Automatic. No driver controls. When a wheel speed sensor detects a wheel turning at an rpm that it shouldn't be for the speed the car is going, it will apply more power to it or brake, whatever is applicable

FordNut is correct. On most AWD cars the 4 wheel drive is automatic and the computer controls it. My wife drives an AWD Infiniti and loves it. AWD is great in the snow.

I have a 2008 mkx AWD. I'm truly disappointed with the awd, which was one of the main reasons I bought it. I couldn't drive it up my driveway with sleet/ice. Only the front wheel will spin. But when on level pavement all 4 spins. My wife's beaten old subraru outback has no such problems.
