What is Volkswagen 4MOTION technology?


Volkswagen 4Motion technology is Volkswagen's proprietary four-wheel drive system designed to provide increased traction and handling on wet and loose surfaces as well as enhanced stability while navigating stormy or windy conditions.



4MOTION in Action


When the 4MOTION system is being utilized, driver's experience optimum control and traffic benefits such as increased cornering speeds as well as premium straight-line performance, in turn allowing the user a safer, more enjoyable ride.


Furthermore, the 4MOTION system can be easily combined with all dynamics control systems including Engine Drag Torque (MSR), Electronic Stabilization Control (ESC), Anti-Slip Regulation Traction Control (ASR) and the Electronic Differential Lock (EDL) providing users with a clear edge over common driver operated four-wheel-drive systems.





The inclusion of 4MOTION technology allows driver's unmatched handling and stability in almost all weather conditions, regardless of where your Volkswagen takes you.






How it works?


The core of the 4MOITION All-Wheel Drive system in most cases consists of a differential between both the front and rear axles often regarded as the center-differential.


This differential distributes torque, allowing the system to compensate both axles accordingly in the event of a slip or loss of traction, all while balancing minor differences in rotation speed, preventing torsional stress on the vehicle's drive train.
