1993 Audi 90 Overview

Skipping a year in 1992 as it went through a transition with its 80 and 90 series, Audi repackaged these four-dour sedans as simply the Audi 90, starting in 1993. Built on the new B4 platform, the 1993 Audi 90 ditched the old 2.3-liter engine for the 2.8-liter, 172-hp V6 engine from the Audi 100. Three trims were available, the base S sedan and CS sedan (both front-wheel drive), and the all-wheel drive CS quattro sedan. The quattro was available only with 5-speed manual transmission. You could get an optional 4-speed auto tran on the 90S and CS.

The 1993 redesign did not significantly affect the look of the Audi 90, though it did gain a few inches in length and offered fold-down rear seats for the first time. ABS and driver's side airbags were standard. Along with the AWD feature, the CS quattro delivered a more sporty package that included a sports suspension, more body-supportive seats in the front, a power sunroof, and a rear spoiler. A ski bag concealed in the fold-down armrest allowed you to carry wet skis while keeping the interior dry. Audi is known for packing even its base models with lots of extras, and the 1993 90S and CS give you such standard features as fog lights, power windows and locks, power driver's seat, cruise control, and heated mirrors.

It's hard to find anything but good comments about the 1993 Audi 90. From a solid feel behind the wheel, tight turning radius and maneuverability, nice engine power when you get to top speeds, and the way the quattro tackles rain, snow, and ice, drivers love their Audi. The combination of sporty performance with luxurious comfort of the quattro makes commuting or road trips easy and fun. The heated seats are a big hit. Some complaints other than the high cost of parts and difficulty finding a knowledgeable mechanic include a so-so audio system and problems with the hydraulics.
