What is VW 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive?

All-wheel drive vehicles are increasingly common on the streets near Huntington and Hempstead, but if you’ve never driven with Volkswagen before, you might not know very much about the benefits of VW 4MOTION® all-wheel drive technology. Fear not! Platinum Volkswagen has you covered with performance and safety advantages offered by the feature.

What Sets VW 4MOTION® AWD Apart?

These days, it would be difficult to find a vehicle manufacturer which didn’t offer some form of all-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. However, this hardly means that all OEMs are equals on this highly-competitive front. Most all-wheel drive vehicles will stay in front-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive for the majority of the time, so all four wheels will only receive power when the system deems it necessary!

With VW 4MOTION® AWD, all four tires will be engaged at all times. In normal circumstances, you’ll enjoy a 90% : 10% front/rear power distribution on the roads near Huntington or Bethpage. So, rather than waiting for the roads to pose a challenge, 4MOTION® lets you enjoy improved performance on 100% of your daily drives! If the front wheels do begin to slip, the 4MOTION® system will instantly transfer more power to the rear before you ever notice a difference!

Why Do Drivers Choose Volkswagen All-Wheel Drive?

As we noted above, all-wheel drive allows for significant improvements to both performance and passenger safety! Here’s why more and more drivers are choosing to improve their day-to-day with the new Volkswagen technology:

  • Compared to four-wheel drive systems, which often need to be activated with a button, AWD technologies provide instant security without requiring the intervention of a driver. What’s more, four-wheel drive systems tend to consume more fuel, while active, than otherwise comparable all-wheel drive systems.
  • Compared to other all-wheel drive vehicles, Volkswagen stands apart by offering a level of constant AWD assurance. Although many other manufacturers will talk up the “instant” responsiveness of their products, the truth is that there’s always going to be some sort of small delay! With VW, that delay is eliminated.
