An impressive story of brand revival, as Mini’s move to German ownership brought a whole new life and perspective to this very vintage, very British Brand. Small is beautiful, sure but its also fun.

TABLE OF CONTENTS:

Intro
The goal of Audi’s founder was to make an automobile that “runs well.” Let’s imagine the loud roar of the engine as we go back to those days.

Line Up
Audis are classified into three groups according to shape and function, and these differences are reflected in the model names. Here are a few of Audi’s more than 40 models that are noticeable in sales, price, and other qualities.

Inner Space
Here are the design elements and core technologies behind Audi’s competitiveness.

VS
Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz are all premium German automobiles, but they all have very different characters. In this section, we compare their differing designs, sensibilities, and performance.

German Cars
We met with four people who drive cars from different German brands. Even though they work for the same design company in Munich, they all had their own reasons for choosing their car.

My Audi
Audi users don’t play favorites, and all segments of the company’s lineup enjoy nearly equal popularity with consumers. We met the owners of four different Audis and asked them what they thought about their current model and how it differed from their previous car.

Features
We asked some Audi drivers about the details they most appreciate in their cars.

New Premium
Audi’s unique sensibility has birthed a new premium value sensibility that sets Audi apart from other premium car brands. The meaning of this “new premium” becomes evident when we look into the lifestyles of Audi drivers.

B’s Cut
If we examine Audi’s history, we can see that the automaker’s image of understated luxury is the result of a focus on technology.

Brand Story
Audi was founded in 1932 as a union of several small automobile companies. Since that time, Audi has pursued constant innovation through technology acquired in numerous M&As. We take a look at how a quality-focused mass-market automaker evolved into an industry-leading premium brand.

Outro
Views from inside an Audi. Let’s listen to the sound of its quiet movements.

Description

Mini tells the story of the iconic British Car.

In 1959, the release of the Mini came as a welcome answer to the British fuel shortage and economic hardship that ensued shortly after the Suez Crisis. Created by engineer Alec Issigonis, who aimed to produce a compact car with greater fuel efficiency, Mini is reputed for its recognizable design that made it a world-class cultural icon in the UK among target groups crossing gender, age, and socioeconomic class lines. Since its merger with BMW in 1994, Mini has maintained its position in the premium compact car market, all while strengthening its fervent fanbase with innovations that carry on the Mini tradition, discovering even more paths that will lead to a bright, urban life.

MINI Quotes:

People just love the Mini. If you’re old, you might drive it yourself, and if you’re middle-aged, you might sit in it. Even children who have never been in a Mini can easily connect with it because it’s small and humble. The design of the Mini delights and disarms.
Robert Welch, CEO & Managing director of Small Car Big City
The fact that Mini owners don’t equate status with the size of their vehicle hasn’t changed one bit, either. They put emphasis on emotion. Whether it’s the classic Mini, Hatch, Clubman, or Countryman, they all vary slightly in appearance, but the designs aim to forge personal relationships between the driver and the car.
Oliver Heilmer, Head of Design at Mini
