It’s 1994 when Audi decides to renew its proposal for the D segment by replacing the 80 B4 with a completely new model, the A4 B5. The dimensions of this generation are 4,44 x 1,73 meters. This allows the A4 not to be overly large, but at the same time easily accommodates five passengers and has a large trunk (440 liters extendable up to 720 by reclining the rear seat). The structure of the A4 B5 will later be adopted in the Volkswagen Passat and the Skoda Superb. On the outside, the rounded lines give a touch of youth and give greater harmony to the design, while inside the simplicity dominates, and the analog controls are very pleasant to the touch, as they give a feeling of quality. The mechanical layout of the A5 B5 is similar to that of the 80, although the suspension layout varies. In the first year of sale, the engines are petrol only; in 1995, the production of Diesel variants also began. These engines are matchable with a five-speed manual gearbox or a four-speed automatic for the four-cylinder versions and five-speed for the V6 versions, while the traction can be integral or rear. Produced in the Sedan and, since 1996, the Avant versions, the A4 B5 enjoyed moderate commercial success, and remained on sale until 2001, when its second-generation arrived.
