The entry-level diesel has standard front-wheel drive, and the 2.0 TDI 140 kW (190 hp) also has a version with front-wheel drive. quattro permanent all-wheel drive is standard equipment for all other engines.

The driver can use the optional Audi drive select system to vary the engine’s throttle response, steering characteristic and shift points of the automatic transmission.
