How Does 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive Work?

Unlike four-wheel drive, all-wheel drive is always working and doesn’t need to be switch on or off. The 4MOTION® AWD system offers all the benefits of AWD — and then some. Using sensors, the system can detect which wheels and tires are losing traction and sends a power boost. Additionally, 4MOTION® takes a page from 4WD’s book and can switch to front- or rear-wheel to maximize fuel economy wherever possible. Whether you’re running errands around Washington DC or off-roading, you can feel confident your VW is receiving the ideal balance of torque.
