Welcome to Generation Gap where we ask you about your favorite generation of a certain multi-generational car nameplate. Then, explain why your choice is right to the rest of us uneducated folks.
One European automaker which has yet to be featured here on Generation Gap is Audi, so today we take a look at the company’s littlest cars from the ‘70s to the ‘90s: the venerable 80 series! From a little rebadged Passat to a bona fide sports saloon boasting the latest in Quattro technology, which little Audi 80 is your favorite? (Don’t fret about the latest A4s; those will show up next week!)
First Generation [1972 - 1978] B1 and facelift
