What is the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™?

The HR-V LX AWD SUV comes equipped with the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™, which adds a rear differential to vehicles with front-wheel drive. When traction is lost, a multi-plate clutch system engages the rear differential to help regain control. Using this system, torque is allocated to all four wheels, instead of just two. What’s more, the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ takes care of the lag associated with traditional all-wheel drive systems when the rear wheels are engaged. Unlike most all-wheel drive systems that use mechanical means, this feature uses an electric motor on the transmission to deliver power.

Why Choose an AWD Honda HR-V?

AWD vehicles provide added grip and traction for drivers from Chicago and beyond. Whether you’re an outdoor adventurer who likes to head off the beaten path or someone who just wants to stay safe during a snowy commute, AWD can deliver the added control you need.
