The all-new Audi Q5 comes equipped with quattro ultra technology. The quattro with ultra technology combines driving dynamics with efficiency and helps to cut consumption by up to 0.3 l/100 km. By switching between four-wheel drive and the more efficient front-wheel drive, four-wheel drive is used whenever the driving situation calls for it. The predictive operating strategy activates within a matter of milliseconds.
Actively controlled torque distribution constantly monitors the drive forces and distributes them between front and rear axle to suit current conditions i.e. whatever the driving situation calls for. Torque vectoring assists when cornering by enhancing traction and dynamics. Targeted braking of the inner wheels increases drive torque at the outer wheels.
With this new technology, Audi has developed an all-wheel drive system optimised for efficiency, which feels just like permanent systems in terms of traction and driving dynamics. With the new ultra technology, it is designed to set the standard in its class for fuel consumption and CO2 emissions – particularly under everyday conditions.
