VW intro

The Volkswagen 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive presents a new spin on the traditional AWD system with the power of German engineering. Its advanced construction offers drivers better performance and control so they can handle Steinbach roads with ease. Find out more about the VW all-wheel drive system and its unique features below, and visit Auto Haus Volkswagen when you’re ready to test out a model!

Standard AWD Performance

While all-wheel drive and four-wheel offer better traction than front-wheel and rear-wheel drive, the AWD system tops the list when it comes to efficiency and performance. Unlike 4WD systems which need to be turned on and off, AWD systems continuously distribute power to both the front and rear wheels without the need for intervention from the driver or vehicle sensors. Not only is this a more convenient option, but it also provides more traction and control when it’s needed most.

Volkswagen AWD Performance


The Volkswagen 4MOTION® takes AWD vehicles a step ahead of the curve by dispersing 90% of the power to the front axle and 10% to the rear axle. This uneven distribution provides more agility for driving around Brandon roads and various terrains. Similar to some 4WD systems, the 4MOTION® sensors redistribute weight when it detects a tire is slipping which provides optimal traction for unexpected driving conditions and off-roading. This unique distribution of torque ensures drivers have more control of their Volkswagen.
