Volkswagen 4Motion keeps you in motion regardless of the weather

We all rely on the TV weather guys and girls to let us know what to expect and perhaps how to dress for any particular day. But those of us in Florida know that weather forecasting is basically a spectator sport that changes by the moment. To paraphrase Mark Twain, "If you don't like the weather down here now, just wait a few minutes."

Reasoning like that is why Napleton's Volkswagen of Orlando offers you a choice between standard Volkswagen models and all-wheel-drive 4Motion-equipped VW cars and SUVs. Capable of providing traction assistance in snow, sand, wind and rain, Volkswagen 4Motion vehicles provide extra peace of mind while encountering the most challenging driving conditions, whether on or off road.

What is All-Wheel-Drive?

All-wheel-drive (AWD) vehicles are those that send power to all four wheels, depending on their torque needs, while 4-Wheel-Drive (4WD) is a system that is turned on or off as needed. When turning the 4WD system off, the vehicle reverts back to its normal front or rear wheel drive configuration.

Volkswagen 4Motion AWD is similar but in an automatic sort of fashion, sending power to all four wheels but varying between front and rear as well as side to side. As an example, imagine encountering a slippery stretch of highway, right after a sudden rain storm.

All four wheels are on the job, receiving varying amounts of torque until traction has been regained. At that time, power is restored to the vehicle's normal front (FWD) or rear wheel drive (RWD) configuration. The best part though, is that 4Motion only uses the amount of fuel necessary to power all four wheels for only as long as that power is necessary.

Volkswagen gives you choices
