Audi quattro Technology

Audi quattro technology

quattro in all its forms

Using leading edge technology, quattro is designed to give you superior driving performance, fuel efficiency and power in any weather or terrain.

Distributing power to the wheels, the Audi quattro system ensures you not only stay safe and in control, but that you experience the best grip and traction when you need it the most.

 

How it works

Multi-plate clutch

To balance performance and efficiency, the hydraulic multi-plate clutch can distribute power and torque to the front, rear or variably between both axles based on the driving conditions to maximize drivability.

Self-locking differential

Delivering torque between the front and rear with a 40 to 60 percent distribution, this quattro system engages all four wheels regularly. The system can push power forwards, backwards, left or right, depending on the driving situation.

quattro with ultra technology

quattro with ultra offers maximum traction on multiple terrains with a new level of efficiency. Using cutting edge technology, our quattro AWD system examines road conditions and uses this data to respond proactively to your driving needs.

e-quattro

The latest generation in AWD technologies, is the electric all-wheel drive system. The electric model line quattro AWD system can modify the amount of power being sent to each individual wheel to meet driving conditions and improve range.
