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.[1]
