      The name quartic steering wheel gives an impression of being designed by mathematician and the name feels exotic.In reality it is a pain while driving which Europeans got the taste after driving Austin allegro.But this type of steering wheel design is slowly becoming popular.Even our Etios steering wheel is a variant of this design philosophy and Formula one cars have square launch box type of steering wheel - the real successor of this design philosophy.

      1963 Chrysler New Yorker steering wheel

      The first quartic steering wheel was first seen in 1963 Chrysler New Yorker.But this steering wheel came into limelight in Austin allegro of early 1970s.According to designers of Allegro the steering wheel helped to see the instrument cluster better ( as if original steering wheel obstructed the instrument cluster).The car name was tarnished due to this steering wheel design however variants of this design are becoming a rage these days
