2019 Honda HR-V silver

The 2020 Honda HR-V is a great choice if you’re looking for a reliable SUV to upgrade your Watford City and Dickinson commute. While the HR-V comes with standard 2WD capabilities, you can have the power and strength you need to take on the elements with the Honda HR-V AWD models. Learn more about how the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ works along with other great performance features with the automotive experts at Ryan Honda.

What Is Real Time AWD?

Drivers who choose the Honda HR-V can upgrade their vehicle with the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™. This system adds a rear differential to vehicles with front-wheel drive and can benefit drivers in several ways. When you lose traction, the rear differential is engaged via a multi-plate clutch system which distributes torque to all four wheels as opposed to just two wheels. The “Intelligent Control” component of this system also removes the lag associated with traditional all-wheel drive systems when the rear wheels are engaged and leverages an electric motor to deliver power to the transmission.

Honda HR-V AWD Performance Specs

When you opt for the Honda HR-V with AWD you can take advantage of its dependable 27 city mpg/31 hwy mpg* rating to keep you moving whether you’re around town or far from home. This strong fuel economy rating is due to the model’s strong engine configuration, transmission, and other performance specs all designed with efficiency in mind. Take a look at the Honda HR-V LX performance specs, below:
