With unsafe conditions accounting for a sizeable percentage of road-incidents, anything that will improve the safety of ourselves and our families on the road is of paramount importance. Though many may associate all-wheel drive with rugged adventure (and it certainly does have a place in that), it’s actually a feature we can all find a use for.
Here in Illinois, we know what the winters can be like. All-wheel drive can make all the difference in offering drivers the control they need when the snow and ice starts coming down. So as we look at Volkswagen’s 2019 lineup offerings, its important to consider: which 2019 Volkswagen models come with all-wheel drive?
Volkswagen calls its own special variation of all-wheel drive 4Motion AWD. What sets 4Motion apart from other AWD systems is the way in which it distributes force intelligently, specially adjusting the power supplied to each individual wheel. This allows the wheels to maintain an even level of traction across the board, resulting in superior grip and control.
2019 Volkswagen Models with All-Wheel Drive
For 2019, six Volkswagen models feature 4Motion all-wheel drive: the Tiguan, Tiguan Limited, Atlas, Golf SportWagen, Golf Alltrack, and Golf R. The upcoming 2019 Volkswagen Arteon will have AWD available.
As SUVs, you probably expect the Tiguan, Tiguan Limited, and Atlas to come with all-wheel drive. Volkswagen’s 4Motion AWD helps these vehicles explore the far corners of the globe in the adventurous, rugged off-roading way that they’re built for. Tackling difficult terrain has never been smoother.
All-wheel drive is less commonly found on compacts like the Golf R, or wagons like the Golf SportWagen and the Golf Alltrack. That’s what makes Volkswagen’s addition of the feature to these models so innovative and exciting. Drivers can broaden their horizons and explore where they hadn’t dared before, or just get up that particularly difficult incline when the road is buried under an Illinois winter snowstorm.
