Some of our customers have asked us what is the difference between 4WD and AWD. In this case we will talk about the advantages of AWD (All Wheel Drive).

Usually known by its acronym in English, this four-wheel drive system is generally automatic and we do not feel it until there is some condition on the ground or a sharp curve, and that is when we can have more control of the car.

In a previous blog we explored the torque of a used car. Well now, this torque is transmitted to the wheels automatically, introducing changes when driving where more traction is needed.

When driving at high speeds normally the AWD is constantly monitoring the handling and applies different specifications to each wheel so that the vehicle moves in direct line and without loss of control.
