloon sedan. It effectively took the place of several models that Audi had discontinued the F103 series, which included the first model designated as an "Audi 80", and provided the company with a viable rival to the Opel Ascona and the Ford Taunus Ford Cortina in the UK, as well as more upmarket offerings including the Alfa Romeo Alfetta and Triumph Dolomite.
The Audi 80 B1 was only the second modern-era Audi product to be developed entirely under Volkswagen ownership - Audi chief engineer Ludwig Kraus had famously been disparaging about the outgoing F103 series, referring to it as the "bastard", owing to its Auto Union/DKW bodyshell and Mercedes-Benz engine. The B1 was a clean break from the Auto Union era, being equipped with.a range of brand new 1.3- and 1.5-litre SOHC inline-four petrol engines - the first appearance of the now legendary EA827 series of engines, whose descendants are still used in VW Group vehicles to the present day. The internal combustion engines were available in various rated power outputs. For the 1.3-litre engines, identification code: ZA was rated at 55 PS 40 kW; 54 bhp, code: ZF was rated at 60 PS 44 kW; 59 bhp. The 1.5-litre codes: ZB, ZC at 75 PS 55 kW; 74 bhp for the ZB and 85 PS 63 kW; 84 bhp for the ZC.
On the home market, two- and four- door saloons were available in base trim, as L models LS with 75 PS engine or as a more luxurious GL 85 PS only. In September 1973, Audi added the sporty 80 GT two-door only featuring a carburettor 1.6-litre engine code: XX rated at 100 PS 74 kW; 99 bhp.
The Audi 80 had a MacPherson strut front suspension, and a C-section beam rear axle located by trailing arms and a Panhard rod, and using coil springs and telescopic dampers.
Audis design and development efforts paid off during the 1973 European Car of the Year competition where the 80 won ahead of the Renault 5 and the Alfa Romeo Alfetta.
A facelift in autumn 1976 brought about a revised front end in the style of the newly introduced Audi 100 C2 with square instead of round headlights, 1.6- instead of 1.5-litre engines still of 75/85 PS and a new 80 GTE model with a fuel-injected version of the 1.6-litre 110 PS 81 kW; 108 bhp) replacing the former 80 GT.
In certain markets a five-door "Avant" Audis name for an estate/wagon variant was offered - effectively a rebadged Volkswagen Passat with Audi front panels. This version, first seen in mid-1975, appeared in the United States, South Africa, and several other markets.
The Fox originally had a 1.5 litre engine rated at 55 hp 41 kW; 56 PS, attached to a four-speed manual transmission. Subsequent versions came with 1.6-litre engines rated at 83 hp 62 kW; 84 PS. By 1978, ever more stringent emissions rules meant that this had dropped to 78 hp 58 kW; 79 PS. Four-speed manuals or three-speed automatics were on offer, in all three bodystyles. Aside from the required larger bumpers, early models looked very similar to their European counterparts, while facelift versions model year 1977 received a large black grille with double, round headlights, without the wraparound turn signals used elsewhere. There was also a sporting GTi package on offer in later years. The B1 platform was dropped from the European market in 1978, although it was sold into the 1979 model year in North America.
4. B2 1978–1986
Audi presented a redesigned 80 based on the B2 platform Typ 81 in September 1978 and deliveries of the four-door sedan began a few weeks later in Europe. Deliveries of the fuel injected GLE and two door bodied cars began early in 1979. The redesigned car was first seen in North America in 1979 as a 1980 model. Audi continued to use the 80 nameplate in Europe, but badged their Typ 81 as the Audi 4000 in North America. The body of the B2 Audi 80 was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro. No Avant variant was available, as the Volkswagen Passat filled that role, as the B2 was intended to move the 80 upmarket from the mid-sized family segment to a compact executive model pitched to rival the BMW 3 Series. The B2 also acted in a de facto sense, as a replacement for the ill-fated NSU Ro 80 which ceased production the year before, since Audi dropped the NSU brand completely following that cars demise. The corresponding B2 version of the Passat appeared two years later, and although the two cars shared the same platform and running gear as before, the Passat had a much stronger visual identity distinct from its Audi 80 sister in comparison with the B1.
The 80 first became available with four-wheel drive in 1983. The model was essentially an Ur-Quattro without the turbocharger and with saloon bodywork. The four-wheel drive 80, however, weighed more than a front-wheel drive Audi 100 CD with the same 2144 cc 136 PS 100 kW; 134 hp engine, and with its worse aerodynamics it was slower than the larger, better equipped, and lower-priced 100. Top speeds are 187 and 199 km/h 116 and 124 mph respectively, with similar fuel economy advantages for the larger 100. The 80 quattro received twin headlamps, a front spoiler with integrated foglights, and a body-coloured rubber spoiler on the rear. There was also a "quattro" script on the bootlid and a twin exhaust. The luggage compartment was marginally smaller mostly in height, which meant only a temporary spare tire could be fitted. The 80 quattro was a bargain compared to the Ur-Quattro, but less so in comparison with the two-wheel drive 80 GTE or the 100 CD, although they did not offer the impressive road holding that the quattros do.
In Europe, the 80 was the standard model, while after a 1984 facelift the Audi 90 was launched as a larger-engined version of the 80; with more options, and, aside from the 70 PS 51 kW; 69 bhp, four-cylinder 1.6-litre turbodiesel TD engine which was also available for the 80, two five-cylinder in-line petrol engines - a 2.0-litre with 115 PS 85 kW; 113 bhp and a 2.2-litre with 136 PS 100 kW; 134 bhp which was later modified into a 2.3-litre. The 2.2-litre was available with a catalytic converter and power ratings of 115 PS 85 kW; 113 bhp for front-drive and 120 PS 88 kW; 118 bhp for quattro models. European models had two headlamp casings, while North American models generally had quad headlamps.
In 1983, the 80 Sport was introduced in the UK, based on the GTE. It came with quattro-style Ronal alloys, rubber rear spoiler, deep chin spoiler, striped charcoal Recaro interior, and optional body graphics including full-length "Audi Sport" stripes. In the U.S., a special commemorative-edition version, the Audi 4000CS quattro, was made for the 1985, 1986, and 1987 model years.
Mid-1984, for the 1985 model year, Audi gave the B2 a subtle facelift with tail lights resembling the ones of the Typ 44 Audi 100, and different front and rear bumpers and headlights and an updated interior. In Europe, engines with catalytic converter emissions controls were made available for the first time. The 1.6- and 1.8-litre engines were replaced by newer iterations of the same, enabling the fitment of catalytic converters.
The B2 platform proved to be both quite versatile and quite profitable; many components were shared to or borrowed from the Audi Coupe, Audi Quattro and Audi Sport Quattro, which in the process helped to cement the company into the public eye after their quattro permanent four-wheel-drive system proved useful in various forms of racing.
The saloons were offered until late 1986 in Europe and 1987 abroad, and the B2-based Audi Coupe lasted through to 1988 as an early 1989 model before being changed. The Coupe shared many components, and its basic body shape, with the original Audi Quattro.
4.1. B2 1978–1986 4000 1980–1987 & 4000 5+5
The North American Audi 4000 was first introduced for the 1980 model year, with a 1588 cc inline-four with 76 hp 57 kW. This engine came in for some criticism, being somewhat buzzy and underpowered for a car in this price segment. Audi did not offer an automatic transmission, as the engine could not quite cope. A five-speed transmission was also not available until the 1981 model year. For 1981, the 4000 received a long-stroke 1.7-litre engine and a standard five-speed manual with a three-speed automatic still available. The new engine was a fifty-state version with a three-way catalyst, and power dropped to 74 hp 55 kW. Nonetheless, more torque and the new gearbox translated into better performance and improved gas mileage.
The Audi 4000 5+5 was launched on to the American market in the 1981 model year. The 5+5 was essentially an 80 B2 two-door saloon with the 100 hp 101 PS; 75 kW 2144 cc five-cylinder engine from the 5000 and a five-speed transmission, the precursor to what would become the Audi 90. Fitted with various sporty parts such as an oil pressure gauge, sports interior, and alloy wheels, it was accompanied on the American market by the 4000S. This is a more pedestrian yet well-equipped four-door version with the same engine, originally only coupled to a three-speed automatic.
After a facelift it was sold in North America in 4000S 1.8-litre and 4000CS quattro 2.2-litre derivatives, with the CS quattro being very similar to the European Audi 90 quattro. The Audi 4000 quattro debuted in 1984 and was sold in four colors, Black, Alpine White, Tornado Red, and optional Zermatt Silver metallic. It came standard with a five-speed manual transmission, brown velour interior, and automatic windows up front and manuals in the rear. The early Audi 4000s were very similar to the Audi 80 with the addition of US mandated crash safety bumpers and quad sealed beam headlights. The mounting for the safety bumpers intruded into the luggage compartment floor, making for a very irregularly shaped and less useful space.
The S has a 1.8-litre inline-four-cylinder engine that puts out 76 kW 103 PS; 102 bhp at 5500 rpm. The CS quattro has a CIS-E fuel-injected 2.2-litre inline-five cylinder petrol engine identification code: JT. It displaces 2226 cc and was constructed from a grey cast-iron cylinder block, with an aluminium alloy cylinder head, and uses a timing belt-driven single overhead camshaft SOHC. The rated horsepower is 86 kW 117 PS; 115 bhp at 5500 rpm, and the torque is 171 N⋅m 126 lbf⋅ft at 3000 rpm. The only transmission available on the 4000CS was a five-speed close-ratio manual.
4.2. B2 1978–1986 Audi 5+5 Australia
The Audi 5+5 name was used in the Australian market for a unique four door Audi 80 fitted with a 2144 cc five cylinder engine and a five speed manual gearbox. An automatic option was also offered. The 5+5 was marketed in Australia from October 1981 through to 1983.
5. B3 1986–1992
In September 1986, Audi released a new Typ 89 Audi 80 for the 1987 model year on the European market and introduced it elsewhere within a year. It was based on a new platform which broke the relationship between the 80 and the Volkswagen Passat, the corresponding third generation of which used the transverse-engined Volkswagen B3 platform, whilst Audi stuck with the longitudinal front wheel drive layout for the B3-series 80. Production codes were Typ 89 from 1987 to 1989, and Typ 8A from 1990 onwards in line with a restructuring of many VW platform designations. It introduced a new aerodynamic look and a fully zinc coated galvanised bodyshell.
Unlike its predecessor, the B3 was marketed worldwide only as the Audi 80 or Audi 90. Initially, Audi transferred existing powertrain concepts to the new model although fuel injection was now available for some engines. A range of new petrol and diesel inline four-cylinder engines became available to European customers along with the procon-ten safety system which became standard fitment from 1991.
Procon-ten was a notable safety feature comprising a series of hidden steel cables routed behind the gearbox, attached to the steering wheel and front seatbelt inertia reels. In the event of a front impact, the engine and gearbox are forced rearwards, pulling on these cables. This action simultaneously pulls the steering wheel into the dashboard to prevent the driver colliding with it while tightening the front seatbelts. This innovation was a precursor to the airbag, which became popular on mass produced cars during the 1990s after being patented by Mercedes-Benz in 1982.
In 1987, the Audi 90 was reintroduced as an upmarket, more luxurious variant of the 80. To begin with it would again feature a choice of 10-valve inline five-cylinder petrol engines, and could be specified with or without quattro. The 90 differs visually to the 80 by a full width tail-light panel; headlights which featured additional high-beam lights and a slightly different front grille. Indicator lamps were moved from beside the headlights to the bumpers next to the fog lights, which were standard fitment on the 90. Brightwork surrounds for the windows, tops of the bumpers and side rubbing strips were also standard. Interiors were upgraded over the 80 featuring velour seat coverings and a slightly more generous level of equipment. The then range-topping 2.2E offered a boot spoiler, alloy wheels, leather steering wheel and sports front seats. Switchable ABS was standard on quattro versions.
From 1989 to 1991 the Audi 90 offered the first 20-valve engine from Audi since the turbocharged engine used in the Audi Sport Quattro. This new 2.3L engine produced 170 PS 125 kW; 168 bhp and featured in the front wheel drive 20V, 20V Sport and four-wheel drive 20V quattro derivatives. The non-quattro 20V models were 120 kg lighter.
Externally, Sport versions of the 90 were visually distinguished by the deletion of brightwork in favour of satin black window surrounds, bumper cappings and thinner side mouldings. A raised aluminium boot spoiler, lowered suspension and uprated brakes were fitted as standard, Speedline wheels were also standard fitment in the UK.
In October 1988 a Coupe version based on the 80/90 appeared, called simply the Audi Coupe typ 8B. This had completely different three-door liftback bodywork and replaced the earlier, B2-based Coupe which had been manufactured into early 1988. This version remained in production until 1996, in parallel with the succeeding B4 generation Audi 80. A convertible was planned from the beginning but did not appear until May 1991 as the Audi Cabriolet. This model remained in production until 2000 and was optically aligned with the B4 Audi 80 from its introduction.
Altogether, the Audi 80 came with the following engine range, although not all of these were available in all markets:
The Audi 90 came with the following 5-cylinder engines:
5.1. B3 1986–1992 North America
In 1989, for the 1990 model year, North America received the 90 quattro model and Coupe quattro that was powered by a detuned 164 hp 122 kW; 166 PS of the 20v 2.3-litre 5-cylinder engine. It was marketed in the "Grand Tourismo" GT style of a comfortable luxury car with sporting tendencies, as opposed to a dedicated lightweight sports car. Weighing between 3.042 lb 1.380 kg 1990 sedan model to 3.308 lb 1.500 kg 1991 Coupe model, these cars were not lightweight, especially in consideration of the 164 hp powerplant slightly less than the European version. These models can be recognised by their distinctive wheels, 14" BBS Mesh wheels or 15" Six-star Speedlines. They differed from regular 80/90 models in several ways. Notable differences include their standard leather interiors with Zebrano wood trim, additional VDO gauges mounted in the bottom of the centre console, a carbon fibre centre prop shaft, and push-button locking rear differential.
The final type 89 80s and 90s were sold as 1992 models in North America; in Europe, all type 89 sedans were discontinued at the end of the 1991 model year to give way to the B4 series; a few Audi 90 Sport Quattro with the 2.3-litre 20v engine are, however, known to have come off the assembly lines as late as early 1992.
6. B4 1991–1996
The Audi 80 B3 obtained a major facelift in the autumn of 1991, although the UK launch was not until early 1992. It was from then on known internally as the B4 or Typ 8C. Changes from the B3 included a longer wheelbase, a fully redesigned fuel tank and rear axle to enable the use of folding seats, 15" wheels with more prominent wheel arches, redesigned and painted rear and front bumpers, as well as higher-quality materials for the interior, and a larger boot. The front grille was merged with the bonnet and given a bolder look. This design had been previewed on the 1990 Audi Coupe S2 and was applied to the full lineup of the B3-based Coupes as well in July 1991. The Cabriolet Typ 8G had been introduced in May 1991 and continued to be built long after the B4 had been replaced, receiving similar updates to the Audi 80 B4 and succeeding Audi A4.
The B4 also marked the beginning of Audis move into the German luxury mid-sized vehicle segment, which until then was clearly dominated by Mercedes-Benz and BMW. On the European market, and in Germany in particular, the B4 and its variants were highly successful and popular.
In Europe, the 90 designation for five-cylinder models was dropped for this generation, and all saloons were badged as 80, regardless of which engine they had. Audi of America went the opposite direction, and sold the saloon as the 90. B4s for the American market typically offered more luxury and style even in the standard version, such as automatic transmission, cruise control, air conditioning and leather seats, all of which were usually optional at additional cost on European models.
Because the United States does not recognise the international ECE Regulations on auto safety components and constructions, but rather maintains its own Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, the front of the B4 had to be specially redesigned for vehicles sold in North America. The front and bumper had to be designed to accommodate impact energy absorbers not required outside North America. Instead of the dual-reflector headlamps, a single-reflector design was used inboard of an amber combination turn signal, parking, and side marker lamp and reflector wrapping around the corner, and fog lamps smaller than the rest-of-world items were placed the corners of the bumper air duct.
European market cars were now available with a selection of inline four-cylinder engines, as well as the familiar in-line five, and two different new V6 engines 2.6-litre and 2.8-litre; the later 2.8-litre V6 was the only engine available for vehicles sold in North America. As another first, Audi introduced a new high-torque, direct-injection, turbocharged diesel engine, the 66 kW 90 PS; 89 bhp 1.9-litre TDI Turbocharged Direct Injection. The standard 1.8-litre petrol engine of the B3 was discontinued; a two-litre, 66 kW 90 PS; 89 bhp, four-cylinder petrol engine, a variation of the previously known 85 kW 116 PS; 114 bhp 2.0 E engine, was now available for the base model.
Altogether, although some layouts were not available everywhere outside Germany, Audi offered the following engine range for the 80/90 B4:
- 2.0 E – 85 kW 116 PS; 114 bhp, in-line four-cylinder
- 2.0 E 16v – 103 kW 140 PS; 138 bhp, 16-valve, in-line four-cylinder
- 1.8 E 20v – 92 kW 125 PS; 123 bhp, in-line four-cylinder
- 2.0 – 66 kW 90 PS; 89 bhp, in-line four-cylinder base model in Germany
- 2.6 E – 110 kW 150 PS; 148 bhp, V6
- 2.3 E 10v – 98 kW 133 PS; 131 bhp, 10-valve, in-line five-cylinder
- 1.6 – 51 kW 69 PS; 68 bhp, in-line four-cylinder export only
- 1.6 E – 74 kW 101 PS; 99 bhp, in-line four-cylinder
- S2 – 169 kW 230 PS; 227 bhp, 2.2 L, 20-valve turbocharged in-line five-cylinder
- RS2 Avant – 232 kW 315 PS; 311 bhp, 2.2 L, 20-valve turbocharged in-line five-cylinder
- 2.8 E – 128 kW 174 PS; 172 bhp, V6
- 1.9 TDI – 66 kW 90 PS; 89 bhp, in-line four-cylinder direct-injection turbodiesel with intercooler
- 1.9 TD – 55 kW 75 PS; 74 bhp, in-line four-cylinder turbodiesel
Most petrol versions could be ordered with quattro permanent four-wheel-drive; at the time, however, it could only be combined with a five-speed manual transmission. Additionally, Audi built about 2500 units of the Quattro Competition for the German and European market. It was a street homologation of the B4-based Super Tourenwagen Cup STW race car saloon with four-wheel drive and a modified 140 PS 138 hp; 103 kW, 16-valve, two-litre petrol engine. The powertrain had its roots in the two-litre, four-cylinder inline engines that most European Audi 80s were equipped with at the time. On the outside, the Quattro Competition featured the same bumpers as the S2, V6 headlights, and a rear wing mounted on the bootlid. Together with the S2 and the RS2 Avant, the Quattro Competition has become an increasingly rare and highly sought-after collectors item.
Together with the saloon, Audi produced a B4-based estate, the Audi 80 Avant, and a convertible, the Audi Cabriolet, which was largely based on the B3 Coupe. This meant that Audi now had saloon, coupe, cabriolet, and estate variants of the 80 available to European customers. For the North American market, however, Audi only sold coupes during the 1990 and 1991 model years, and the station wagon was never officially available.
As of the 1994 model year, a limited edition model, known as Europa, was introduced on the European market. It could be ordered both as a saloon and an Avant. It was factory-equipped with power mirrors, alloy wheels, rear seat headrests, an airbag steering wheel, and offered a choice between power sunroof or air conditioning. It came in five different special colours. For "regular" 1994 B4 saloons and Avants, standard features as well as options available were stepped up too, including an airbag steering wheel and redesigned door liners standard, and passenger airbags and a built-in engine immobiliser optional.
The 80-series was effectively replaced by the new Audi A4 in 1996, a variant of the 1998 B5 Volkswagen Passat. By that time it was feeling very dated in comparison with more modern rivals like the BMW E36. Production ceased at a time when prestige European manufacturers were making the transition of older executive saloons to newer models based on newer platforms in the compact executive car market.
The B4 saloon was discontinued at the end of the 1994. The Avant only built for left-hand drive markets and never sold in the UK was axed in 1995, and the Coupe with no immediate replacement followed suit in 1996. The Cabriolet, however, continued in production until August 2000. The B4 platform saloon was replaced by the Audi A4 for the 1995 model year 1996 in North America, followed by a new A4 Avant later in 1996 - sold in right-hand drive for the UK market for the first time. A mid-sized convertible was not available again until 2002, when the A4 Cabriolet was introduced. Since 2007, Audi has produced Audi A5 - which is similar in concept to the old 80-based Coupe.
6.1. B4 1991–1996 Audi S2
Audi developed a sports version of the Coupe in 1990, called the Audi Coupe S2. This replaced the famous Audi Quattro and was capable of 150 mph. In 1993, the S2 received some cosmetic updates, including new AVUS-style alloy wheels, ellipsoid beam projector headlamps and clear front indicator lenses. This coincided with the introduction of the five-door S2 Avant, along with a limited run of four-door S2 sedan models, of which 306 were produced. The S2 saloon and Avant feature a lot of similarities in the rear axle support system to the later B5 A4 quattro. The B4 platform S2 Avant was also used between 1993 and 1995 as the basis for Audis RS2 Avant super-sports estate, which was modified for Audi with assistance from Porsche.
6.2. B4 1991–1996 Audi RS2 Avant
The Audi RS2 Avant is fitted with a similar 2.2-litre turbocharged engine to the S2, but producing 232 kW 315 PS; 311 hp. It can accelerate from 0–100 km/h 0–62 mph in 4.8 seconds and has a top speed of 262 km/h 163 mph.
The Audi RS2 was generally only available as an Avant, although four 4-door saloon models were officially produced by the factory, including one for the chief of the RS2 development programme. The RS2 was at least partially assembled at Porsches Rossle-Bau plant in Zuffenhausen. Prior to manufacturing the RS2, the Porsche Zuffenhausen assembly line was busy producing the high-performance W124 bodystyle Mercedes-Benz 500E. The RS2/Porsche link is further exemplified by the RS2s dual circuit Porsche braking system wearing Brembo calipers with a Porsche name, 7.0Jx17" alloy wheels which were identical in design to the Porsche 911 Turbo wheels of that era, and side view mirrors are also borrowed from the Porsche 911 Turbo. Additionally, the word "PORSCHE" is inscribed in the RS2 factory emblems affixed to the tailgate and front grille, and on the engines inlet manifold. Porsche modified the Avant S2 body optics, added more power, better brakes, bigger anti-roll bars to front and rear, fine tuned the interior – and a super-sports estate was born. Porsches involvement in the project was on the strict understanding that a coupe model would not be produced, as this was felt to be too close to Porsches own products.
