AWD Vehicles - Winter Wondercars

#Audi, #TL

Acura's top sedan, the RL, has always come standard with all-wheel drive. The TL gained an all-wheel-drive model with its 2009 redesign. The TL SH-AWD also has a larger, more powerful V-6 engine than the front-wheel-drive TL. The "SH" in TL SH-AWD stands for "Super Handling," which denotes Acura's torque-vectoring active rear differential technology. It can send engine torque not only to the front or rear wheels but also to one specific rear wheel or the other, which aids even dry-road cornering. The same system is on the RL as well.
