We don’t have much in the way of explanation to go on, but what we are looking at here is a couple of BMWs, a 5-Series and the 6-Series, on one side, and the 4-Series Coupe on the other side of the road, stuck on the flooded road, while the Audi A6 forges ahead with little trouble.
Few have championed the benefits of all-wheel drive quite like the Audi has, but did it really matter in this instance?
We think not since the) BMW does offer xDrive itself and it is possible that one or both of these cars came with AWD and b) these two BMWs did not get stuck because of their inferior or even the lack of the AWD system, but most likely because of some sort of mechanical or the electric failure.
Speaking of Audi’s Quattro system, even though it didn’t invent all-wheel drive, well, it has made the feature central to its approach.
Not unlike the diesel propulsion it would champion at Le Mans, well, Audi introduced the benefits of four-wheel traction to the rally scene with the Ur-Quattro way back in 1980, set about rolling it out on its production models in the following years.
By now it at least offers the Quattro all-wheel drive on all of its models, includes it as standard equipment on many.
That puts it out ahead even of Subaru, which has similarly championed the technology and doesn’t offer it on the rear-drive BRZ sports car.
