Editors note:This article was originally published on June 3rd with early preliminary infomation supplied to Audi Dealers. It was updated on June 24 with offical information released from Audi of America. It is possible that specifications and options could change without notice. AudiWorld believes that this information is accurate at the time of publication.

The information below mainly shows the available option packages, although some standard equipment items have been listed also. This is not a complete listing of standard equipment.

Pricing for these models most likely will be announced sometime late in the summer or early fall of 1999. Until AoA announces the prices and specifications for the 2000 models AudiWorld, and most likely your dealer, will not have any further information.

Please remember that AoA could change these specifications without notice.
