In RWD vehicles, power is transferred to the two back wheels. This means that the rear wheels drive the vehicle, and the front wheels steer the vehicle.
- Better handling in dry conditions and balance
- Least maintenance cost of all drivetrains
- Better acceleration and quicker take off
- Steering the vehicle and towing large loads are easier
- Less legroom space due to transmission tunnel and driveshaft
- More enjoyable to drive because maneuvering can be smooth and predictable
- Added weight at the back helps propel the vehicle forward
- Doesn't operate as well on slippery conditions, but with traction control technology this disadvantage is reduced
- Can accommodate larger engines, hence higher performance can be achieved.
