quattro® all-wheel drive

The quattro® all-wheel drive system in the Audi RS 5 is engineered to distribute 40% of its power to the front wheels and 60% to the rear axle for dynamic handling characteristics. When the system senses a loss of traction, power distribution changes, with up to 70% of the power sent to the front wheels or up to 85% of the power applied to the rear wheels.

quattro® sport rear differential

The Audi RS 5 features a quattro® sport rear differential as standard equipment. By mechanically shifting torque to the outside rear cornering wheel, the sport differential helps propel the vehicle through curves.
