Front-Wheel Drive vs. Rear-Wheel Drive: Which is Right for You?

Here at Lithia Kia of Anchorage we want you to know your options when selecting your next vehicle. When it comes to front-wheel drive vs. rear-wheel drive, the best choice for you depends on your driving style and the road conditions you mostly travel.

Front-wheel drive vehicles are less expensive to build. They weigh less which means better fuel economy. The drivetrain is easier to install and fewer parts are required. FWD vehicles offer better traction, particularly in inclement weather conditions.

Rear-wheel drive vehicles are rugged and withstand potholes and minor incidents well, particularly with a good axle design. RWD vehicles distribute the weight of their drivetrains evenly from front to back. Most race cars and sports cars are RWD.
