AWD or all-wheel drive is an appealing facility in your vehicle. With all-wheel drive, all the four-wheel experience torque and there is more grip on snowy roads, thus preventing the car to slip away. It can also be used in muddy areas.
You must be wondering which one is better, front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, or all-wheel drive.

So if you are living in snowy areas or areas that are super slippery, you should opt for this feature.
