Audi 100 Overview

The Audi 100 is mid-sized car produced by the German manufacturer Audi, which is part of the larger Volkswagen Group. This car was sold over three generation, from 1968-94. Audis are known for being well built cars, and this version was no exception to this. This car is a comfortable ride with a spacious interior and performs well. The Audi parts can be quite expensive, making these vehicles expensive to maintain. The Audi 100 was eventually replaced with the Audi A6 in 1994.

Audi 100 History

The C1 first generation Audi 100 (1968-76) was the first Audi produced since Volkswagen had bought them over and totally rebranded Audi as a car. This car was one of many versions built on the C1 platform. This car well exceeded the expectations of Volkswagen and supply could not meet demand, meaning they had to produce this car from one of the other VW production plants. By 1971 the Audi 100 was the most successful Audi model ever. The C2 platform (1976-82) restyled the Audi 100 and this saw the end of the Coupe version with a new hatchback Avant version becoming available instead. The most popular version still remained to be the Sedan version but sales were not as good as the previous model. The C3 platform (1982-91) had the European car of the year award in 1983 and this really gave the Audi 100 a new look, and boost in sales. It was a much more aerodynamic car and much rounder than previous models, which meant it was more economical, making this a major selling point for this car. This car was to pioneer a change in design which other manufacturers were soon to follow in. The C4 platform (1991-94) was basically an updated version of the previous C3. The 4x4 Quattro became available in this range and some new larger engines as well. This platform was continued into the Audi A6 range in 1995.

Fuel Economy

As can be seen from the above available engines, there was a vast amount of different engine sizes produced throughout the generations. The later models when the body designed was rounded and made more aerodynamic, meant better fuel economy than its predecessors. The age, fuel type and engine size must be taken into consideration when determining the fuel economy. The most economical of the range would be the diesel versions, particularly 2.0 D and TD.


There were 3 and 4 speed automatic gearboxes available and 5 and 6 speed manual gearboxes throughout the range. Have a look at the Audi gearbox section of our website.
