I'm patiently waiting for my car (1.4S) to be delivered - in the meantime a question about the 4-wheel drive system. Are there restrictions on when it can be used in the other than auto settings (i.e. snow, sport and lock)? I have a Jimny with 'real' Very Happy (i.e. part-time) 4-wheel drive but because it lacks a 'front-to-back differential' the 4-wheel drive can only be used on slippery surfaces or else driveline windup occurs with expensive results. I'm guessing that AllGrip does not have such restrictions and that the only downside to using the non-auto settings inappropriately is increased fuel consumption?

Just collected my car so now I can reply to my own question for the benefit of anyone else! There are no real restrictions on using the AllGrip but you will get higher tyre wear and fuel consumption if it's used inappropriately.

Try using the Sport Mode; that will certainly give you tyre wear !! Auto setting should give you all the traction you will need, but guess snow mode is a better option when the going gets tuff. Lock is speed restricted and I think around 45 kph.; only advisable to use it as an alternative of getting a tow.

That is a great little video.
Even I now understand how the system works.

Hello everyone.
Here is some real tested info about All Grip:
4-wheel drive system is only a part of full All Grip system.
In fact, all modes (except Lock) works very similar. They are all proactive and they are all from 100:0 to 50:50.
Snow mode is a little bit stronger than Auto (about 1.25), it doesn't give us permanent 4x4, unfortunately there is a lot of 2WD driving.
Lock is also active (not constant 50:50), but here we have at least 75:25 before we even start moving. Full lock (50:50) is only in case of slippage, but it works the same in every mode.
No matter what mode we choose, we always start by 4x4 - every gas pressure engages back wheels.
While driving straight with stable speed, there is always 2WD (except Lock, below 60 km/h).

Like the detailed info about the AllGrip system. Thanks DS.

I have been finding that i get slightly better average fuel consumption on the trip computer when i engage sport mode, which surprised me a bit... ?

The car always defaults to Auto mode when i recycle the Ignition switch tho.

My car still has less than 3000 miles on the clock tho so still early days.
