Acura Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ Overview
Take a look and you’ll quickly see there are a variety of Acura vehicles equipped with Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ across the model lineup. SH-AWD® technology provides seamless power transitions and supreme agility in adverse weather conditions or added performance on dry pavement. Perfected over several decades using track-tested engineering concepts, today’s SH-AWD® delivers uncompromising performance and handling across the entire Acura model lineup. Below, you’ll find a complete breakdown of how this technology works along with its availability by model. Let’s get started!
Benefits of Acura SH-AWD®
This precision technology does more than enhance traction. It also continuously monitors your vehicle’s direction and engine input to maximize performance and control. By continuously directing engine power to match weight distribution, this sophisticated system provides smooth power transitions and enhanced agility. Because drive wheels only receive power as necessary based on road conditions, SH-AWD® maximizes fuel efficiency. It also uses torque-vectoring technology that provides power where you need it the most, improving both stability and control.
