How Does Honda AWD Work?

2021 Honda CR-V

A standard all-wheel-drive system engages the rear wheels to improve traction and performance on Middletown roads. The Honda AWD offers a different experience due to extraordinary engineering.

How Does Honda AWD Work to Provide More Control?

So, how does Honda AWD work and what makes it superior to other AWD systems or 4WD systems? Honda Real Time AWD™ with Intelligent Control System begins with a front-wheel-drive vehicle and then adds a rear differential. That means if you encounter a rough spot on roads around Monroe and your Honda senses that it’s losing traction, this system engages the rear differential with a multi-plate clutch system. Once the rear wheels are engaged, the Honda is operating with AWD.

When a traditional AWD system is engaged, Warwick drivers usually notice a lag before it kicks into operation. But with Honda Real Time AWD™ and Intelligent Control System, the transition is instantaneous. If your rear wheels are needed, an electric motor on your vehicle’s transmission will seamlessly engage them. The process is so fast and smooth that you probably won’t even notice what transpired. 

When it comes time for your Honda Real Time AWD™ with Intelligent Control System to disengage, it does it just as effortlessly. The system’s fast response not only provides you with enhanced control but minimizes the effort required to drive your Honda.
