LEXUS ALL-WHEEL DRIVE BENEFITS

Driving a Lexus all-wheel drive model comes with plenty of benefits. Each of the Lexus AWD models offers a plethora of interior technology features, performance features, and more for an enhanced El Cajon commute. One of these features detects wheel slips and automatically sends power to two or four wheels as needed. The distribution ratio can range from 50/50 all the way to 30/70 if needed. These Lexus all-wheel drive models come built with top-notch engineering to allow drivers to commute with confidence no matter the road conditions. Lexus AWD models also come with the highly-regarded Cornering Control to correct oversteer and understeer.
