Audi is famous for its rallying history and a legacy of that is the popularity of its 4 wheel drive system, that Audi calls Quattro. The Quattro system works by sending all of the power to the front wheels until it senses they are about to slip, and then starts to divert power to the rear wheels too. This gives the new Audi A3 Quattro much better traction in poor wintry conditions.
There is a flip side to the Quattro system in that it adds about 100 kg to the weight of the car which blunts the acceleration and fuel economy figures slightly, and it also adds a bit over £1000 to the price of the car, but this can all seem worthwhile to ensure you can get home when its snowing! Audi only offer the Quattro on selected models: the A3 2.0 TFSI petrol is available in a Quattro in both manual and auto, the 2.0 diesel 170 horsepower version is available but only in manual configuration, and the top of the range S3 is fitted with quattro as standard.
