All Wheel Drive (AWD) has become an increasingly popular option, and for many it is the deciding factor in their choice of car. From AWD hatchbacks and AWD saloons, to AWD SUVs and AWD sports cars, the range of vehicles that offer it is vast. But what is AWD, and why is it useful?


Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD) ensures that every one of our AWD cars retains Jaguar’s dynamic rear wheel drive feel for a more enjoyable driving experience.  

The system constantly works to find the optimum balance of traction and performance, seamlessly transferring the required torque to where it’s needed.


While other AWD systems become active only after the car loses traction, Jaguar’s AWD with IDD is predictive. If it calculates that grip will imminently be lost, it pre-emptively shifts torque to the wheels that have better traction to maintain control and composure before it happens.


Beyond just improving all-weather driving on lower traction surfaces, Jaguar’s AWD systems enhance driving performance. Whether you’re on an open country road, or out on the track, you’ll feel the benefits of Jaguar’s AWD through every corner.
