2018 S3 individual quattro drive select settings

Hey guys,

Just a quick question about the quattro options on the individual setting on drive select on my 2018 S3 FL.

Does putting quattro into dynamic mean it’s permanently 50/50 front rear distribution (until you lose traction)? So would putting quattro into dynamic be better for when it snows/icey conditions?

Thanks in advance!

I have just picked up a 2018 model too and noticed the quattro option. Not much info out there but what i did read was dynamic makes the quattro more willing to distrubute power to the rear wheels. The quattro on the S3 never runs at 50/50 as default.

Thanks for your reply, yep it doesn’t run at 50/50 on default. Will be interesting to see replies about the quattro setting, hoping we get a definitive answer

In quattro dynamic it will reduce understeer. Traction will remain about the same as other modes in snow....Tyre choice (winter tyres) will give you substantially better overall control in snow /icy conditions.
