Honda AWD System Explained

All-wheel drive can improve traction and control on White Plains-area roads, which can be especially helpful during the winter months. While a standard all-wheel-drive system engages the rear wheels using mechanical means, the Honda AWD offers a different approach. Learn more about how Honda AWD works and which models you can find it on in this guide from Honda of New Rochelle.

What Are the Benefits of Driving a Vehicle with AWD?

All-wheel drive can be an extremely useful feature when driving in challenging road or weather conditions. Some of the advantages of AWD include:

  • Improved Traction – Since all four wheels are engaged, even if one or two of the wheels lose traction on a wet or slippery road, you’ll still have control over the vehicle.
  • Improved Performance and Handling – With all four wheels being driven by the engine, you’ll enjoy faster acceleration, as well as better steering.
  • Off-Road Capability – AWD provides the traction and control needed to drive on dirt, mud, gravel, and uneven terrain.

How Does Honda AWD Work?

Honda Real Time AWD™ with Intelligent Control System can detect when your vehicle is losing traction and will activate the rear differential via a multi-plate clutch system so that all wheels are engaged. Unlike a traditional AWD system, which can experience a lag before it kicks into action, the Honda Real Time AWD™ with Intelligent Control System provides a virtually instantaneous transition from 2WD to AWD. Most drivers won’t even notice when their Honda switches to AWD, it’s that quick and smooth!

The Honda Real Time AWD™ with Intelligent Control System also disengages just as effortlessly. This quick response provides better control while minimizing the energy required to drive your Honda. Drivers from the Bronx and beyond will find that the Honda Real Time AWD System is more efficient than a conventional mechanical AWD system.
