You likely know that a standard all-wheel-drive system engages the rear wheels using mechanical means to improve traction and performance. The Honda AWD provides a bit of a different experience for Costa Mesa drivers in need of extra traction. How does Honda AWD work? Exactly, what is Honda AWD? Learn more about Honda AWD, and which models you can find it on below.

 

 

How Does Honda AWD Work?

Honda Real Time AWD™ with Intelligent Control System begins with a front-wheel-drive vehicle and adds a rear differential. If you drive through a rough patch on Irvine roads, and your Honda senses that it’s losing traction, the system will engage the rear differential with a multi-plate clutch system. The process of engaging the rear wheels shifts the vehicle into operating with AWD.

When a traditional AWD system is engaging it can have a lag before it kicks into operation. The Honda Real Time AWD™ and Intelligent Control System, aims to make the transition virtually instantaneous. If your rear wheels are required, an electric motor on the transmission will seamlessly engage them. The process is so quick and smooth, you likely won’t even notice it has happened.

What is the Honda AWD? Well it’s a dynamic system to keep you safe on Huntington Beach roads. When it comes time to disengage, it does so just as quickly and effortlessly. The fast response means you’ll have better control and the energy required to drive your Honda is minimized. The Honda Real Time AWD system is more efficient than other vehicles with a mechanical AWD system.
