Choosing Between Rear-Wheel and Front-Wheel Drive Vehicles

At Mercedes-Benz of Walnut Creek, we understand that there are many performance differences between rear wheel drive (RWD) and front wheel drive (FWD) cars. We can help you choose the right type of vehicle for your driving needs by answering any of your questions and sharing our knowledge with you.

RWD cars tend to be more durable in rough driving conditions. Most high performance cars are also RWD since the steering and traction are taken care of by different sets of wheels. On the other hand, FWD cars perform far more reliably in slick conditions since all of the weight of the engine and transmission is over the front wheels. The simpler design of FWD also leads to less expensive cars.

There are many aspects to consider when choosing between cars. Pay our dealership a visit today and learn more about your options.
