Audi A1 Quattro first test are under way on the snowy roads of Canada, chosen by the Volkswagen Group to test the all-wheel drive version of  the little of Ingolstadt’s that will broaden the Audi A1 range offering an alternative, technically, to the other AWD B segment premium: the Mini Countryman.

CLOSE TO AUDI A3 AND TT: The technology being tested in the Audi A1 Quattro has already been successfully tested on the Audi A3 and Audi TT, with the presence of a Haldex joint and through the development of multi-plate clutch that allows you to optimize the torque tranfering to the rear. The latest achievements of this joint have evolved, based on the use of information coming from central controller sensors to supervise the dynamics of the vehicle, reducing the defects of this type of wheel drive: the delay in transferring torque to the axle on slip and difficulties in dealing with differences of grip on both sides of the vehicle.

In the event of loss of adhesion, however, the torque is transferred equally between the two axles increasing the stability of the car. The Audi A1 four should reach the market later this year.

We must be looking at different cars – I see a lack of design ingenuity highlighted by a ‘corporate template’ shrunk and squished to fit a microcar.
