What is 4Motion AWD

4Motion is the Volkswagen AWD system. It differs from traditional fixed distribution in a few major ways. Unlike traditional AWD systems, 4Motion is always active. Volkswagen describes it as “power [being] distributed between front and rear axles on an infinitely variable basis by a multi-plate clutch.” By utilizing many sensors, the 4Motion system can detect poor conditions and automatically sends power to any individual wheel that will need it. All of this takes place in a fraction of a second without any extra input from the driver. This almost completely negates potential wheelspin or slippage. And if the wheels do slip, you know that your Volkswagen is already supplying the necessary power to help you keep the vehicle under control. This is very different from the toggleable 80%-front/20%-rear power distribution of traditional systems.
