How Does Volkswagen’s 4MOTION Work?

Volkswagen 4MOTION is an advanced all-wheel drive system that offers smooth, controlled handling and extra traction during slippery or unstable road conditions. 4Motion automatically and almost instantly adapts to the road and distributes power to individual wheels as needed.

How Does 4MOTION Know Which Wheels to Send Power To?

A control unit, known as the Haldex clutch system, constantly monitors wheel traction as you drive. It senses when one or more wheels aren’t getting as much traction and automatically redistributes power to other wheels to compensate.

For example, if one of your wheels starts to spin in a puddle, power will be transferred to wheels that have a better grip. By doing this, it is easier to maintain control in hazardous conditions. This process happens almost instantly, usually before the driver can even notice the loss of traction.
