Why Front-Wheel Drive Vehicles are Now More Common

It used to be that rear-wheel drive was the only option when it came to buying a new car. With advances in manufacturing, front-wheel drive technology was developed. Front-wheel drive vehicles are both powered and steered by the front wheels, giving the driver better control in slippery conditions.

While rear-wheel drive is still used in SUVs and expensive luxury vehicles, front-wheel drive has become more common because it is generally safer and more affordable. The cost of manufacturing a front-wheel drive vehicle is lower, and this results in savings for the consumer.

It's important to know if your vehicle is front or rear-wheel drive as this will make a difference in how your car handles on the road.
