The countries Germany, Austria and Switzerland have been considered. Each construction year was analyzed separately. The result shows that older vehicles on average have covered less kilometres up to the present day, as younger.

The latter is perhaps that it has denied Audi here. the A6 with descending roofline is a Oh to give popular Coupe form.
