The Audi 90 nameplate first appeared on the 90 PS version of the F103 between 1966 and 1971, namely with the Audi Super 90 and 90 Variant. In 1984, slotting between the Audi 80 and 100, the 90 was conceived as an upscale 80 in response to the BMW 3er-Reihe and Mercedes-Benz W201 models. Originally the 90s were the old five-cylinder 80s with a facelift and higher levels of standard equipment. The replacement B3 model was greatly changed, with Audi’s 1980s’ aerodynamic thinking. Unlike the 80, the 90 benefited from a larger boot and a full-sized spare tyre and was considered a less compromised package. By 1991, Audi had decided to absorb the 90 back into the original 80 range for the B4 model change.
