Audi Aftermarket Grilles

Once a brand on the brink, Audi has enjoyed a resurgence in recent years thanks to a wide range of products that rival the best not only from strong Japanese competitors such as Lexus and Infiniti, but also German heavyweights like BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Found within the lineup are Audi Grilles on cars like the Audi A4, available in cabriolet (convertible), Avant (wagon), and sedan variants offered in everything from base Audi A4 2.0T to Audi S4 trims. Slotted in below the A4 is the smaller Audi A3 Sportback, available with the Audi quattro all-wheel-drive system. That technology is on every Audi model, including the brand's big sedans, the Audi A6 and Audi A8. For horsepower junkies, a V10 can be packed under the sedans' hoods, transforming these already impressive machines into the tire-shredding Audi S6 and Audi S8. Rounding out the family-friendly offerings are the Audi Q5 and larger Audi Q7 crossovers.

Audi dates back to the early 1900s when founder August Horch started the company. Roughly twenty years later, Audi joined forces with DKW, Horch, and Wanderer (each brand representing a ring in the four-ring Audi badge) to create Auto Union AG. Over the subsequent years, Auto Union AG saw success with racecars designed by Ferdinand Porsche, but WWII brought about the ultimate demise of the company. Auto Union resurfaced in 1949, was purchased by Volkswagen 15 years later, and was named Audi in 1965.

By the late 1990s, after introductions of the must-have products ranging from the Audi TT to the Audi A6 and Audi S4, sales were brisk and demand was increasing. The relatively small Audi A3 Sportback appealed to shoppers seeking Audi style and luxury in a smaller and slightly more affordable package, whereas the RS 4, Audi S4, and amazing Audi R8 super car cemented the four-ring badge into the minds of enthusiasts everywhere. The Audi Q5 and Audi Q7 provided alternatives to SUVs and crossovers including the Infiniti EX35 and BMW X5.

Of course, not every car shopper wants their fun to come with four doors. To satisfy these folks, the two-passenger Audi TT, Audi TTS, and Audi R8 were developed. Those seeking two-door joy boasting four-passenger accommodations will want to investigate the Audi A5 and Audi S5. Future plans lean more toward engine technology and exquisite styling than greater dimensions. Look for the increased application of TDI diesel technology, more powerful sport models, and Audi's take on small crossovers and four-door coupes, such as the Audi Sportback concept car.
