How Does Honda AWD Work?

2020 Honda HR-V

If you’re looking for a new Honda vehicle in Bartlett, you’ve doubtless come across some Honda All-Wheel Drive models. Honda AWD is a unique system that differs from other forms of all-wheel drive to adjust quickly and add more traction on Arlington roads. Wolfchase Honda answers the question, “How does Honda AWD work,” and looks at Honda All-Wheel Drive models below!

Honda Real-Time AWD™ with Intelligent Control System

So, how does Honda AWD work? Many forms of all-wheel drive use the rear wheels to improve traction. Honda AWD actually begins from a FWD vehicle, adding a rear differential and a multi-plate clutch system. This results in a few improvements on Memphis streets:

  • The rear differential allows the rear wheels to engage almost instantaneously. You’ll experience a lag in some all-wheel drive systems you don’t get on Honda All-Wheel Drive.
  • The Intelligent Control System also disengages Honda All-Wheel Drive when it’s needed, just as smoothly as it engages the rear wheels.

Another type of Honda AWD is the Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VMT4) AWD. This system scans all of your wheels and distributes torque according to which needs it. Like Honda Real-Time AWD™, this system is designed to manage your traction while keeping transitions as smooth as possible.
