2018 Audi A5 quattro®
Standard quattro® all-wheel drive
Under most conditions, the quattro® all-wheel drive system’s torque distribution ratio is 40:60 front-to-rear for dynamic handling and performance. A sophisticated self-locking center differential can send as much as 70 percent of power to the front wheels or 85 percent to the rear wheels to help maintain control and optimize performance.

Available quattro® all-wheel drive with ultra® technology
Ultra® technology is the latest quattro® advancement and comes standard on the A5 with a six-speed manual transmission. Using sophisticated sensors, ultra® technology is both virtually predictive and proactive. By analyzing data, the system can think ahead and switch between allwheel drive and two-wheel drive to help adjust with changing weather and road conditions.
To help enhance directional stability around corners, the quattro® system slows the inside cornering wheels by applying minimal, selective braking pulses.
