What are the advantages of the front-wheel drive?

There are many different types of drive patterns in vehicles today. There are front-wheel drives, rear-wheel drives, four-wheel drives, all-wheel drives, and intelligent four-wheel drives. What it boils down to is the preference of the driver and the environment in which they drive.

The front-wheel-drive has two distinct advantages over the other drive units. First, in front-wheel drive vehicles, the weight of the vehicle is centered in the front. The act of steering with most of the vehicle weight over the steering wheels creates greater traction. So, in bad weather conditions like snow, ice, rain, and sand, the vehicle gets more traction under its steering wheels. The other main advantage is the extra room inside the cabin. Without the driveshaft traveling the length of the car, there is a lot more leg room.
