Are you about to accelerate? How sharply are you steering? How hard are you braking? i-Activ AWD uses multiple sensors to anticipate your next move and reacts systematically to give you optimum control.
i-Activ AWD constantly monitors exterior temperature, wiper operation, the amount of torque required to turn the front wheels and the load on the engine to know if it’s snowing or raining, if the road is slippery, if you’re driving on a hill or attempting to turn.
By sending the right amount of torque to the rear wheels, i-Activ AWD provides optimum traction to prevent you from slipping in wet conditions while still maximizing fuel efficiency.
i-Activ AWD’s innovative 200-times-per-second calculations determine the ideal torque split between the front and rear wheels, allowing for quick and responsive reactions that ensure a better, more stable drive.
Our engineers studied the way oil moves through gears to reduce mechanical friction — and enhance fuel efficiency.
Our engineers scrutinized the design and materials in every component to reduce the weight of our i-Activ AWD system by 43%.
