Precision All-Wheel Steering System
Precision All-Wheel Steer System

Today’s vehicles contain more and more innovative features and functionality, but some manufacturers are going one step further. Japanese premium car manufacturer Acura has developed an all-wheel-drive system that gives the driver even more flexibility and adds precision as all wheels work in harmony.

Acura Plus Blainville on Montreal’s North Shore, near Laval, Boisbriand, Sainte-Thérèse, Terrebonne and Saint-Jérôme, is a dealership that knows Acura vehicles inside out. In this blog, we introduce you to this traction precision system from Acura.

Acura Precision System

Acura’s Precision All-Wheel Steering system (or P-AWS) is the first system capable of independently adjusting the toe-in angle of the rear wheels, allowing fully independent rear steering, which gives both ease and precision.

When the front wheels are steered, the rear wheels can automatically swivel up to 1.8 degrees in the same direction for smooth, stable and fast lane changes. Alternatively, the rear wheels can also turn slightly in the opposite direction (in reverse phase) as the front wheels to help turn the vehicle around the bend, providing greater reach. Combined with Vehicle Stability Assist (also known as VSA) and the Agile Handling Assist system, which applies the brakes to the front and rear inner wheels to help turn the car further in a curve, the P-AWS helps improve handling and control, leading to what Acura describes as “exceptional stability”. In short, depending on speed, the angle of the rear wheels varies slightly to help manoeuvre through tight corners, make lane changes easier and provide greater braking stability.

When it comes to day-to-day handling, many buyers are starting to look for all-wheel-drive cars. Those who drive their vehicle on the track have long noticed that the transmission contributes to stability. All four tires work to maintain traction, but it can also mean a significant drop in fuel economy. Many buyers may have noticed that Acura models that appear to have front-wheel drive are listed as P-AWS, which improves handling, agility and handling without using extra fuel, thanks to this advanced technology.

Acura’s P-AWS all-wheel drive system ensures greater precision and also works during braking. When the brakes are applied at high speeds, the rear wheels tilt inward to increase both stability and braking ability. At lower speeds, reverse steering can also help the car manoeuvre in tight spaces and reduce its turning circle.

In the end, both the all-wheel-drive system and the braking system ensure you get the precision you need. The Acura TLX and its sister model, the new TLX, offer you all these advantages. And the same goes for all of the Japanese brand’s SUVs and sports sedans.
