How Does Honda AWD Work?

A vehicle equipped with traditional AWD employs a mechanical system to transition from two-wheel drive to all-wheel drive, and there will typically be a lag before all wheels are engaged. How does Honda AWD work? The Honda Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ can detect when the wheels are losing traction and will engage the rear differential with a multi-plate clutch system that makes the transition from two-wheel drive to all-wheel drive virtually instantaneous. Honda AWD is not only more responsive, it also minimizes the energy needed to drive your Honda, helping you to save gas on the roads in and around Yorba Linda.

Which Honda Models Have AWD? 

The following Honda models are currently available with AWD:

Note that the HR-V and CR-V are offered with Honda Real Time AWD, while the Passport, Pilot, and Ridgeline feature the optional Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ All-Wheel Drive (AWD) System. Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ works similarly to Real Time AWD in that it senses how much torque is needed for each wheel axle and will continuously adjust distribution in order to provide traction to the wheels that need it most.
