Hi guys new member / owner. Just bought a 2012 2.2 cdti. 160ps. How can I tell if it's Awd.
Are they all FWD until traction is lost?
Thanks.
Jonathan.

There is also a warning light on the instrument cluster which illuminates on startup. It should extinguish shortly after. The OM shows the icon.

It has been advertised as 4x4. And it has the icon your talkingvabout how ever it does not illuminate when ignition is turned on. I've looked under the car and can't see a rear diff.

If it has no rear diff some one must have stuck a 4x4 badge on .it can not be a awd with out rear diff take it back there is a price difference between the front wheel and awd version

Have a look at log book should state AWD all wheel drive or FWD front wheel drive like it shows SS for stop start
But then it may have started as a AWD but the rear transfer box has been removed as there has been a lot of rear transfer boxes breaking up and the cost is thousands to get replaced and if this is the case then take it back as it's been sold to you advertised wrongly Edited by: Bigjohnsparky

BJS is correct V5 will state if it is 4x4 s/s.If you bought it from a dealer & V5 states 4x4take it back & get a discount or get them to reinstate the 4x4 system. Antara fwd & 4x4 are generally priced different with 4x4 being dearer. Take a copy of advert incase you need to involve trading standards.

Just put my details into dvla site as I've not got full V5.
Came back with a 2 axle rigid body. Presuming that means 2 moving axles on a vehicle with 4 wheels and no soft roof?
E.g. not AWD??
