The quattro Sport differential on the rear axle ensures more dynamic driving behaviour with greater directional stability. The classic rear-axle differential has been additionally equipped with two superposition gears with electronically controlled multi-plate clutches. At all times, the intelligent quattro strategy calculates a drive torque split that is geared towards superb handling and distributes the torque actively and variably between the rear wheels. When steering or accelerating in a bend, the torque is predominantly diverted to the far-side wheel, actually pushing the vehicle into the corner. As a result, the system can counteract the tendency to understeer at an early stage.
