Honda All-Wheel Drive System

What Are the Advantages of Having All-Wheel Drive?

When your vehicle is equipped with an all-wheel drive system, power is sent do all four wheels via two differentials located at the front and rear axles. Since all four wheels receive power from the engine, they have the ability to adjust where power is sent if wheel slippage is detected. AWD is also especially useful for help in slippery conditions due to its ability to gain traction when you need it the most. Overall, you’ll experience advantages in handling across all types of road surface conditions and also while you’re towing.

Honda Intelligent Traction Management

Honda Intelligent All-Wheel Drive Systems

Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ (i-VTM4™) AWD System

A unique characteristic of this advanced system is its ability to sense the amount of torque required from each axle and then distributes the power accordingly. Once it’s determined how much traction each wheel needs, power is then sent to the wheels which are slipping.

Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™

Thanks to sensors on the rear axle, this groundbreaking system is able to detect a loss of traction on the back wheels. In an effort to maintain grip, it will then send power towards the rear wheels to prevent further traction loss. Although Real Time AWD may not be as dynamic as i-VTM4™, it remains an excellent feature for midsize SUVs and crossovers.
