The Audi 50 (known internally as the "Typ" 86) is a supermini produced by German automaker Audi from 1974 to 1978 and sold only in Europe.

The car was offered as a three-door hatchback with a 1093 cc petrol engine, producing either 50 or 60 PS (37 or 44 kW/49 or 58 hp) for the LS and GL models, respectively. The model was popular in Europe, both because of its generous specifications for a car of the time, and on account of its relatively low price.

The car was rebadged by Volkswagen, and sold as the Volkswagen Polo in 1975. The two models were sold alongside each other for 3 years, but the cheaper Volkswagen model outsold the Audi 50, and Audi discontinued the 50 in 1978, after a total production of 180,000 units, with the Polo range continuing through numerous generations to the present day.

In its day, its main competitors would include the Renault 5, the Fiat 127, and the Autobianchi A112.Fact|date=August 2008
