Which Acura Vehicles Have Acura AWD?

2021 RDX

Plenty of drivers expect their luxury vehicles to offer sophisticated AWD alongside commanding power and cutting-edge technology. Acura AWD vehicles feature one of the industry’s most forward-thinking systems to bring a thrillingly responsive ride, but which models are available with that level of performance? Simply read on to find out.

Which Models Offer Acura AWD?

Of all current Acura models only the Acura ILX doesn’t offer AWD – it is instead available solely with front-wheel drive (FWD). That’s not a big deal since most compact sedan drivers don’t look for AWD, and you can always look to these further Acura models if AWD is one of your must-haves:

Each one provides AWD either as standard or as an optional feature.

How Does Acura SH AWD Work?

Conventional AWD systems can provide superior all-weather, all-terrain traction to ensure perfect peace of mind whether you’re crossing East Baton Rouge roads through heavy rain or venturing onto light trails outside Ascension.

Acura SH-AWD® (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™) combines that ability with enhanced dry-road performance and handling. It continuously directs engine power to match factors like weight distribution, driver input, and available traction to achieve seamless power transitions.

It can also:

  • Measure power distribution between front and rear wheels based on your wheel’s speed, angle, and yaw rate.
  • Boost fuel economy by directing 90% of power to your front wheels during straight road cruising.
  • Shift weight towards your rear wheels during acceleration for added traction.
  • Direct 70% of torque to the rear outside wheel as weight is shifted when you corner.
  • Boost stability by revolving the outside rear wheel faster than the others when you’re heading through a turn in Livingston.

Acura SH-AWD Sets New Standards for Luxury Vehicles
