With their intelligent 4×4, the ŠKODA models are equipped for every contingency. The four-wheel drive system with electronically controlled multi-plate clutch deals with the slightest change under the wheels in milliseconds. The all-wheel-drive system works quickly and intelligently and its control unit constantly calculates the ideal driving torque for the rear axle – based on the data from the engine, ABS/ESC sensors and steering wheel angle sensor.
ENGAGED ONLY WHEN NEEDED
During acceleration, the rear wheels are most effective at transferring power, so the electro-hydraulic clutch transfers as much torque as possible to the rear wheels. On the other hand, when driving at higher speeds, the rear wheel is engaged only when necessary. In normal operation, particularly with a light load and when decelerating, the multi-plate clutch sends almost all of the engine’s power to the front wheels to preserve energy and save fuel.
