South Dakota roads are no stranger to loose gravel and icy, winter weather. That’s why it’s important to have a vehicle with all-wheel drive (AWD), or better yet, Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC). But in a choice between S-AWC vs. AWD which system has more advantages? Join Vern Eide Mitsubishi as we explain S-AWC and you can judge for yourself which drivetrain provides Sioux Falls drivers with more traction and responsive handling.
Perfected after decades of grueling trials on the rally course, Mitsubishi’s available Super All-WheelControl(S-AWC) system is the evolution of 4WD technology. S-AWC improves handling and stability by seamlessly managing the Outlander’s movements during accelerating, cornering, and braking while keeping you comfortable and confident behind the wheel.
We’ve been dedicated to innovation in our four wheel drive systems since 1936, when we introduced the first Japanese car with 4WD. In 2001 we introduced All-Wheel Control (AWC) and more recently the Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) system.
S-AWC offers superior traction in all conditions and helps you drive with the same confidence off-road, as you do on tarmac.
This part of S-AWC uses the tire friction force to create greater traction and to improve cornering performance.
AYC helps the vehicle change direction smoothly and improves cornering performance.
This part of S-AWC regulates the brakes on all four wheels to prevent the wheels from slipping.
Every Mitsubishi SUV model can be outfitted with S-AWC, while the Outlander PHEV actually comes standard equipped with this traction-enhancing system. South Dakota drivers can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that their favorite SUV will keep them safely on the road this winter.
