4MOTION is an all-wheel drive system from Volkswagen. 4MOTION gives you great grip on the road, come rain, wind or snow. However treacherous the road surface, you get a sure-footed car with huge levels of traction.


Volkswagen has been producing all-wheel drive vehicles since the 1970's, from the Dakar Rally winning Volkswagen Iltis to a multitude of Syncro passenger car and commercial vehicle models of the eighties and nineties. The Volkswagen all-wheel drive system was renamed 4MOTION in the late 80's and the range of offers 4MOTION models is continuing to grow to this day.



Our all-wheel drive systems work hard to keep you safe, linking with other active safety systems on your Volkswagen to constantly monitor driving conditions. It reacts to even the slightest wheel slip and automatically sends the right amount of power to the wheels with the most grip. The second it detects a problem; 4MOTION delivers extra traction where it's needed.


As a driver you get reassuring stability and optimum control. 4MOTION gives you the confidence that your Volkswagen can safely tackle the roughest roads and the worst weather conditions. This all-wheel drive system lets you relax and enjoy your drive, knowing that 4MOTION is always on the alert to keep you safe and help you out of tricky situations. 4MOTION drives safely on snow, ice, slippery roads, and muddy tracks. It will help you get out of places where a normal car would be stuck.


Many drivers believe that all-wheel drive is only necessary in extreme driving situations. And honestly, when was the last time you had to scale an icy slope in a snowstorm or drive through deep mud? But 4MOTION is not just a lifesaver in moments of automotive distress. Permanent all-wheel drive from Volkswagen makes everyday driving safer and more comfortable for everyone. It's there whenever the going gets rough, such as when it rains or if the road is slippery or icy.

Where and how longitudinal and lateral forces are at work in the front, rear and all-wheel drive, and what consequences that can have in extreme situations, is best illustrated by fast cornering. The result: the faster the forces can be balanced between the wheels, the better the car handles on the road. That requires clear directions for the propulsive forces. In 4MOTION drive, the Haldex coupling is the key to grip. This is an electronically controlled multiple-plate coupling that variably distributes the drive force between the front and rear axles – always to the axle with the best traction. A control unit handles the continuous adjustment and takes account of the slip, drive torques and information about driving dynamics (road speed, cornering, overrun or acceleration mode). And if appropriate, nearly 100 percent of the drive torque can be directed to the rear axle.


The fifth generation of the Haldex coupling was introduced in 2012. Volkswagen has included it in the Golf 7 models with 4MOTION. Normally, Haldex couplings only react when the revolution numbers for the two axles are different, then ensuring a power transmission. In the current models, the electronics system recognises that the clutch has to close before traction is lost – such as when setting off, which all but eliminates the possibility of traction loss. In tight corners, the system independently avoids strain in the drivetrain by reducing torque, while in the case of a rapid burst of acceleration, the clutch torque is increased in split seconds.


Parallel to the Haldex coupling functioning as an inter-axle differential lock, the electronic differential locks (EDL) integrated in the electronic stabilisation program perform the function of inter-wheel differential locks. They ensure that the drive force when a wheel is spinning is directed to the opposite side within a fraction of a second. Moreover, the front and rear axles are equipped with the additional function XDS, which brakes the inner wheels during fast cornering and thus optimises steering behaviour.


4MOTION for the Touareg is a full-time all-wheel drive system requiring no driver input. The Touareg's 4MOTION uses mechanical torque-sensing (Torsen) center differential to direct power to the axle with most traction. By default, the Touareg's torque split is set at 40% to the front axle and 60% to the rear axle, but the 4MOTION can send up to 60% to the front axle and up to 80% to the rear axle in low-traction conditions.
