Merge[edit]

Quattro and 4motion (previously known as syncro) are two very different systems - one is longitudinal, the other transverse. Merging is not suitable. Preceding unsigned comment added by Dcrooke (talk · contribs) 11:15, 25 January 2009

WRONG. Both this article and the quattro article CLEARLY state that the terms '4motion' and 'quattro' are simply trademark names to indicate that 4wd drivelines are fitted. They also CLEARLY state that neither name in any way indicates which TYPE of 4wd system is used. Finally, you can have EITHER a longitudinal OR transverse 4motion system - and the same can be said for Audis' quattro. 78.32.143.113 (talk) 14:16, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Volkswagen AG's marketing has confused this issue by applying the label "quattro" to the 4wd models of Audi TT, even though they use a 4motion drive train. Preceding unsigned comment added by Dcrooke (talk · contribs) 11:15, 25 January 2009

WRONG again. Volkswagen AG's and Audi AGs' own web pages make it very clear that 4motion and quattro are simply tradenames, and that they do NOT referr to the specific type of 'hardware' used.!!! 78.32.143.113 (talk) 14:16, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

They shouldn't be merged they aren't the same system. Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.237.185.229 (talk · contribs) 15:15, 31 August 2010

syncro != 4motion[edit]

I was redirected from "syncro" to the "4-motion" page.

However there is a big difference between the syncro and the 4-motion, the latter being a haldex unit. The syncro simply consists of a rear differential with a viscous coupling to the longitudal axle. If the speed difference between the front and rear wheels becomes larger (aka the front wheel slip), more power is distributed to the rear.

The haldex unit is a much more complex unit, which includes a mechanical hydraulic pump and a number of electronically controlled valves Preceding unsigned comment added by 194.171.252.100 (talk · contribs) 08:15, 16 February 2009
