4MOTION All-Wheel Drive System

One of our favorite elements of the new 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Alltrack design is the integration of the innovative 4MOTION All-Wheel Drive system. 4MOTION all-wheel drive employs a Haldex-5 coupling that will promote fuel economy on the roads with front-wheel drive and will redirect up to 50 percent of torque to the rear when it senses loss of traction. This incredible all-wheel drive technology has the capability to transfer torque from front to rear and side to side, optimizing traction and providing the driving dynamics of a crossover with the fuel economy of a compact wagon.
