distributing the engine's power permanently and optimally between all four
Trying to break an Audi allroad in half
So I go away for what I thought was a relaxing Easter weekend on a farm in
the Cederberg with some friends. Turns out the farmer is a 4x4 buff and has
laid out a challenging technical course... He was very keen to see what my
allroad could do - and so was I!
Unfortunately I was too busy driving and trying to keep up with him to get
much footage, but for this obstacle I asked the farmer's neighbour to video
me going into and out of a ditch to test suspension and traction control...
I struggled on some of the slow steep sandy sections (wrong tyres!) but was
pleased a couple of days later when he had some visitors from the Cape Town
Landrover Club - and they couldn't do those sections either!
Well I did read somewhere that the Audi allroad is the only all-wheel drive
"softroader" that has successfully completed the Landrover proving grounds
Why we love AUDI
My wife driving our old faithful after a new snowfall in nov. 2010 in
malmö Sweden. Notice no spinning, just like the car shrugs it's shoulder
(Yes they do have shoulders) and drives away. We also love other cars.
Including BMW ;-), so this isn't to spark a competition between brands and
their haters and lovers

Symmetrical. All-Wheel Drive. Control the road.
You need balance and an even distribution of power for maximum traction,
instead of the slip-then-grip alternative. Every Subaru comes standard with
Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive for better stability, efficiency and a quicker
response to slippery conditions.
