For years, people have been debating what’s better, an all-wheel drive system, or rear wheel drive one. Individuals who value performances above everything else will generally stick to the first option, while people searching for the ultimate driving sensation will naturally lean towards the later mentioned.
However, did you know that AWD is not the same as 4wd? Nope, we are not only talking about the insane Mercedes 6×6 G Wagon here either. Alex from Car Throttle is here today to explain the subtle differences between the two, by using science!
