Is the Honda HR-V AWD?

2020 Honda HR-V Touring

If you’ve been eyeing a top SUV like the Honda HR-V then you might be wondering: “Is the Honda HR-V AWD?” The answer is yes! While most of the lineup’s trim levels first offer Union drivers standard front-wheel-drive capabilities, they can upgrade their configuration with and available Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ that offers better control and traction no matter where the road takes you. Learn more about how you can improve your commute with a smoother ride and better handling with the Honda HR-V AWD system from the automotive experts at VIP Honda.


Real-Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™

What makes the Honda HR-V stand on its own is its Real-Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ which adds a rear differential to vehicles with front-wheel drive. If you lose traction on the road, the rear differential is engaged via a multi-plate clutch system which applies an equal amount of torque to all four wheels. Since all wheels are being powered, your “Intelligent Control” ensures that there is no lagging when your differential is engaged. Your Intelligent Control System also makes things much easier than a traditional mechanical system as it uses an electric motor on the transmission to deliver power. This enables you to have better grip and traction no matter if you’re offroading or making your way through heavy snow or rain.

What Are the Honda HR-V AWD Models?

To meet the needs of every South Plainfield driver, the Real-Time AWD System is available throughout the entire Honda HR-V lineup, so no matter if you’re looking for a standard Honda HR-V LX AWD SUV, or want to upgrade to a Honda HR-V Sport AWD SUV, you can take advantage of everything this drivetrain has to offer. Furthermore, you’ll be supported by additional performance specs and features to provide a smooth and stable ride. These include:

  • 1.8L 4-cylinder engine
  • 13.2-gallon fuel tank capacity
  • 141 horsepower
  • Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Sport Mode
  • Dual-Mode Paddle Shifters
