All-Wheel Drive in the 2019 VW Tiguan

The Tiguan uses 4MOTION all-wheel drive to adjust the power levels between each wheel as needed. This is useful especially for taking turns.

Not only is the all-wheel drive helping the Tiguan handle well, but there are four modes the driver can activate if conditions get harsh. The first mode is Snow Mode, which slows the amount of power from reaching the wheels to prevent slipping. With the harsh Wisconsin winters, this will be incredibly useful down the road! On-Road mode is designed for typical driving conditions on roads and offers four settings the driver can choose from regarding comfort and performance. The Off-Road Mode helps keep the traction you need. Hill Descent Control is installed in this mode to regulate your speed when coasting downhill. Off-Road Custom works similarly, but it takes your preferences on how you want the mode to handle the steering and all-wheel drive.
