About This Quiz

Automakers have been battling it out for over a hundred years, and it doesn't seem like that fight will stop anytime soon. What with new technological advancements and cutting-edge ideas, things are only getting more competitive in the automotive world. Today, this fight is between Audi and Chrysler. Do you know their brands well enough to distinguish the two? 

Audi is German-made. Their headquarters are located in Bavaria, but the brand itself has production in about nine facilities all over the world. The name Audi was inspired by its founder's name, August Horch (Horch means to listen in German). The meaning was then translated into Latin and the name "Audi" was born. Today, the brand is synonymous with luxury. 

Chrysler, on the other hand, was made in the USA. It is a subsidiary of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, which is headquartered in London; Chrysler itself has its offices in Detroit. It is known for being a member of America's "Big Three" and is most known for Jeep, Dodge and Ram trucks. 

Based on the clues in the histories of each automotive brand we've given you, plus what you already know (because you're an avid car lover), do you think you can tell us which vehicle is an Audi and which is a Chrysler? Take this quiz to find out!
