Best AWD Sedans

For Chicago area drivers, driving a sedan with AWD that can navigate all four seasons is crucial. But not every AWD system is created equally. Acura’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) System is a cut above the rest by providing a better, more refined performance with greater efficiency. The SH-AWD system is available on both the 2019 Acura RLX and the 2019 Acura TLX which Car and Driver says “improves handling” and provides “quicker acceleration and all-weather motivation.”

The 2019 Acura RLX

The luxurious 2019 Acura RLX is a sophisticated sedan with a hybrid engine option that delivers a stellar performance on the road. The RLX Sport Hybrid with SH-AWD utilizes a 3.5L V6 engine along with a 3 motor system to strike that perfect balance between power and efficiency. The entire system will produce up to 377 horsepower and 341 lb-ft of torque. And with impressive fuel economy, drivers will be able to drive for longer distances with less frequent visits to the pump with an EPA estimated 28 city / 29 highway / 28 combined mpg*.

More Performance

The pairing of the hybrid 3 motor system with Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) is a special combination. Two of the motors each operate the rear wheels independently of one another and can redistribute power and torque to the wheels that need it most. It can shoot you out of a corner earlier and accelerate faster as well as give drivers more overall control, even on slippery roads or at top speeds. Plus, it operates at a higher efficiency with electric and hybrid power at the helm.

Inside the RLX

The luxury of the RLX isn’t just on display with it’s refined handling and smooth ride quality. Inside the cabin, you’ll find comfort, technology, and convenience features that make everyday life on the road with the RLX go a lot more smoothly. Some features you can expect to find include:

  • Front Sport Seats with Perforated Milano Premium Leather-Trimmed Interior
  • Heated and Ventilated Front Seats and Heated Rear Outboard Seats
  • GPS-Linked Climate Control
  • Smart Entry

The 2019 Acura TLX

The 2019 Acura TLX is a mid-size luxury sedan that is here to impress with its performance on the road. The SH-AWD comes available when paired with the 3.5L V6 engine over the 2.4L Inline-4 with FWD and P-AWS. With the V6 and SH-AWD drivers benefit from an escalation in power, earning up to 290 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque. Though teeming with athleticism, the TLX SH-AWD doesn’t skimp out on efficiency either with an EPA estimate fuel economy of 20 city / 29 highway / 23 combined mpg*. The engine works in tandem with a 9-speed Automatic Transmission with Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters that will seamlessly and smoothly transfer the power to the wheels while giving drivers the option to go in full manual mode.

More Performance

The SH-AWD in the TLX contributes to its overall sport-tuned performance. By continuously determining the optimum power distribution between the front and rear wheels, the SH-AWD system calibrates based on factors that include speed, steering angle, later G-force, and more. The result is power and stability, whether you’re cornering or cruising. It expertly delivers power while keeping good tractive control with the road.

Inside the TLX

The SH-AWD is available on every package of the TLX—from the entry-level Standard Package to the Technology Package, Advance Package and A-SPEC Package—so drivers can select whatever model is right for them and still get SH-AWD performance.
