quattro all-wheel drive
Audi quattro all-wheel drive delivers superb handling and traction, while enhancing stability on wet or low grip surfaces. This system includes an electronically controlled multi-plate clutch on the rear axle and wheel-selective torque control. It continuously monitors the driving state and distributes the drive torque between the front and rear axle. The wheel-selective torque control, which is integrated in the Electronic Stability Control (ESC), gently brakes the near-side wheels during sporty cornering, increasing the drive torque on the far-side wheels.
The 7-speed dual-clutch transmission with electrohydraulic actuation facilitates faster gear changes whilst also improving fuel efficiency. A sport program is also available which can be operated automatically with the selector lever.
