Volkswagen all-wheel drive: a smart choice!

Volkswagen's all-wheel drive system, called 4MOTION, can be found on many of the models offered by VW Canada, either as a standard feature or available on option. Designed to offer great traction at all times, this system distributes torque dynamically to all four wheels to adapt in real-time to changing road conditions.

The sensors and software of the 4MOTION system monitor the speed of each wheel several times a second. For example, if it detects that a tire is skidding, it only takes a fraction of a second for the system to send up to 50 percent of the power to the rear axle to compensate for it.
