Toyota Goes All-In on All-Wheel Drive

Traction Control Off
To properly experience operation of the all-wheel-drive system on its own, we drove the same course with the stability control turned off. As expected, more skill was required to keep the vehicles on track since both Camry and Avalon tended to understeer — a common occurrence in slick conditions. Adding power eventually put the vehicles in the desired direction as the front wheels gained traction, but not before sliding to the edge of the course. That said, most owners of these all-wheel-drive vehicles will keep the traction and stability control systems on in snowy conditions.
