HALDEX 4MOTION PDF

The Haldex clutch is activated when the vehicle senses the front wheels spinning. The Passat is available with three Longitudinally mounted engines: A 1. A Torsen differential is a full time limited-slip center diff. The Torsen differential is prominently mechanical, and is always active.

We are all created equally, some of us more equal than others, as the saying goes. Those names are merely the names chosen by each brand to represent their AWD drivetrains. So before we confuse the matter any further, what is Haldex? What is Haldex? Haldex Traction is a product of Swedish company HaldexAB, now owned by BorgWarner, that has specialised in manufacturing all-wheel drive systems derived from front-wheel drive setups for many years now.

Haldex 4WD typically takes a front-wheel drive platform, such as the VW Golf, Audi A3, or Mercedes-Benz A Class, and converts the FWD system into all-wheel drive, normally through the use of electronic sensors and differentials to redirect power to the rear wheels. AWD systems refer to drivetrains in which all 4 wheels are permanently driven.

For that reason, Haldex is not all-wheel drive, but is instead four-wheel drive 4WD. When wheel-slippage is detected, the Haldex computer systems redirect torque to the rear wheels to compensate for the loss of traction at the front.

Upon launching a Haldex-equipped vehicle, power will generally be directed rear-wards for additional grip, however under regular driving circumstances, Haldex equipped vehicles will operate as front-wheel drive only.

Haldex systems can also be equipped to almost any front-wheel drive vehicle, and as such are popular with many manufacturers as FWD is the standard drive system for many a company. As with any system, there are both positives and negatives to the Haldex AWD system. As Haldex is primarily front-wheel drive, under heavy loads, Haldex equipped vehicles have a tendency to understeer massively, as the computers are often too slow to apportion torque to the rear axle, and as the default torque distribution remains front-wheel orientated.

The most recent generation of Haldex AWD has gone some way into reducing understeer, although this largely comes down to the final tuning by the manufacturers that use the system. Haldex will never be able to substitute for a properly engineered permanent AWD system.

Whilst Haldex provides a financially viable alternative to building a genuine AWD system, it can not and will not be able to perform the same way, as it will always default to being a front-wheel drive system. However, Haldex proves to be a clever system nonetheless. It responds in a manner that flatters the driver and enables them to often recover from tricky scenarios without much fuss — although this is almost entirely thanks to the computer systems behind the scenes — whereas genuine AWD systems require an extremely high level of driver skill to handle and control the vehicle on or beyond the limit.

As such, Haldex is a safe alternative to permanent AWD for the everyday driver. Despite Haldex being a front-drive based AWD system, there are some exceptions to this. If one does enough digging, you would find that both the Bugatti Veyron and Lamborghini Avantador use Haldex, yet both are classified as having permanent all-wheel drive. Instead, these vehicles utilise Haldex-based electronic locking differentials to distribute and apportion torque between all 4 wheels — however all wheels are permanently driven under regular circumstances.

On a day to day basis, all all-wheel drive systems may be viewed as equal to one another, but when the going gets tough, permanent all-wheel drive systems such as quattro and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive really are more equal than others.

It specializes in the development and manufacture of intelligent all-wheel drive AWD systems. Since invention of Gen I in , the company produced several generations of products licensed to and customized for some major automotive brands, that in turn have marketed Haldex Traction AWD under different names. This system attempts to engage the rear wheels when the front wheels start to slip. The second generation of Haldex coupling is an electronically controlled permanent 4x4 system with a Haldex differential calculating how much drive should be directed to the rear wheels. With enhanced capabilities, it is aimed at providing a more immediate off-road response.
