Honda All-Wheel Drive


Equipped Models and Technology

When you drive an AWD Honda, you have a vehicle that works differently than other makes with standard all-wheel drive systems. While others use a similar mechanical system to Honda Real Time™ AWD, 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 cars and SUVs like the Honda CR-V AWD work, and which models can be equipped with it.

How Do Honda AWD Vehicles Work?

The 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 poor road or weather conditions around Southbury, it can detect when wheels begin to lose traction and will automatically engage the rear differential with a multi-plate clutch system. A traditional all-wheel drive car will often experience a lag before it fully engages. The Honda Real Time AWD™ and Intelligent Control System make the transition from 2WD to AWD virtually instantaneous. This is done through an electric motor on your AWD Honda’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 all-wheel drive car. 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.

What Are the AWD Honda Vehicles?

Wondering what the AWD Honda and SUVs are? Every Honda SUV and truck is available with Honda Real Time AWD™. It’s easy to get a Honda CR-V AWD, which is one of the more popular vehicles in our lineup.
