Front-Wheel and Rear-Wheel Drive Defined

We help car buyers fully understand automobiles before making a buying decision. Today, we explain and compare front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive.

In a front-wheel drive car, you find a transmission that pulls the vehicle by transferring the engine's horsepower to the front wheels. Meanwhile, in a rear-wheel drive auto, you have a setup that transmits the engine's force to rear wheels, which push the vehicle. Car makers love to use the front-wheel drive in their entry-level cars because it saves them money. Auto buyers who pay more for rear-wheel drive models typically gain performance and transmission longevity. Choose a front-wheel-drive car to save on gas and gain reliable wet-road traction. Opt for a rear-wheel model if you love to feel the road.

To truly evaluate these transmission types, you should test drive them at Honda World. We are conveniently located in Conway, and we can answer any car question.
