What is VW 4Motion®?

Simply put, 4Motion® is Volkswagen's advanced AWD system. By turning a dial, the drivetrain automatically adjusts your vehicle's performance to match current road conditions. With four different 4WD modes, it's easy to optimize performance in any situation. 4Motion® works with the engine and drivetrain to distribute power between the axles to provide the best possible grip. When it detects tire slippage, the tire responds in a fraction of a second, which can make all the difference in critical weather.
