When browsing through the remarkable selection of Audi models at Vin Devers Autohaus of Sylvania, you may come across the term Audi quattro® in your search. Just what is Audi quattro®? This revolutionary all-wheel drive system provides optimal performance and handling, no matter the weather and road conditions. Read on to find out how Audi quattro® can dramatically enhance your daily commute.

The History of Audi quattro®

More than three decades ago, Audi quattro® hit the market as the first permanent all-wheel drive system for the passenger car segment. Since then it’s been imitated, but never duplicated, by other automakers across the globe.

In 1980, to help invigorate the brand, engineers at Audi proposed the quattro® system. Executives were skeptical, but after watching how quattro® performed in the snowy, icy conditions of the Alps, those executives quickly changed their minds. They decided to invest in putting the system into production.

What Can Audi quattro® Do?

  • Available torque-vectoring technology, along with the quattro® system’s iconic grip, improves handling and cornering in snowy, wet, or dry conditions.
  • In wet conditions, Audi quattro® intuitively sends power to all four wheels. This means that you can expect maximum traction and grip.
  • The Audi quattro® system is not one size fits all – it is uniquely tailored to your specific model. For example, SUVs have a different system than the special version found on high-performance models. This means you can expect a customized system that has been expertly crafted for your vehicle.
