The Innovation Behind the Grip and Performance of Audi Quattro All-Wheel Drive

Even thirty-seven years after it was introduced, Audi’s quattro all-wheel drive system is still considered innovative. Now offered in three flavors, it all works under the same principle of preventing traction loss before it happens by routing engine power to the wheels with more grip. In fact, it works so well, you won’t even notice it’s happening.

Although all quattro platforms work on the same principle, each system works differently, as they’re developed for the model they’re installed in. For example, A3 and TT models have a Haldex system that drives the front wheels normally, but can route torque aft as needed. A similar principle is used on the quattro with ultra system found on the A4 Allroad and Q5—but in the interest of saving gas. All other systems operate with a self-locking center differential that will send power to whichever axle needs it, and even between wheels. Whichever system you pick, wet weather grip and performance are magnified!

But quattro isn’t the only innovation you’ll find on our new Audi lineup. The Virtual Cockpit instrumentation display, MMI, and driver assistance features all get high marks from shoppers and reviewers. Contact our San Jose, CA location to learn more.
