When it comes to Audi’s quattro brand, there are two camps among fans and observers. Traditionalist gearheads prefer the ‘old-school’ rear-biased Torsen quattro system, while vehicles based on the MQB platform like the Q5 have a front-biased Haldex system.

Sometimes, familiarity breeds discontent. Such was not the case with the Audi Q5, however.
