Published on one of the german car magazines on the internet. (All pictures are courtesy of Autobild.de)

Here are seven pictures.

#1


#2


#3


#4


#5


#6


#7


#8


Cars : Audi A4 / BMW E46 / Ford Focus / Mercedes C-Class / Mitsubishi Carisma / Renault Laguna / Skoda Octavia / VW Passat

OK, which picture is which car ?

I know, not all the models are available in the USA, but I thought it could be fun, though.

PS : I don't know the answers either :D

Aye Alex, isn't this like "upskirting"? :confused: You pervert! :lmao:

Btw, #3 is BMW E46. Haven't peek at the rest of the cars before. When you do, let us know. :D

Does the A4 have double exhaust tips ? :confused: I thought it had one single and the 3.0 liter version had two on both sides.

Audi's website is showing a single tip on both sides... if thats the case which one is it? :confused:

Thought it had two on one side... still standing by my guess though! :D

#1 is the Merc?

I based my guess on that being the only other car having a rear differential. AFAIK the Merc is the only other car on this list that's RWD.

#3 is the E46, we know that for sure. If I really had to guess.

#2 and #6 share the same underbody, so that has to be the Audi A4 and the VW Passat. My guess is #6 is the Audi from the squarish front bumper, so #2 is the VW.

I'm not too familiar with the other brands, but #7's proportion would suggest this is probably the smallest vehicle of the bunch (the wheels look HUMONGUS), so this might be the focus, although I don't know if it's smaller than the other two models. The colorscheme would also suggest the Focus.

Can't tell the other two.

OK, 1 and 3 are the only RWD cars, and we know 3 is E46 so 1 is C-class.

4, 5 and 7 are pretty clearly transverse drivetrains which eliminates the A4.

2 and 6 appear to be on very similar platforms, so I would guess they're the Passat and A4, with #2 being a shorter car with AWD, so it would likely be the A4.

Hey, why are there 8 cars and 7 pics? :confused:

Bleh. That doesn't help since #8 is most likely the Carisma, as it has a Japanese-style frontside exhaust.

OK, OK, I got it.

7 is the Skoda, as the muffler looks the same as its other VAG stablemates.

4 is the Laguna, as it has a torsion beam rear suspension.

That leaves 5 as the Focus with its multilink rear.

Yeah, that's a suspension NIGHTMARE...The rears would be pushing IN and the fronts are pusing OUT. Great for European roads indeed.
