Honda AWD Guide

honda models

Choosing a vehicle that is equipped with all-wheel drive enhances traction and control on slick or icy roads in the Asheville area. Fortunately, there are several options in the new Honda lineup that are available with the Honda Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™. This innovative AWD system works differently than conventional all-wheel drive to provide superior performance, on or off the road. Learn more about how the Honda AWD system works and which Honda models are available with all-wheel drive in this guide from Apple Tree Honda.

How Does Honda AWD Work?

The Honda Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ adds a rear differential to a front-wheel-drive vehicle. This innovative system can sense when the wheels are losing traction, and will engage the rear differential with a multi-plate clutch system to seamlessly transition from two-wheel drive to all-wheel drive.

With a standard AWD system, drivers will notice a short lag before all wheels are engaged. The Honda Real Time AWD and Intelligent Control System™ makes the transition from 2WD to AWD smooth, effortless, and virtually instantaneous. Most Fletcher drivers won’t even notice that the transition has occurred.

The Honda Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ disengages just as smoothly as it engages. This quick response provides %%target-city_3%% drivers with better control, while minimizing the energy needed to drive your Honda. You’ll get increased traction and control on wet or icy roads, and enjoy improved efficiency at the same time.

What Honda Models Have AWD? 

The Honda Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ promises confidence and improves your safety when driving in challenging road and weather conditions. Hendersonville drivers can choose from the following Honda vehicles that are available with all-wheel drive:
