What is All-Wheel Drive?

All-wheel drive is more efficient than four-wheel drive but provides many of the same traction and control benefits of 4WD. Unlike 4WD, AWD systems are always on and don’t need to be switched on and off manually or by a vehicle’s sensors. This can be a lifesaving difference in the event of hitting an icy patch of road that needs extra traction.

The VW 4MOTION® Difference

You’re probably wondering what makes VW 4MOTION® better than other AWD systems. With 4MOTION®, the basic framework of AWD is enhanced to boost performance.

  • With 4MOTION® AWD, about 90% of the power is distributed to the front axle and 10% to the rear axle. This intuitive power distribution provides more responsive handling on Fairfax roads.
  • When the 4MOTION® sensors sense a tire is beginning to lose traction, weight is immediately redistributed to the other tires as needed. This means the perfect balance of torque is always applied to keep you safer and more in control when cruising around Alexandria.

VW 4MOTION® Components

There are two main parts that make up the VW 4MOTION® system

  • The electronically–controlled multi–plate clutch
  • Torsen differential

The electronically–controlled multi–plate clutch (known as the Haldex coupling) controls drive torque, wheel slip, and traction handling conditions, while the Torsen differential turns on or shuts off the power transferred to the VW wheels.
