What Is Volkswagen Passat 4Motion?

The VW 4Motion® is an all-wheel drive system that’s exclusive to Volkswagen models. This drivetrain provides permanent engagement to the driver. It can allow drivers to handle slick roads or rough terrain, because it splits the power in half evenly between the front and rear wheels. However, the system can vary the power distribution based on style of driving or road conditions.
