What is Audi quattro?
Since its inception over 35 years ago, quattro has revolutionized the automotive industry. It was the first permanent all-wheel drive system designed for passenger vehicles.
How does it work?
Audi quattro is designed to provide maximum traction and stability on the road, especially in adverse weather conditions. The quattro system uses a central differential to distribute torque between the front and rear wheels, providing optimal levels of power to each wheel as needed to give you superior handling and grip on the road.
Audi quattro technology and performance
The technology behind the Audi quattro system is truly impressive. It uses sensors to monitor road conditions and adjust the torque distribution in real time. This means that the car can respond quickly to changing conditions, providing maximum traction and stability on the road.
In terms of overall performance, the Audi quattro delivers. The system provides a confident and stable drive, even in difficult conditions. The car feels secure and controlled, even on slippery roads, and the added traction of the quattro system can make a real difference when it comes to handling and braking.
The Audi quattro lineup
Audi understands that there is not a one size fits all approach to all-wheel drive systems. In fact, Audi has tailored each quattro system to the specific vehicle to maximize its performance.
Audi quattro has you covered from luxury sedans to compact and full-size SUVs. There’s something for everyone, whether you’re looking for a car for your daily commute or a weekend adventure. Standard on most Audi models including the entry-level A3 and A4 sedans, the Q3 SUV crossover, full-size Q5 and Q7 SUVs, convertibles like the A5 Cabriolet, and even the exotic RS and TT sports models. The Audi quattro all-wheel-drive system has you covered.
With the growing popularity of electric vehicles, Audi is bringing quattro technology to their electric lineup by using an electric motor on each of the axles instead of a traditional gearbox.
The system automatically uses sensors throughout the vehicle that monitor wheel slip, throttle position, and torque to send the right amount of power to each axle. Thus, delivering a great driving experience in all types of weather conditions.
