Introduced on the 2018 Audi Q5, Quattro Ultra is a new improved Quattro all-wheel drive system that is more efficient while still ensuring optimal grip in any condition.
The major difference between the standard quattro and quattro Ultra is the presence of a two-clutch system which enables the rear differential to be decoupled when all-wheel drive is not needed.
In normal conditions, the car will drive off and continue in front-wheel drive and all the wheel drive “on demand” standby, with the system automatically kicking in the moment surface conditions require it. Thus saving fuel by about 0.3 litres which is quite impressive.
At the start of 2016, the new Audi A4 all road quattro became the first Audi model to feature quattro with Ultra technology.
