What is Acura SH-AWD®?

So what is Acura AWD and how does it work along Buda streets? The Acura SH-AWD® system, or Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™, delivers better control of your car no matter if you’re driving through harsh weather or you’re taking on your next off-road course. With Acura SH-AWD®, the weight of your vehicle is distributed more evenly than the standard FWD system found on many Acura models. Here are some other reasons you can benefit from the upgrade to Acura SH-AWD®:

  • Determines the power distribution between the front and rear wheels based on wheel speed, angle, and yaw rate
  • Improves fuel economy by sending up to 90% of power to the front wheels when cruising down a straight road
  • Shifts weight toward the rear wheels when accelerating, helping drivers gain more traction
  • Sends 70% of torque to the rear wheels and applies it exclusively to the outside wheel as weight is shifted when accelerating on a curve
  • Increases stability by revolving the outside rear wheel faster than the others to help the vehicle through a turn
  • By sending 90% of its power to the front end on smooth, straight highways, the system helps you save on gas while improving performance and your driving experience in tough conditions.

What Acura Models Come With AWD?

There are several Acura AWD models that you can sport on Buda roads, however, the only Acura luxury sedan that doesn’t offer this drivetrain is the Acura ILX lineup. Here’s the full list of Acura AWD sedans and SUVs you can find available at our dealership below:

  • Acura TLX AWD
  • Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD®
  • Acura RDX AWD
  • Acura MDX AWD
