Audi quattro technology: all-wheel grip for everyday trips
Audi quattro gives you grip, whatever the weather. It is Audi’s renowned four-wheel-drive technology that makes driving simultaneously safer and more enjoyable on all surfaces and in any condition, from a wet or icy motorway slip-road to a dry, smoothly surfaced, twisty mountain road. Audi quattro is more than a technology, it is a philosophy that stands for safety, sportiness and a dynamic approach to driving. With quattro, power is sent to the wheels that need it most for superior handling and unrivalled levels of grip, even when conditions are not in your favour. Drivers have been enjoying quattro since 1980 and since then more than five million Audis with permanent all-wheel drive have been built.

Even in perfect conditions on perfect roads, quattro works to make sure every ounce of power is being sent where it’s needed. It works to maximise the responsiveness of your Audi, making the driving experience as dynamic and as rewarding as possible.
quattro in the rain
Wet roads can cause loss of traction that in turn result in loss of grip. quattro constantly analyses the grip of each of your Audi’s four wheels and delivers power to the ones it feels are most capable of handing it.
quattro on ice and snow
Ice and snow make for the most challenging driving conditions. quattro means all four wheels work together, diverting power to whichever wheel it feels has the most amount of grip, helping you to stay on the road and in control.

Audi is supporting scientists in the Google Lunar XPRIZE competition by sharing knowledge of technologies such as quattro all-wheel drive.
