While you’re on the road, i-Activ AWD® is constantly tracking road conditions and small changes in wheel speeds. Using sensors, road conditions and more are tracked and taken into account. i-Activ AWD® interprets the information from the sensors and can make adjustments to the amount of torque allocated to the front and rear axles.

What is the Front-Wheel Slip-Warning Detection System?

The Front-Wheel Slip-Warning Detection System also uses a variety of sensors to monitor ground speed and front-wheel speed, allowing the system to sense tiny wheel slips that could lead to tire spin. Torque Control System works closely with Front-Wheel Slip-Warning and i-Activ AWD®. Even in FWD mode, it almost instantaneously transfers a small amount of torque to the rear wheels and helps your vehicle switch to AWD without lag.
