Intelligent Traction on the Road

Audi quattro® is an AWD system. Like other such systems, it can send power to all four wheels to enhance your traction on even the slipperiest roads. When those Vermont winters bring ice and snow, you'll want that extra grip as you drive.

However, this system goes a step further: It knows to deliver power to the wheels with the most traction already. By doing so, it maximizes your grip without wasting any power. Whether the roads are flooded or covered in snow, you'll have the capability to make your way through.

35 years ago, Audi quattro® became the first permanent AWD system for passenger cars. The system has been refined and enhanced ever since-a continuing example of Audi innovation!

A Custom Audi AWD Experience

Another way Audi quattro® all-wheel drive stands out? Audi tailors every AWD system to the vehicle it's found on. SUVs, sedans, and high-performance vehicles each have unique Audi quattro® systems designed for their intended purposes.

So, whether you want speed and thrills in your Audi S4 or smooth driving in your Audi Q7, that's exactly what you'll get. Let's examine the components of our Audi AWD systems:

  • Variable torque split-A variable torque split between front and rear wheels helps deliver power where it's needed most.
  • Torque vectoring-This available feature brakes the inside wheels in corners, transferring torque to the outside wheels. It helps turn the car and boost handling  performance.
  • Sport differential-Available on select S and RS models, it uses an active rear differential to send power to the outside rear wheel in corners. It also makes that wheel up to 10 percent faster!

Audi Cars with All-Wheel Drive

At this point, you may be wondering: Which Audi cars have Audi quattro® all-wheel drive? You'll find this system either standard or available on every model. On smaller, entry-level vehicles like the Audi A3, it's available as an upgrade from standard front-wheel drive (FWD). Most models, though, make it standard.
