All-wheel-drive is a feature typically associated with sedans, crossovers, wagons, and some select SUVs. This automated system constantly tracks where power should be sent and which wheels it should be sent to, so you're able to keep your vehicle on track.

All-wheel drive allows your car to receive the best possible traction. At Maguire Auto, we think you should know what some of the best all-wheel-drive cars are for drives throughout Ithaca, Trumansburg, and Watkins Glen. Here are some of the top options we're proud to sell.

Subaru Outback

Subaru is well-known for featuring all-wheel-drive standard on almost every model. With the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, balance and traction will be optimized. The system is along the centerline of the car, with weight being distributed between the two sides to provide the best possible control and performance.

Because power is distributed to the wheels with the best traction, it maintains a grip on the road, particularly when traveling in low-traction situations. Front-wheel drive cars may understeer, while rear-wheel vehicles can oversteer a turn. This system provides confidence in almost every weather condition.

Honda CR-V

The crossover Honda CR-V comes with available Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System. This offers outstanding handling on rough terrain and in snowy or wet conditions. Whenever you're heading out on an adventure, this is the system you'll want to have protecting you.

If the CR-V begins to lose traction, the rear differential will be engaged, so the vehicle begins to drive with both the rear wheel sand front wheels. The Intelligent Control System will activate instantly, seamlessly turning the rear wheels when needed.

Audi A4

The Audi A4 sedan is a sporty, sleek car, and it also has available quattro® all-wheel drive, which increases grip and agility. Every Audi is unique too, as the quattro® system is modified to fit each specific model. The quattro® system on the sedans is different than the SUV setup.

When driving the A4, the variable torque split between front and rear wheels delivers power where it's needed. More traction will go to the wheels with the most grip.

Chevy Equinox

The Chevy Equinox is a family-friendly vehicle with plenty of cargo space for a weekend adventure with the family. The Switchable All-Wheel Drive system on LS, LT, and Premier, trims gives you better traction on slippery roadways.

Switchable AWD can be left on year-round, because the rear wheels will only engage when the system picks up on reduced traction. When in front-wheel drive, the all-wheel-drive components will deactivate, ensuring greater fuel economy and overall vehicle efficiency.
