A 2020 Honda CR-V with AWD in the snow

All of the 2020 Honda CR-V trim levels can be upgraded with the Honda Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™. Providing enhanced traction and control, this innovative all-wheel drive system can add confidence on Brandon roads. Learn more about how the Honda AWD system works in this guide from Patty Peck Honda.



What is the Real Time AWD System?

A CR-V equipped with the available Honda Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ can provide better control in all kinds of Jackson-area weather and road conditions. The system works by:

  • 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 when turning

This drivetrain is engineered to give you the confidence and control you need on Madison streets and highways.

Is All-Wheel Drive Worth It?

Many drivers agree that all-wheel drive is well worth having. Although it’s true that AWD is slightly less fuel efficient than 2WD, a Honda CR-V with the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ still maintains a respectable EPA estimated MPG. In addition, this innovative all-wheel drive system helps out when you’re driving in the harsher winter months, which is when you’ll need it most. Having the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ at your disposal will prove itself to be a great convenience on any adventure you take, especially when the road conditions worsen because of inclement weather.

What Other CR-V Features Enhance Performance & Safety?

Standard Honda CR-V performance features include Hill Start Assist, Brake Assist, and Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control, all of which contribute to better handling and control. All 2020 Honda CR-V trims also include the Honda Sensing® suite of advanced safety and driver assist systems, including the following features that improve all-around vehicle safety:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow
  • Lane Keeping Assist System
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™
