What is the Difference Between a Front-Wheel and Rear-Wheel Drive Vehicle?

When you’re trying to decide between a front-wheel-drive (FWD) and a rear-wheel-drive (RWD) vehicle, it’s recommended to take a few things into consideration to determine which is the better choice for your circumstances. The number of miles you plan to drive, general driving conditions, and what you expect from your vehicle are basic factors.

A FWD, for instance, offers economy. It’s a simpler and lighter design than the RWD, so you save on its initial cost as well as in fuel-economy. The other consideration that makes a FWD a strong contender is its ability to navigate in the rain and snow. RWD, on the other hand, provides much better performance and handling in general between the two. Its suspension is also more solid than a FWD.
