The first thing to remember – not all cars are identical with 4WD. There are different configurations. For example, automatically connect (it is activated depending on the driving situation), full manual (it controls the driver) or permanent full.
The benefits of all-wheel drive are obvious: throughput, better stability on the road, especially in difficult weather conditions. At the same time, on the “4×4″ There is a misconception that both understates and overstates its capabilities.

Let’s start with one of the most common myths that all-wheel drive King “off-road” and is useless in the city. In fact, it is not. Firstly, a more uniform distribution of torque provides better stability of the vehicle on the road. In winter, it is especially important. Second, cars with AWD is very difficult to put in the bank (this is a little more – below). Third, four-wheel drive provides increased dynamics. So, this is the advantage when driving in a stream or when overtaking on the track.

on the latest models Subaru through the optimal allocation of effort on all motor axes, efficiency motors and coordinated work of the variator, it is possible to maintain an acceptable rate. Let’s say, Subaru XV, equipped with the Symmetrical AWD system, uses a mixed mode 7 to 8 liters of fuel, Subaru Outback – about 9 liters, Subaru Legacy with permanent all-wheel drive – 8 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers. Not all front-wheel drive cars can boast of such modest appetite!
