Here’s Why The 2017 Toyota Corolla Gets Great Traction

April 24, 2017 Featured No Comments


At Schaumburg Toyota in Schaumburg, IL, we know buying a car is a big decision with many factors to be taken into account. That’s why our mission is to provide our customers with quality information, so each one can find the right car for their life. One of the topics that comes up time and again is the difference among drivetrains. Each one has its own benefits and characteristics you should know before signing on the bottom line.

If you’re looking for a new sedan like the 2017 Toyota Corolla, you’ll be dealing with FWD. This means the engine is providing power to the front wheels, thus providing increased traction. Because of this, FWD vehicles do great on wet roads. They also get better fuel economy and come with a lower sticker price.

On the contrary, a RWD vehicle has power supplied to the rear wheels. This makes it a great choice for towing or hauling a heavy load, but because the front of the vehicle is lighter, it doesn’t perform well on snowy roads. Superior handling makes RWD a popular choice among performance vehicles.

AWD/4WD are often mistaken as the same, which is basically true in theory, but there are a couple main differences. AWD, for starters, is always on and gets excellent traction on wet roads. 4WD, on the other hand, must be manually engaged by the driver and does better in off-road conditions. Both come with a higher sticker price, but it can be worth it for the right driver.

    Scheduled routine service for my vehicle on a Friday at 12:30 pm. Car was checked in promptly by my service advisor, Craig. I waited in the guest area until the service was completed (approximately 2 hrs). Had to resist going into the showroom to look at new vehicles -- not time to replace mine. I […]

    The Schaumburg dealership is the best...friendly staff, and very knowledgeable technicians. I have owned several Toyota's ( 2 Camry's and presently a Rav4 Limited) and have not had any major issues, I have been to this dealership for general maintenance and that is something to be said about Toyota's. My car is always ready within […]

    A "check engine" light caused me to come to Schaumburg Toyota for a time-critical diagnosis and repair. Service Advisor Bryan H. scheduled me, on the spot, in spite of the dealership having overflow from Elgin Toyota, whose mechanics were on strike. Technician Brian (team leader) pinpointed the defective part: a solenoid with the Charcoal Cannister. […]

    I have only had good experiences there. I would go back there for my next car in a minute. I would never buy from anyone else. Best service and experience i've ever had. Don't hesitate to make them your dealer. There's never any pressure and they lay it all out for you. THE BEST!!
