If you’re in the market for a reliable SUV that can keep you moving and handle any surface, then the 2020 Honda CR-V is an exceptional choice.

What Is the Real Time AWD System?

No matter which Honda CR-V trim level you choose, you can take advantage of the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ which is designed to offer drivers more traction and control so you can handle the elements safely on the road. This works in several ways such as:

  • 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
