Lexus vehicles are ready for the road thanks to available All-Wheel Drive (AWD) and Four-Wheel Drive (4WD) systems that are specially designed for luxury driving. With enough power to tackle Ontario ice and snow, leading Lexus technology will make your drive through winter conditions and off-road adventures much easier.
 
While AWD and 4WD both bring superior performance and control to your vehicle on the road, the two systems work in different ways. Lexus all-wheel-drive divides power between the two axles, then adjusts when low traction is detected to provide more power to the axle with the most grip. The Lexus four-wheel-drive system sends power to all four wheels at all times. If any wheel slips, brake force is applied to the slipping wheel and driving force is sent to the wheels with grip.

Lexus All-Wheel Drive (AWD)

Lexus AWD offers innovative driving technology that immediately responds to your current road conditions. If the AWD system detects slippage or instability, your vehicle’s power is redirected to either two or four wheels to optimize traction on a variety of road surfaces.
 
Safety is enhanced thanks to the Lexus Cornering Control Function, which comes included with the AWD system. Turn corners with precision and smoothness without fear of low traction on ice and snow. Your vehicle’s front and rear driving force automatically adjust to compensate for understeering or oversteering. However, wheels only receive the extra power when necessary, so you can still expect high fuel efficiency in the Lexus AWD system.
