The Difference between AWD and 4WD

While looking at all-wheel drive vehicles, they are not only lighter weight than a four-wheel drive, but the power is put out to the tires that need it the most. AWD is a desirable option for any driver that experiences wintry weather and bad road conditions or any driver that wants improved control and handling.

With four-wheel drive, you will have power sent out to all of the wheels at one time to give good performance in poor weather conditions. A 4WD system is also great for any tough road conditions like gravel, rock, and dirt. This is why you will usually see four-wheel drive on a vehicle made for off-roading.

You can visit our team at Country Hills Hyundai and we can detail all of the differences that set AWD and 4WD apart.

Driving Conditions for AWD and 4WD

When you want to be able to take on more rugged terrain, we can talk with you about your options in a 4WD 2018 Hyundai Tucson. This is a durable and dependable SUV able to take on a wide variety of terrain and road conditions. If you are hoping to try your hand at one of our AWD models, we will be happy to show you options like the beautiful new 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe. Fun to drive and loaded with technology, this is a great option in a vehicle investment. No matter which of the options that you choose, you will have our professional customer service team to talk you throughout the buying or leasing process.

Making the decision to go with a four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive vehicle is never something you have to do on your own. Call us today at Country Hills Hyundai at (403) 984-9696 for more information.
