The Cutting-Edge VW 4MOTION® System

2021 Volkswagen Atlas V6 SEL with 4MOTION

Are you in the market for an AWD Volkswagen automobile? We don’t blame you! Each AWD Volkswagen is equipped with VW 4MOTION®. What is that? It’s an incredibly advanced all-wheel drive system that coordinates multiple parts of your vehicle to work with your drivetrain so that you can take Atlantic City roads with confidence, even in rough conditions. Let’s get into the details about this revolutionary technology and how 4MOTION® differs from any other all-wheel drive system on the market.

How All-Wheel Drive Works

A front-wheel drive system sends all power to the front axle, while a rear-wheel drive system sends power to the rear axle. But an all-wheel drive system monitors the traction of all four wheels and distributes power between the front and rear axles as needed. A lot of all-wheel drive drivetrains activate the AWD part-time as needed, defaulting to front or rear-wheel drive. The Volkswagen AWD system goes beyond that. VW 4MOTION® stays on full-time so that it can react in a fraction of a second, which can make all the difference in an emergency situation. That’s part of what makes an AWD Volkswagen automobile stand out against the competition.

How VW 4MOTION® Stands Apart

VW 4MOTION® does more than even other full-time AWD systems by communicating with other systems, like the clutch, the anti-lock braking system, electronic-stability technologies, and traction control systems, to give you the most control possible. The 4MOTION® system in most AWD Volkswagen vehicles defaults to sending 90% of the power to the front axle and 10% to the rear axle in most driving conditions. That means you get the handling and steering control of a front-wheel drive vehicle, while providing the traction control of an all-wheel drive system. That translates to a safer Wildwood commute.
