Does Volkswagen Own Audi?

Yes. Audi is a member of the larger Volkswagen Group headquartered in Bavaria, Germany. The Volkswagen Group owns a wide array of additional automotive brands, including Bugatti, Porsche, Bentley, Lamborghini, and more!


Founded in 1910, and folded into the Volkswagen Group in the 1960’s, the Audi brand now specializes in luxury models, starting with the 2018 A3 Sedan at $31,950 MSRP, and topping out with the sleek and sporty 2018 Audi R8 Spyder at $177,100 MSRP, with sedans, coupes, convertibles, crossovers, SUVs, and wagons in between.


Founded in 1937, Volkswagen (German for “people’s car”) offers a wide variety of vehicles at an accessible price point, starting with the compact 2019 Volkswagen Jetta at $18,545 MSRP and moving up from there! While both Audi and Volkswagen deliver a great value, Volkswagen is often the more affordable choice for Fairfax drivers thanks to its range of options including Volkswagen SUVs like the Tiguan.
