Not sure exactly what accounts for the 10hp difference, but if the Canadian
version did not have a catalytic convertor, then that's likely the reason
why.  Audi did sell 5-cylinder front-drive versions of the 4000 in the U.S.
(model year 1980/81, but discontinued them after that).  The engine
configuration in the 5-cylinder 4000s are identical to that in the Coupe.
