Audi A4 TDi fq

Luxury sports sedans are made all over the world, but the undisputed kingpins of the class are the Germans. The BMW 3 Series has stood as the champion of the segment for decades, but not anymore. According to German government records of new vehicle registration, the Audi A4 was the best-selling premium car of 2008, beating out the 3-Series, along with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

By the numbers, 98,714 A4’s were sold in Germany over the course of last year, making it the second most popular new car in Germany behind the Volkswagen Golf. But the Germans love Audi more than just the A4, which was introduced last year, the A6 and TT also topped their segments, contributing to Audi’s strongest growth in the German market and across Western Europe. The innovators in all-wheel traction and aluminum construction saw their entire market share rise last year by 0.8% to a total of 8.1% of the German new car market.
