Features of the SH-AWD Acura System

So, how does the SH-AWD system help distinguish the Acura TLX model from others in its class? The SH-AWD system simultaneously manages traction availability, driver input, weight distribution, and other factors to constantly provide effortless transitions from different power levels and move like an acrobat. Essentially, this kind of multitasking allows you to take on the Chamblee, GA roads whether you’re driving on dry road conditions or wet and rough weather conditions.


The SH-AWD system doesn’t just improve performance, but it also helps save fuel. When driving in a straight line, about 90% of the power is sent to the front wheels to help preserve fuel. About 45% of the power is directed to the rear wheels as the weight shifts during acceleration so that it can take advantage of additional traction. 


If you’re hitting a curve while accelerating at a rapid rate, then the SH-AWD system directs 70% of the torque to the rear wheels, including the outside wheel, allowing you to take on those sharp corners like a pro. The SH-AWD system also revolves the outside wheel up to 2.7% faster than the other wheels, which reduces understeer and increases stability. Experience everything that the Acura TLX SH-AWD can do when you visit Ed Voyles Acura for a test drive.
