The Differences Between FWD and RWD Vehicles

Should you get a front-wheel drive (FWD) or a rear-wheel drive (RWD) vehicle? To come to an informed decision, you should know the main advantages and disadvantages of each option.

Because the weight of the engine and transmission is directly above the drive wheels, FWD cars tend to get better traction on slick and dry roads. This design also makes the initial purchase cost lower because it makes them cheaper to manufacture. Unfortunately, this design also has many moving parts, which may increase maintenance costs.

What RWD cars lack in traction, they make up for in better handling. The simple yet strong design is also more durable than the more intricate web of moving parts that make up a FWD system.
