A look at the Audi Quattro Ultra systemDec 29th, 2021
The Audi Quattro all-wheel drive system is one of the most renowned all-wheel drive systems in the world. Offering full-time traction and immediate stability and grip in any situation, Quattro all-wheel drive has defined Audi vehicles for decades and has been a big part of the manufacturer’s success in rally racing for years.
The system sends power to all four wheels continuously, ensuring exceptional grip when the road gets tough. A few years ago, Audi made a few significant improvements to its Quattro system with the introduction of Audi Quattro Ultra. Audi Quattro Ultra offers the same level of performance as the traditional Audi Quattro system, and ensures optimal grip and stability and confidence in any situation. The difference is that the system is more intelligent, and it can adapt to road conditions so that it is only available when needed.
In simple terms, Audi Quattro has the ability to disengage when the system detects that full traction is not needed. If you’re driving down the highway on a clear day there is no need to have power being sent to all four wheels. The system will detect that and will only send power to one axle. This dramatically improves fuel economy on the other hand, if you find yourself in a situation where wheels are spinning, like trying to get up the hill or get out of your driveway, the system can engage all four wheels immediately.
In simple terms, you enjoy all of the benefits of Quattro all Quattro with improved fuel economy. Give us a call today to learn more.
