Stay in control

With 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive, you’re getting an All-Wheel Drive system that can help you avoid any wheel slip so you can feel confident on and off the road. Even before you hit less-than-ideal road conditions, 4MOTION® is in the background using sensors and software to monitor your wheel speed multiples times per second. Should your tires begin to slip, in a fraction of a second, up to 50% of the engine’s power is sent to the rear axle as needed. 4MOTION® truly gives confidence in your drive a whole new meaning.

Different modes* for whatever Mother Nature throws your way

*Modes are only available for Tiguan, Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport

In Snow Mode, the engine is kept in a lower RPM range, which prevents too much power going to the wheels too quickly. In concert with 4MOTION®, Snow Mode provides sure-footedness in even the fiercest winter weather.
