Front-Wheel-Drive and Rear-Wheel-Drive Explained

What type of driver are you? Are you the type to always be in a hurry and take chances driving over uneven surfaces at a fast rate? How do you drive in inclement weather? These are good questions to ask, because they may determine what type of wheel drive you should get in your next vehicle.

Front-wheel-drive (FWD) cars are very good to drive in the rain and snow because they offer good traction, due to the front wheels pulling the vehicle. FWD drives are also less expensive to make and thus are less expensive to purchase. A rear-wheel-drive (RWD) vehicle does not have good traction, but it does have a rugged build that offers a good balance. An RWD can take abuse suffered when hitting small objects in its path.
