Initially, the model was offered only with front-wheel drive and it is now offered in the company of a four-wheel drive with electronically controlled center differential. The system works only with the loss of grip on the front, proposes to stabilize the vehicle on a slippery surface in situations with a poor adhesion. Thanks to this function available on many other cars with all-wheel drive disengaged, the transmission friction are reduced, providing better fuel consumption and a lower level of CO2 emissions. Those from Fiat say that their system is more accurate than a normal system with viscous-coupling or just a Torsen differential one.
