I-ACTIV AWD®

Driver Intent

DRIVER INTENT

The i-ACTIV AWD® system uses numerous sensors to determine the driver's intentions. Is the driver intending to accelerate? How sharply is the steering wheel turned? How much pressure is on the brakes? These and other considerations are taken into account, and determine how the system reacts in order to achieve optimum control.

Promo on Road

ROAD CONDITIONS

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. As a result, the system knows if it's snowing or raining, if the road is slippery, if the driver is on a hill or attempting to turn. This enables the i-ACTIV AWD® system to accurately predict when slippage will occur.

Slip Protection

SLIP PROTECTION

i-ACTIV AWD® is designed to send just enough torque to the rear wheels to prevent slippage from occurring. By doing this, it provides the traction associated with all-wheel drive, while minimizing the impact on fuel consumption.

Calculation

CALCULATION

An ideal split of torque between the front and rear wheels is achieved through the i-ACTIV AWD® command module's innovative 200-times-per-second calculations, allowing for quick and responsive reactions that ensure a better, controlled drive.

Response

RESPONSE

Direction from the command module lets the i-ACTIV AWD® system apply the required torque to the wheels to deliver an exceptionally stable driving experience with better control over acceleration, turns, breaking and slippage.
