AWD principleThe figure is schematic - details may vary depending on market and model..
The power is automatically distributed between the front and rear wheels. An electronically controlled clutch system distributes the power to the wheels that have the best grip on the current road surface. This provides the best traction and prevents wheel spin. Under normal driving conditions, the majority of power is transmitted to the front wheels.
All-wheel drive improves driving safety in rain, snow and icy conditions.
