Audi is one of the first automobile manufacturers to incorporate space frame technology into their vehicles. The 1994 Audi A8 was the first to use this feature, which was state because it saved weight while enhancing torsion rigidity when compared to the standard steel frames that were used by most vehicles. Audi engineers also experimented with their Type 44 chassis which utilized aluminum and was used for testing purposes.
The downside to aluminum frames however is that they are costly to repair as they need body shops that specialize in them. Weight reduction in Audi vehicles is also accomplished via Quattro 4 wheel drive, which today has become standard in many markets. Regardless, Audi is still considered the lightest vehicle in its class.

There are multiple potential causes for this, but one of the most frequent is a faulty blower motor.
