Quattro 1/2 sec faster 0-62mph, or is it?
I was just comparing the acceleration of an A3 Quattro 184ps and a Golf GTD. Both have the same engine, just 4WD vs. 2WD.
Quattro 6.9 sec vs. GTD 7.5 sec?
So I then compared the Audi 1.8 TFSI Quattro and the Audi 1.8 TFSI FWD.
Quattro 6.8 sec vs. FWD 7.3 sec!
So it would appear that the Quattro is 1/2 sec faster from 0-62mph. Though my theory is that the 30-62 times are going to be the same, as the Quattro's advantage is initial traction. Above 30 that advantage would be less of a factor.
Anyone know where I would find the 50-70mph figures for the 1.8 TFSI Quattro and FWD. Maybe the in gear acceleration numbers for a comparison?
