    Tucson " all wheel drive ", the transfer case is locked to 4WD always so wala kang switch or shift lever na iintindihin pa. This transfer power to the 4 wheels of the car evenly unless there is some slippage detected.
    Sorento 4WD is different kasi it gives you option to select 3 settings. 2WD which is the widely used setting sa city driving para matipid ang fuel consumption. 4WD "Hi" is when the road is slippery or you're going up a hilly road for more traction ika nga. This setting you can select even when you are running 80km/hr without any problems.And then 4WD "Lo" which is for severe off-roading. Need to stop the car to engage this setting.
    Tucson I believe can be taken for some off-roading but on limited extent. Sorento on the other hand has been tested on some severe off-roading condition and seems to perform nicely I've read. Some sites will show you some insights and pictures regarding Sorento off-roading.

    as far as i know the Tucson CRDi model is a 4wd, but the 4wd system installed automatically activates...... meaning if the vehicle is at constant vehicle speed it is in the 2wd state but it changes the torque distribution to rear wheels in the 4wd state according to the driving state. Regarding the Lock 4wd there is a button located on the left to activate it but it is used only for severe and slow terrain......

    and i have heared that they have the tucson Gasoline with a 2.0 engine.... i think its much cheaper.......

    Tucson is all wheel drive ( transfer case always driving the 4 wheels ika nga ) Wala syang switch that you can change it to 2WD.

    a ok. so in a sense, "always 4WD" ang tucson tama ba? i've read in some forum na mas magastos in terms of fuel consumption pag parating naka-4WD mode ang SUV kahit di nman kelangan. ang ibig sabihin ba nito e olats sa fuel consumption ang tucson kasi nga "always 4WD" ito?

    oops, this answers the questions i posted above na pala so my understanding now is that the tucson is normally on "4WD-on-demand" mode under normal driving conditions. but when driven on severe and slow terrain, the lock 4WD can be used to turn the tucson into an "always 4WD" vehicle. is my conclusion correct? correct me if i'm wrong

    Tucson is normally front wheel drive until wheel sensors detect slip and start sending power to the rear axle (sort of like how the CR-V system works).

    In 'LOCK', the Tucson will send power to the rear wheels whether or not there is slip. However, gearing will still be the same as there is no 4L setting.

    true... i think the Tucson goes head to head with the Kia's Sportage not the Sorento.

    the Tucson is unit body, has AWD and smaller while the Sorento is a midsizer has 4WD and body on frame.

    a ok.. so in a sense fuel efficient ang Tucson dahil di sya lagi naka-4WD mode, only when the situation calls for some 4WD driving.. is this correct?

    so para saan yung "Lock 4WD?" when should this be used?
