Compare FWD and RWD Vehicles

One of the decisions that you'll need to weigh when buying a new car is whether you'll prefer a front-wheel-drive vs rear-wheel-drive vehicle. Our team at DCH Gardena Honda wants to help you make an informed decision.

Power from the engine is sent to the solid rear axle in rear-wheel-drive cars. Rear-wheel-drive cars tend to have better handling. The main drawback of rear-wheel-drive is traction, especially in rain or snow. In front wheel drive, power is sent to the front wheels. The weight of the engine over the front wheels gives front-wheel-drive cars better traction. Because the front tires have two jobs, steering and propelling the car, front-wheel-drive cars do not handle as well as rear-wheel-drive cars.

If you will be driving in inclement weather conditions, front-wheel-drive may be a better choice. If handling is most important to you, rear-wheel-drive might be a better option. Our Honda sales team can help you make a personalized choice for your new car.
