THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AWD & 4WD


If you live in North Hollywood, CA or Long Beach, CA, you may be wondering what the difference is between AWD and 4WD. There are a couple of key distinctions between the two, the most important being the vehicle type that features each system. 4WD is the exclusive province of trucks and heavy-duty, off-road-focused SUVs. 4WD is a heavier, more complex setup than AWD, and so it requires a vehicle that’s specifically designed to handle the extra weight and components. 4WD drive is for vehicles that spend a lot of time off the beaten path. On the other hand, AWD is a lighter, more flexible system that can be integrated into a wider variety of automobile, including sedans, wagons, and SUVs. Also, AWD is “always on”, directing power to whichever wheel(s) needs it most, whereas 4WD can be turned on and off by the driver as needed.

Our Los Angeles, CA MINI dealership caters to the entire South Bay Region. Visit us today and learn more about the differences between AWD and 4WD!


DRIVING CONDITIONS FOR AWD & 4WD


If you’re seeking to purchase a vehicle like a MINI Cooper Countryman, you’ll be thrilled with this vehicle’s generous equipment list, eye-catching styling, and roomy interior, as well as its available AWD system. AWD will serve you well in any kind of weather, whether you’re driving in snow, rain, or sleet. In fact, AWD can be more advantageous than 4WD in some weather conditions, based on the difference in how each system delivers power to the vehicle’s wheels. Another AWD car we offer is the MINI Cooper Paceman, a compact coupe that also features great visibility, a fuel-efficient powertrains, and a compelling driver seat experience.
