Benefits of Honda AWD

Before we dive into how the advanced Honda AWD system works, let’s take a look at some of the benefits of having a vehicle that’s equipped with AWD. Some of the benefits of Honda AWD include:

  • Thanks to two differentials at the front and rear axles, power is directed to all four wheels.
  • You get better traction control on slippery and rougher Hubbard roads.
  • AWD provides better handling when hauling a trailer or other supplies behind you.

These are just some of the ways you can drive a little easier with Honda AWD wherever you go. Now, let’s take a look at how the Honda AWD system works.

Honda AWD: How it Works

So, how does Honda AWD work? Every Honda AWD vehicle is equipped with Honda Real-Time AWD™ with Intelligent Control System, starting with a front-wheel drive (FWD) vehicle and adds a rear differential. If your Honda vehicle senses a rough patch on the Mercer roads and you begin to lose traction, the system will engage the rear differential with a multi-plate clutch system. Now that the rear wheels are engaged, the vehicle is using AWD.

When necessary, an electric motor on the vehicle’s transmission will silently engage the rear wheels. The overall Honda AWD process is seemingly effortless. This fast response allows you to have more control and requires less energy to drive your vehicle.
