So, we've finally started to get snow here in Ohio ... which is rather unsettling that until today, we had no measurable snow accumulation this year. Anyways, as an owner of both a Subaru AND an Audi, I'm always amused that these two companies never seem to go head to head in any AWD comparo's.
I can find ones where Subaru obviously trounces on their competition,
and I can find ones where Audi kills their competition,
but I can never find any comparos where the two systems go head to head. That bothers me. They are both, arguably, the best AWD cars on the road, yet nobody seems to ever pit them head to head. The closest I've gotten is this Acura SH-AWD comparo where it highlights the drawbacks to Audi's reluctance to put mechanical LSDs in their cars. As such, this video shows when one side of the car has zero traction, how the quattro basically becomes useless. As my Subaru came with a rear LSD, in this scenario, it would've pulled ahead on the slope test.
Anyways, the question is, does anyone know of any videos or magazine articles that pit Audi and Subaru against each other in snow/ice conditions?
