Acura will unveil its all-wheel drive Super Handling (SH-AWD) this week. For this, the brand chose the upcoming Chicago Motor Show.

The SH-AWD system was tested 16 years ago on the 2005 RL full-size sedan. Over time, five of the six current Acura models received branded four-wheel drive of the brand. These are TLX and RLX sports sedans, RDX and MDX crossovers, and the NSX supercar. Now the SH-AWD system has received the fourth generation in a row. One of the main features of SH-AWD technology is the use of torque vectoring, which guarantees more accurate and predictable handling characteristics on any road. Also, with its help, you can count on an additional rotation speed, which helps to pull the car in a corner.

The 2020 compact Acura RDX crossover features the latest generation SH-AWD. In addition, the Japanese have developed an upgraded Sport Hybrid SH-AWD electronic system that feels great on the NSX, RLX and MDX. She works in tandem with a pair of electric motors.

 The Japanese automaker chose the Chicago auto show to once again remind the world of its once revolutionary development, especially since Acura cars are loved in the US.

Thus, according to the foreign portal Carscoops, only in Illinois, sales of cars with AWD today account for almost 80% of all Acura sales. For comparison, in the whole country, experts record a figure of 55.7%.
