Confidence in changeable conditions
Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (iAWD) monitors conditions to determine the amount of grip, cornering balance and responsiveness needed when the road (or terrain) is wet, dry or icy. It automatically sends extra power to the front or rear axle as and when needed, ensuring exceptional handling and improved efficiency at all times.

At low speeds the iAWD system concentrates on improving traction to support driveaway and manoeuvring on slippery surfaces, or at high torque levels. For instance, if the front wheels are on ice and the rear ones aren’t, iAWD sends extra torque to the rear, putting power where it’s needed. When you’re driving faster it moves the focus to delivering superb handling and a wonderfully responsive driving experience, while keeping an eye on traction. To do this it monitors the way you are driving and constantly fine-tunes itself.
