What is Volkswagen 4MOTION®?


All-wheel drive is nothing new, but with their new 4MOTION® technology, the engineers and designers at Volkswagen have achieved something truly remarkable! This Volkswagen AWD system offers all of the benefits associated with all-wheel drive models across the industry, but its unique characteristics allow it to deliver unparalleled performance. Take your Astoria and Bayside drives to the next level by learning more about VW 4MOTION®, today!

What Are the Benefits of All-Wheel Drive?

Drivers who want to enjoy superior control can often choose to upgrade their vehicles with either four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. While both offer clear benefits, there are more than a few important differences. Most four-wheel drive systems must be activated with a button, while all-wheel drive systems are always on. Although 4WD might be better suited to the backroads, AWD is preferred by drivers who want a balance of efficiency and control.

What Sets the Volkswagen AWD Performance Apart?

Some competing AWD systems route continuous power to the front wheels, shifting energy towards the rear only when it’s necessary. On Volkswagen models equipped with 4MOTION® AWD, all four of your wheels will be engaged at all times. The balance is usually similar, with the front receiving up to 90% of power, and the rear receiving 10% at minimum.

If you start to lose traction, this balance can shift dramatically, and quickly: 4MOTION® adapts to keep you moving forward, before you even start to notice slippage. Even if the roads are clean and clear, this system’s impressive capabilities are impossible to miss when you’re zipping around a curve in Bronx.

Our neighbors should also be aware that certain models offer exciting variations on 4MOTION® that you may not be able find elsewhere. For example, the list of VW Atlas performance features includes 4MOTION® with Active Control, which lets you switch between four different drive modes with a dial.
