Honda All-Wheel Drive

 

Equipped Models and Technology

Honda AWD vehicles work differently than other makes with standard all-wheel drive systems. The latter is a purely mechanical system, while Honda AWD cars employ advanced technologies to improve traction and performance on Waterbury-area roads. In this guide from the experts at Honda of Watertown, you’ll learn how Honda AWD sedans and SUVs work and which models can be equipped with it.

How Do Honda AWD Vehicles Work?

Honda Real Time AWD™ with Intelligent Control System takes a front-wheel-drive vehicle and adds a rear differential. When driving a Honda AWD car in less than ideal road or weather conditions around Southbury, it can detect when it’s losing traction and will automatically engage the rear differential with a multi-plate clutch system. By engaging the rear wheels the vehicle will be operating with AWD. A traditional AWD system will often experience a lag before it fully engages. The Honda Real Time AWD™ and Intelligent Control System makes the transition from 2WD to AWD virtually instantaneous. This is done through an electric motor on your Honda AWD sedan’s transmission which smoothly and seamlessly engages the rear wheels. Most drivers may not even notice that the shift to AWD has even happened. The Honda Real Time AWD™ with Intelligent Control System disengages just as quickly and effortlessly. This immediate response provides you with better control while minimizing the energy required to drive your Honda AWD vehicle. The Honda Real Time AWD system is more efficient than other vehicles with a mechanical AWD system and can add a new level of confidence to your Watertown-area commute.
