S-AWC VS AWD
What’s The Difference Between: S-AWC vs AWD
Whether driving on the slick winter roads in downtown Edmonton, or off-roading somewhere outside the city, Four-Wheel Drive (4X4), or All-Wheel Drive (AWD) are becoming increasingly necessary to everyday driving. Mitsubishi knows this, and thus created a super all-wheel drive technology to help mitigate risk and elevate the control you have on rough road conditions. This technology is what makes vehicles like the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander, and the 2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross some of the safest and more controlled vehicles on the road or on the track. That technology is the Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC).
What makes S-AWC better than your typical AWD?
S-AWC, which is an advanced form of Mitsubishi’s AWC system, uses a Yaw rate feedback control system to simultaneously control left-right torque vectoring, acceleration, deceleration, steady driving, and cornering at top speeds. While your normal AWD systems utilize a more archaic and baseline variation of using all four wheels, S-AWC integrates a variety of computer and mechanical technology to aid with the overall control and balance between wheels. Systems such as Active Center Differential (ACD), Active Stability Control (ASC), and a new sport Anti-lock Brake system helps maintain control and slow down brake times. Super All-wheel drive is the intelligent way to do AWD.
What S-AWC does best is give the driver and passenger peace of mind and the utmost confidence while driving in the worst possible conditions. It’s the necessary saviour to the necessary evil that is Edmonton winter roads.
