If you were refering about diesel conty, you are absolutely right. Its very sluggish and there is no way it could catch up with other cars..

I was checking out the thread http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/suvs-m...2-lac-inr.html (Which is the best diesel 4WD (Not AWD) SUV under 22 lac INR?)
and was curious to know the difference between 4WD and AWD.

In another thread 4WD V/s 2WD, veyron1 gave a brief explanation which threw some light. Wanting to get some more information, I came across this link which I felt gives a more detailed explanation to a layman like me.

Apart from the obvious difference that in an AWD the power to the drive system of the 4 wheels is on all the time, while in a 4WD it can be switched on and off, there are other important differences which is explained in relatively simple terms with the advantages and disadvantages of both.
