Audi Quattro VS BMW XDrive VS Jaguar AWD - The Ultimate Test on Snow!



Interesting results. Seeing the Audi get stuck on the hill in the first run was hilarious. Wonder what happened.

Can't tell you what happened to the Audi, but I'm sure AWD didn't happen.

Audi applying slip then grip system to Quattro name/brand is a crime.

Only the MQB based Audi use Haldex based Quattro. Rest are the ones he tested, which I believe is Torsen?

The one he tested it with is not full time AWD. it's the Quattro with ultra which is a primarily a FWD system that engages awd seamlessly.

anyways not that it matters, it's just flavor at this point but it explains why the audi acts like a fwd car when going around corners

Not quite sure what the point is of comparing based on speed in snow/ice tests. Nobody is trying to win races under these conditions.

Do any of these have torque vectoring? For Audi, one has to step up to the S or RS to get the Sport Differential.
