What is Volkswagen 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive?

Volkswagen Tiguan Driving


It’s highly likely that you are familiar with all-wheel drive, but Volkswagen takes things a step further with its VW 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive. Many vehicles in the VW lineup offer this feature. This new take on typical all-wheel drive offers advanced technology that enhances both performance and handling. Volkswagen of Salem County would be glad to explain this Volkswagen all-wheel drive system for drivers in the Vineland area. 

Standard AWD Performance

In terms of vehicle performance, all-wheel drive is more efficient than four-wheel drive. However, when you look at the traction and control, both systems are quite similar. AWD systems are constantly engaged, but 4WD systems can be switched on when necessary. This can be done by the driver or the vehicle’s sensors. Having 4WD is better than basic FWD or RWD, but keep in mind that there is always a time delay with 4WD. This can be noticeable, for example, when you hit an unexpected patch of ice on the Millville roadways.

Volkswagen AWD Performance

Volkswagen 4MOTION® AWD vehicles build on the framework of traditional AWD for further enhanced performance. Each tire will always be engaged, however, most often, 4MOTION® AWD will distribute about 90% of the power to the front axle and 10% to the rear axle. What is the benefit of this? This type of distribution gives Washington Township drivers the advantage of responsive handling like what is provided by FWD vehicles, while still providing a quick shift for additional traction.

If the 4MOTION® sensors detect a tire is beginning to lose traction, weight is immediately redistributed as needed. Because of this, you can expect an ideal balance of torque to be applied. 4MOTION® gives you added peace of mind when you hit the Mullica Hill streets, no matter the weather conditions outside.
