Discover Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive at Kentucky Acura Dealers

  Acura does AWD in a way unlike other automakers with Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD). Most all-wheel drive systems are made to give a vehicle an all-weather advantage. SH-AWD does that, but it’s also designed to bring that same level of performance to dry road handling. Here’s how “Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive” works:

  • SH-AWD seamlessly transitions power to and from the vehicle’s wheels to maximize agility.
  • It increases stability and reduces understeer.
  • Up to 90% of engine power can be sent to the front wheels to conserve fuel while cruising.
  • As much as 45% of engine power and 70% of effective torque can be sent to the rear wheels.
