i-ACTIV AWD Technology
Of course, one of the things that really makes this SUV stand out is its i-ACTIV AWD, an all-wheel-drive system that truly makes the most of the available technology. In this computerized system, the computer automatically checks road conditions no less than 200 times per second. It also helps adjust automobile performance accordingly, based on those calculations. More specifically, the system is designed to assess driver input and then accurately interpret it help to maintain both control and performance. As such, it monitors things like input from the steering wheel, gas and brake pedals in order to help the driver maintain superior control. In addition, it also monitors outside conditions so that it can sense what the weather is doing along with the type of terrain the driver is traveling over. Its sole purpose for monitoring all of these parameters is to prevent slippage while maximizing both performance and fuel efficiency. This produces a safe ride without forcing the driver to give up the things that make driving it appealing in the first place.
