4MOTION is an all-wheel drive system from Volkswagen. 4MOTION gives you great grip on the road, come rain, wind or snow. When the wheels begin to slip on rough terrain, the 4MOTION system will kick in and ship up to 50 percent of the drive torque back, you get a sure-footed Volkswagen with huge levels of traction.


This makes our 4MOTION technology system an innovative piece of machinery, as it actively functions to keep drivers in control during rough situations. Most interestingly, 4MOTION features are continuously available whenever the vehicle needs them, unlike other four-wheel-drive systems that require manual operation by the driver.


In addition to tight corners, there are a few situations where the 4MOTION all-wheel drive system can really come in handy. That includes times when you encounter wet slippery roads. That is because the system can detect wheel slip and correct it by cutting off power to the slipping wheel and instead routing it to a wheel that actually has some traction. This keeps you from spinning out of control.


Everyday driving doesn't really require the back set of wheels to do any work, but if you're hitting tight corners or find yourself weaving in and out of traffic, the differential definitely comes in handy. The 4MOTION assists the in taking up to 50 percent of the engine's torque and shipping it to the back for increased control and performance.


As we mentioned earlier, one of the biggest benefits of the Volkswagen 4MOTION all-wheel drive system is that it only kicks in when necessary, helping to conserve fuel.
