Angled slightly toward you, the driver-oriented cockpit with a
hand-stitched, leather-wrapped steering wheel is the focal point, where

The award-winning 2.0 TFSI engine provides 211 hp and 258 lb-ft. of torque
and combines Audi valvelift system, variable valve timing and TFSI® direct
injection for increased power and efficiency. The Audi 2.0 TFSI® has been the
engine of choice for more than 1.3 million Audi drivers worldwide and is one of

Permanent all-wheel drive systems are not created equal. And they certainly
don't perform that way, either. quattro® is essentially a mechanical system
devised around a torque-sensing, self-locking, center differential that shifts
torque instantaneously to where it's needed. This means quattro® is adjusting
power between front and rear axles more than 100 times a second, helping ensure
torque is delivered to the wheels where traction exists. Under normal driving
situations, quattro® distributes the power between each axle by sending 40
percent to the front wheels and 60 percent to the rear wheels, enhancing the
driving dynamics while helping maintain optimum control. Constantly assessing
grip, quattro® ensures the best possible combination of traction and handling,
regardless of the road conditions.
