Self Study Program 861803 – Tiguan Haldex All-Wheel Drive

VAG SSP 861803. Volkswagen has used a Haldex clutch for the 4MOTION all-wheel drive since 1998. A new generation of the all-wheel drive clutch is now used by Volkswagen for the first time in the Tiguan.

The new all-wheel drive clutch is controlled electronically. It allows torque to be transmitted to the drive wheels that have traction regardless of slip at other wheels. The distribution of the drive forces to the axles is variable and depends on the driving conditions. The new all-wheel drive clutch in 4MOTION responds rapidly to any driving situation and maintains the best possible traction at all times.
