Honda AWD Guide

2020 Honda HR-V Touring

All-wheel drive enhances traction and control in all kinds of weather and road conditions, adding safety and confidence to any drive in the Culver City area. The new Honda lineup features several models that can be equipped with the Honda Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™. Honda Real Time AWD works differently than conventional all-wheel drive to provide superior performance on or off the road. Learn all about how the Honda AWD system works and which Honda models are available with it, AND then schedule a test drive today at Airport Marina Honda in Los Angeles.

How Does Honda AWD Work?

The Honda Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ senses when the wheels are losing traction and engages the rear differential with a multi-plate clutch system to seamlessly transition from two-wheel drive to all-wheel drive. Conventional all-wheel drive uses a mechanical system to make the transition from 2-wheel drive to all-wheel drive, so you will often experience a lag before all four wheels are engaged. With Honda Real Time AWD, the transition is so quick and smooth that most drivers won’t notice any hesitation whatsoever. The system also disengages just as effortlessly. This quick response not only provides for better control, but it also minimizes the energy needed to drive your Honda, which helps to save gas when driving around Torrance.

What Honda Models Have AWD? 

Wondering which Honda AWD models are available? You can choose from the following:

Note that the Passport, Pilot, and Ridgeline feature the Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ All-Wheel Drive (AWD) System rather than Honda Real Time AWD. Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ senses how much torque is needed for each wheel axle and continuously adjusts distribution to provide traction to the wheels that need it most.
