Comparing Front-Wheel to Rear-Wheel Drive

Improved automotive knowledge leads to better auto-buying decisions, and our blog can help you. Today, we compare front-wheel and rear-wheel drive.

Wheels move cars, and in a front-wheel drive setup, the front wheels pull the car using horsepower provided by the vehicle's engine. In rear-wheel drive configurations, the car's back wheels receive the horsepower, creating a pushing effect. Car makers like to put front-wheel drive systems in their economy cars because they require fewer parts and cost less to install. Performance lovers appreciate rear-wheel drive's handling capabilities, but snow seekers love front-wheel drive's superior winter traction. If you need a reliable commuter's car and want to save on gas, then front-wheel drive likely suits you. To create heart-thumping memories of countryside tours, seriously consider a rear-wheel-drive model.

True new-car evaluation requires thorough test drives, and we offer a broad selection at Grieco Kia of Delray Beach.
