When you take on Lynn roads behind the wheel of your next Honda SUV, you want to have a vehicle that provides stable and secure handling to help easily navigate any terrain. So, you might be wondering: is the Honda HR-V AWD? In fact, it is. While you can first take advantage of standard front-wheel drive on the first four trim levels of this crossover lineup, you can upgrade to all-wheel drive on any model, and enjoy the luxury of having it already available if you prefer the Honda Pilot Touring trim package. Learn more about how the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ is integrated into popular options like the Honda HR-V LX AWD SUV or the Honda HR-V Sport AWD SUV, then shop for a new Honda crossover SUV of your own at Honda North.

Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™

What makes your Honda HR-V’s available drivetrain stand above the rest is its available Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™. This unique performance feature upgrades the standard front-wheel drive performance you’ll get on Newburyport roads with a rear differential that provides better control to your vehicle’s back tires if you lose traction. If you’re driving on rough roads or through difficult weather conditions, your rear differential will be engaged via a multi-plate clutch system that provides ample torque to all four wheels instead of just two. The Intelligent Control feature leverages an electric motor that works with your transmission to deliver power and makes sure there is no lag when your rear wheels are engaged, so you can count on a seamless performance no matter where the road takes you.

What are the Honda HR-V AWD Models?

Any configuration offers customers the opportunities to take advantage of the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ with their HR-V. Customers can enjoy the standard trim level with improved traction on the Honda HR-V LX AWD SUV or find an improved ride plus plenty of other exciting features with the Honda HR-V Sport AWD SUV, or any other model. Not to mention, you’ll have additional performance features that enhance your vehicle’s capabilities, like the Honda Eco Assist System, which monitors your driving habits and makes suggestions on how you can save more on your fuel consumption.
