Yes! The 2018 Honda CR-V has AWD as an option. Each trim level has the available upgrade to have the AWD powertrain for your South Plainfield commute. This compact SUV goes all out providing a top-of-the-line All Wheel Drive system for drivers. Learn more about this system and how to get it at VIP Honda.

What is the Real Time AWD System?

Honda offers a Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ in each Honda CR-V trim level that assists in giving drivers better control on the Union roads. This system works by:

  • Sending power to the rear wheels when climbing hills, etc, for better traction
  • Reacting quickly to regain traction lost due to severe road conditions
  • Enhancing stability by redistributing torque between the front and rear while turning

This drivetrain is built to give you the confidence you need when taking to the streets. With this AWD system, you’ll have better traction and more control in your hands while behind the wheel of the new Honda CR-V.

Is It Worth It?

In the end, you’ll be glad you have the AWD drivetrain. Though it requires a few more stops for gas, this model maintains a pretty high fuel economy. This system helps out when dealing the rough patches of the harsher winter months when you need it most. Having the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ at your disposal will prove itself to be a great convenience on any adventure you take especially when the road conditions worsen because of the coming winter.
