When you’re in the market for a new car, choosing the drivetrain that suits your driving needs best is one of the most important choices. That being said, you may have a few questions. What’s the difference between four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive? What advantages does a front-wheel drive car offer? Luckily for you, we don’t just offer a great selection of new and used Honda vehicles here at Executive Honda. We can also answer all of your burning questions.


One of the most common drivetrains that you’ll find here on our lot is front-wheel drive. This system can be found in sedans, coupes, SUVs, and even in trucks like the 2017 Honda Ridgeline. Some pickup trucks offer rear-wheel drive, but buying a front-wheel drive truck means that you end up with a better interior and even more cargo space. The components used to build the front-wheel drive system take up less space than the parts used to build a rear-wheel drive one.


When you drive off of our lot in a front-wheel drive Honda Accord or a Honda CR-V, you’ll discover that, compared to a rear-wheel drive car, it offers better traction during Connecticut’s harsh winter weather. That’s not the only option available for the 2017 Honda CR-V though. Like the Honda Ridgeline, you can also choose to equip your new vehicle with an all-wheel drive system. This drivetrain is “always on,” unlike a four-wheel drive system which needs to be turned on by the driver. That means that an all-wheel drive model from our dealership is ready to take on tough road conditions or harsh weather, even when it takes you by surprise.
