Do you know that cars with Front Wheel Drive are the most popular and powerful cars/ in India. In the Front Wheel Drive (FWD) mode the front wheels take responsibility for propelling as well as steering the car. So, if a car with front wheel drive gets stuck in a corner, the driver exerts power on its anterior wheels. The front pair of wheels thus does a dual job – produce centripetal force for keeping vehicle in line and accelerating along its path of motion. Usually, the friction offered by path plays a key role in offering both centripetal force and acceleration and helps in keeping the vehicle under control. But when the power received by front wheels is more than enough, friction from road might not be enough for keeping vehicle in control; this may lead to the condition of understeering. However, in India most front wheel drive cars are blessed with a power output of more than 250hp, therefore, they are safe in this respect. That is the reason why Indians mostly prefer FWD mode and there is a long range of products available in this genre.
