i will apologise in advance because I'm sure this subject has been spoken about before! But from all the threads I have read, my specific question hasn't been answered.
Basically I've set my heart on a 170 diesel s line, and I also said I wanted a Quattro, but they are hard to come by in my price range. However I have seen quite a few non Quattro versions in my price range. All the Quattro vs non Quattro threads I have read mainly mention the benefits in terms of getting the power down at traffic lights and junctions etc.
my question is, what are the benefits (if any) are there of having Quattro in terms of the cars handling? Coming from a mk4 golf which feels quite boaty going round corners, I want a car that is composed and tight in the corners, if that makes any sense! So would the non Quattro do the job or does the Quattro make a significant difference?
