Is this the next cult 4WD and AWD manufacturer?
Why Volkswagen is the one to watch when it comes to AWD and 4WD vehicles in 2019.
Volkswagen isn’t as synonymous with all-wheel drive as, say, Subaru. The latter has developed a loyal following on the back of its product offering that – with the exception of the rear-drive BRZ coupe – is exclusively all-wheel drive. And the company markets it well.
The German brand is better known for its growing range of passenger cars, SUVs and commercial vehicles, but VW is now keen to shine a spotlight on its all- and four-wheel-drive offerings as a genuine alternative to the likes of Subaru.
VW’s 4Motion system is now offered on more models than ever before. In fact, every second Volkswagen sold in Australia is fitted with 4Motion. Given the company’s sales of more than 56,000 units last year, that’s a decent chunk.
