Say goodbye to white-knuckle driving and hello to confidence-inspired handling. Road-gripping Audi quattro® all-wheel drive is engineered to help every model we make take on inclement weather and dry, low-traction situations alike.
The engineering behind Audi quattro®quattro®Audi quattro® permanent all-wheel drive, has had over a 30-year-long tradition.quattro® is based around an asymmetric torqueTorqueTorque is what causes rotational speed to change. Just as greater net forces cause greater linear accelerations, greater torques cause greater rotational or angular accelerations.Torque split that shifts power when and where it’s needed. Under normal driving conditions, Audi quattro® all-wheel drive features a rear-biased power delivery, with a 40:60 power delivery. The instant road conditions change, power can be delivered at ratio biases from 70:30 to 15:85 front to rear depending on which system your Audi features. The result is an unparalleled connection to the road.
Taking quattro to the next level are available torque vectoring and Sport differentialDifferentialWhen a vehicle turns a corner, the inside wheels cover a shorter distance than those on the outside. Differential .. Using the advanced braking and traction control features, torque vectoring enhances handling by transferring torque to the outside cornering wheels while independently braking the inside cornering wheels. The available Sport differential on select models adds another degree of handling capability by mechanically sending power to the outside rear wheel, helping drivers accelerate through each corner.
Every time you drive your new Audi you’ll be traveling in the path of legends. When Audi introduced quattro® at the World Rally Championship in 1981, the result was an astounding 24 wins over the next 4 years. Audi quattro® continued to dominate the race circuits until it was deemed an unfair advantage and banned altogether. Audi overcame the blacklisting and has triumphed 11 out of the last 13 races at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The best way to experience Audi quattro® is behind the wheel.
