Why only use two wheels when a car has four?
quattro permanent four-wheel drive.
Audi is a pioneer of four-wheel drive in high-quality cars. Cutting-edge quattro technology offers dynamism and safety while delivering a unique and exclusive level of driving pleasure. An Audi with quattro drive moves ahead safely and smoothly, even in conditions where two-wheel-drive vehicles lose traction – for instance on slippery or unpaved roads.
quattro® is a permanent four-wheel drive system
If the wheels of one axle lose grip and threaten to spin, the drive torque is redirected to the other axle – automatically and continuously distributed through the centre differential. The basic distribution is 40:60 – with 40% of the power going to the front axle and 60% to the rear. The advantage: more grip when accelerating and greater safety thanks to the exceptional roadholding. So much for the technology. But what makes quattro unique is really the driving feel. “It’s like you’re stuck to the road,” some customers say. We put it this way: quattro gives you a better feel for the road and thus more safety.
