Superior control is a must when driving in Alberta, no matter the season. And with the world’s most advanced four-wheel drive system in Mitsubishi’s S-AWC system, there will be few environments you can’t conquer. The Super All-Wheel Control system builds upon the base All-Wheel Control system by adding additional torque vectoring and brake forces to provide even more security and control. Mitsubishi has forever been a leader in ensuring drivers ride in confidence, thanks to the superior capability of their four-wheel drive systems, notably the S-AWC.

Mitsubishi S-AWC Driver Select Modes
Depending on your vehicle, the S-AWC system gives you varying modes that adapt best to the road conditions underneath. On the Eclipse Cross, enjoy AUTO, which gives you balanced control, SNOW, providing increased traction and GRAVEL, delivering the maximum amount of traction. The Outlander GT S-AWC has a 4-wheel drive ECO mode, which gives torque to the rear wheels, over basic 2-wheel efficiency, NORMAL, with balanced control, SNOW, with improved traction and LOCK, which gives maximum traction over every wheel. On the Outlander PHEV you’re provided two drive mode options, with either NORMAL or LOCK. S-AWC isn’t one-size-fits-all, it gives you plenty of modes to best suit your situation.
Mitsubishi S-AWC Features
Mitsubishi S-AWC has a couple prime features that outline the superiority of this four-wheel drive system. Active Front Differential (AFD), only available on the Outlander GT S-AWC, detects over or under-steering and then limits the differential speed between the front left and right wheels. This helps you better maneuver around corners and stay in control all the way. Active Yaw Control (AYC) monitors any additional force on the wheels, using the anti-lock braking system (ABS) to manage both speed and traction to corner, brake and accelerate in less-than-favourable conditions. The intelligent system of the Super All-Wheel Control is working at all times, to give you the ultimate in control, stability and peace-of-mind.
