One way to look at the relative handling benefits of Quattros Vs 4X4 trucks
in snow/ice is to examine the relative handling of the vehicles on pavement.
I believe that it is fair to say that Quattros readily outhandle all 4X4
trucks on pavement. This superior handing translates directly to snow/ice
performance as well, but possibly by some reduced handling differential factor.
I know I'd rather ride up to the ski mountains in a smooth/quiet/efficient/fast/
comfortable/great-handling/luxurious Quattro Vs a truck anyday!
