Published on 07/02/2018

Searching for a BMW vehicle with the xDrive all-wheel drive system in the Laurentians? Instead, come test drive an Audi model equipped with the Audi quattro system, such as the 2018 A4 or the 2018 Q3, at your Audi dealership in Blainville! With better performances than rival systems in many aspects, it was developed for now close to 40 years and passed from rally cars to models for the general public, while never ceasing to be upgraded. Only one try of an Audi model with quattro will convince you that it is the best all-wheel drive system on the market; come by to see us right now! We are located on the North Shore of Montreal, close to St-Jerome and Terrebonne.

Unveiled for first time at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1980, the new Audi quattro revolutionized the automotive world, both on the rally side and the everyday one. Its numerous racing successes have demonstrated that it was possible to combine exceptional performances with optimum road handling, without sacrificing power. Now offered standard or optionally on the whole lineup of Audi vehicles, the quattro all-wheel drive system prevails over its BMW counterpart in terms of capabilities. Indeed, in snowy conditions, you will experience less understeering with the Audi than with the BMW, and your take-off from standing starts will be faster, with less skidding.

Even more, various comparative tests have demonstrated Audi’s superiority in winter conditions. If you carry out the test yourself, you will realize that when turning, your Audi model will be a lot more stable than an equivalent BMW model equipped with the xDrive system. You will feel safer on board an Audi during winters-and all year round, no matter the weather conditions-than behind the wheel of any other model of all-wheel drive vehicle.

To find out more about the quattro system and its capabilities or to see it in action in one of our vehicles-for example the 2018 A5 or in the future 2019 Audi A8-come by to meet us today at Audi Blainville, the benchmark in the Laurentians when the time comes to shop for an Audi vehicle!
