How Does it Work?

Both the electro-hydraulic and the more in-depth mechanical versions of 4MOTION® AWD utilize a wide range of vehicle systems to help attain a maximum level of traction. This includes the use of systems like:

  • Anti-lock brake system (ABS)
  • Electronic stability control system
  • Traction control system
  • Vehicle sensor systems

The Volkswagen 4MOTION® AWD uses sensors to detect road conditions, driving behavior, and any wheel slippage. If there are any abnormalities, the system is able to adjust the amount of power sent to each of the axles, giving you as much traction as possible. Whether you’re headed out on an all-terrain adventure or driving around Dulles in the rain or snow, 4MOTION® AWD gives you versatility.
