B5 Audi A4 — Audi’s First 3 Series-Fighter
If you’re a young Audi a4 b5 multimedia enthusiast, or a car enthusiast of any kind for that matter, and you want to get into a small, fun sport sedan for little money, the B5 Audi A4 is tough to beat. At the moment, there are loads of them on classifieds throughout the country, with every variant available, and they’re all shockingly cheap. So we though we’d put together a little bit of a buyer’s guide for anyone looking to.
To do so, we’re going to talk a little bit about the history of the B5 Audi A4, how it began and what it was supposed to be. Then we’ll talk about which models were available; body styles, engines, transmissions and drivetrains. Lastly, we’ll tell you what to look for and what to avoid. So let’s dig in.
Back in the ’80s and early ’90s, BMW was essentially dominating the small, premium sports sedan segment. The 3 Series was nigh untouchable and Audi really couldn’t keep up. Sure, the Audi 80 was a good car but it was simply not as good as any generation of 3 Series it competed with. Which is why, in the early ’90s, Audi realized it needed to do better and replaced it with something more competitive. Thus, the B5 Audi A4 was born.
The B5-gen A4 was Audi’s first ever A4 and it’s the car that allowed the four-ringed brand to take on the blue and white Roundel at its own game. It was a massive step up from the Audi 80 that preceded it in virtually every way. It was more premium, better looking, it handled better and was overall just more befitting of the segment Audi wanted to compete in.
It wasn’t perfect, the B5 A4, and it still couldn’t take down the E36-generation 3 Series in terms of sales, but it was certainly a close competitor and put Audi on the map in that segment. Since the B5, the A4 has been Audi’s most popular car and it’s consistently been among the brand’s best-selling vehicles, if not it’s very best-selling vehicle.
Because we’re based in the US market, we’re Audi a4 b5 multimedia mainly going to discuss the models that were available here. They’re essentially the same, just without a few of the diesel and smaller gasoline engines that were available in European markets.
In America, the B5 Audi A4 was sold in either sedan or Avant (wagon) form. The fact that Audi sold an A4 Avant in the ‘States was interesting because BMW didn’t sell the E36 3 Series wagon here. However, the 3 Series offered a coupe and the A4 did not.
Powering the B5 A4 was a choice of two different engines in Americas: a 1.8 liter turbocharged four-cylinder or a 2.8 liter naturally-aspirated V6. The little four-pot made about 170 hp and 173 lb-ft of torque, hardly the big turbocharged numbers we see today. While the V6 made about 190 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. It’s funny to see the naturally-aspirated engine having more torque than horsepower and the turbocharged engine having about the same for both. In today’s world, it’s typically the opposite.
Both Audi a4 b5 multimedia engines were available with either a five-speed manual gearbox or a five-speed “Tiptronic” automatic. The latter had a manual-shift ability, with a separate shift gate that allowed the driver to just click the shift lever forward or backward, for upshifts and downshifts, respectively. It was among the first of its kind but we’ve come to expect that sort of feature in every automatic-equipped car today. Front-wheel drive was standard but Quattro all-wheel drive was optional.
