In the UK, in late 1984 Audi decided to differentiate between 4cylinder and 
5cylinder versions of the Audi 80.  The 4cylinder models retained the name 
Audi 80 and the 5cylinder models were given the name Audi 90.

I think that in the US, both 4 and 5 cylinder models at that time were 
called Audi 80, and the name Audi 90 didn't appear until the next body shape 
in 86?
