Vehicles with all-wheel drive are ideal for dealing with the challenges of Quebec's weather. Climate change is one of the reasons why we have to drive more and more on chaotic, wet, icy and snowy roads. Increasingly, we have to drive in very difficult conditions.
If you are planning to change your vehicle soon, you should consider purchasing a pre-owned vehicle with all-wheel drive. Autoteck, the specialist in pre-owned vehicles in Quebec City, offers a wide range of vehicles, including the Subaru Crosstrek, the GMC Terrain and the Audi Q5.
The Subaru Crosstrek
Subaru cars have won countless rally championships not only because of their powerful BOXER engines, but also because of their proven reliability and their legendary symmetrical full-time all-wheel drive system.
The BOXER engine of the Crosstrek is perfectly aligned with the full-time all-wheel drive system, and this clever design allowed the engineers at Subaru to reduce the complexity of the system. This design also increases its durability and reduces maintenance costs.
Subaru's symmetrical full-time all-wheel drive system sends power to all 4 wheels of the Crosstrek. Even if one wheel isn't getting any traction due to an unstable surface, power is sent to all 4 wheels. This system makes it easy to stay in full control of the vehicle during the most difficult driving conditions.
The pre-owned Subaru Crosstrek AWD is powered by a 2.0 L, 4-cylinder BOXER engine with direct injection. This powertrain delivers 152 hp and 145 lb-ft of torque. This naturally aspirated engine is paired with a Lineartronic CVT transmission.
