All-wheel drive (AWD)

A vehicle fitted with AWD must be recovered with either ALL wheels on the ground or ALL wheels off the ground. See Vehicle recovery.

The AWD system, fitted to certain front-wheel drive variants, will automatically provide driving torque to the rear wheels when road conditions become slippery with rain, snow or ice etc.

If the AWD indicator illuminates continuously while driving, this indicates a malfunction. Have the system checked by a properly trained technician.
