One of the more refined luxury sport vehicle companies on the market is Audi. Though not exalted as one of the leaders in high class vehicles, Audi has quietly made a name for itself in the luxury market by combining top quality engineering and superior handling with beautiful lines and styling. If Audi isn’t a company that you have a lot of knowledge about or experience with, an Audi rental is a phenomenal way to acquaint you with this gem of German engineering.
The Audi brand was established over 100 years ago in Germany, with the first Audi vehicle being produced in 1910. Since the beginning, Audi has been focused on engineering advancement in vehicles. They quickly rose to become an early leader in luxury cars because of this focus. In 1932, Audi merged with three other brands which created the Auto Union. This merging of four companies is represented by four overlapping circles, which is now the icon Audi brand symbol. With the lead up to World War II, there was less focus on luxury vehicles and eventually the production of Audi stopped for over two decades. In 1965, the Audi name was brought back to manufacturing and by 1972; Audi was once again becoming a force to be reckoned with.
The Audi image in the 1970s was a conservative image, but that all began to change in 1980 when Audi introduced four wheel drives to the automobile market and began using it in its rally race cars. In the 1980s, Audi’s image appealed more to the older generation, so in the 1990s Audi began to redevelop and redesign their cars to attract a younger, more vital demographic. With the introduction of new technologies, sportier body styles, and more powerful engines, Audi had once again established itself as a luxury company for the new millennium. Now that you know more about the Audi brand, are you ready to start looking into car rental companies to try one out for yourself?
