Acura celebrates the 15 year anniversary of Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™

Acura has long held a reputation as one of the most celebrated luxury brands when it comes to innovation. In fact, at our Fort Walton Beach, FL Acura dealership, we've served customers from all over Florida who were initially drawn to the Acura brand for its cutting-edge innovations. And recently, Acura marked the 15-year anniversary of one of its most highly praised innovations: Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™.

Available on almost all new Acura models, Super Handling All-Wheel Drive, or SH-AWD® as it's colloquially known, plays a major role in making Acura vehicles some of the most dynamic luxury cars on the road…even though it's not something most drivers will see or interact with on a daily basis.

Now, most folks know SH-AWD® for its exceptional handling in snowy conditions, but we don't see too much of the white stuff down here in Sunny Fort Walton Beach, so you may be wondering, "Why should I care about it?" Well, while it may be great for icy road conditions, it's just as good for injecting a little excitement into your daily drives on the perfect road conditions we enjoy here in Florida.

For example, if you're the type of driver who loves a more spirited ride and the thrill of taking corners at speed, you'll appreciate the fact that he Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ system is constantly adjusting its torque distribution to suit your needs. Leveraging an advanced array of sensors, the SH-AWD® system delivers confidence-inspiring power and control right where and when you need it most, preventing wheel slippage in rainy road conditions and delivering a feeling of agility to Acura cars that's simply unmatched by many luxury rivals.

Of course, while innovations like Acura SH-AWD® have been a defining factor that's set Acura cars apart from the competition for over 15 years now, the team at Acura is always chasing that next big paradigm shift when it comes to tech. So, if you'd like to find out more about how Acura is changing the game when it comes to automotive performance and technology, and see some of the fresh features our new Acura models have in store firsthand, stop in to Tim Smith Acura to test drive some of the new Acura models we have in store today!
