The Type 89 Audi 80 (1986-91) was joined by the in line five cylinder Audi 90 in 1986 as more luxurious variant of the 80. They were based on a new platform which broke away from Volkswagen B3 platforms of the Passat. It introduced a new aerodynamic look in a fully galvanised bodyshell. The zinc coated body encouraged Audi to offer a 12 year anti-perforation guarantee. The platform was re-designated Type 8A in 1990.
The Audi 90 differs from the 80 by its full width tail light panel, head lights which feature additional high beam lights, and a different grille. The side indicators are repositioned from being alongside the head light to a position in the bumpers alongside the fog lights. The 20 valve engine is the first offered by Audi since the Audi Quattro Sport.
The smaller 2.0ltr 115bhp ws joined by a larger 2.2ltr 136bhp in mid 1989 with the extr capacity making up for the power loss caused by the standard catalytic converter. At the same time Sport version of the two and four wheel drive 90s were added, the 20 valve version of the 2,3 ltr engine producing 170bhp with lowered suspension and fatter tyres to handle the extra performance
