What is Acura SH-AWD®?

SH-AWD®, or Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ is Acura’s signature all-wheel drive system. Like other all-wheel drive systems, SH-AWD® boosts your traction on tough Hendersonville road conditions to prevent slipping and sliding. But unlike others on the market, Acura’s SH-AWD® reacts instantly to the changing conditions of the road to optimize performance.

  • Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive™ checks the wheel speed, angle, and yaw rate to determine how much power to give to each wheel.
  • When the roads are clear, the system sends 90% of its power to the front wheels to promote the best fuel economy possible.
  • During acceleration, the system shifts weight toward the rear tires for better handling.
  • On curving roads, the system sends 70% of the available torque to the outside rear wheels to give better acceleration.
  • Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive™ also adjusts the revolutions of each tire to help ease the vehicle through sharper turns.

Which Models Offer Acura SH-AWD®?

While the Acura ILX only offers front-wheel drive at this time, every other vehicle in the Acura lineup offers Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive™. So whether you want a sleek sedan or a spacious SUV, you can find exactly what you need within the Acura lineup.
