Can an Acura Drive in Snow?

Absolutely. The previously mentioned Acuras are good in winter because they feature Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®). This drivetrain actively distributes power to the front and rear wheels. When it detects wheel slippage, it sends the optimum amount of torque to the wheel that needs it in order to intelligently maximize traction for unique road conditions. In fact, Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) can feature a snow mode, which perfectly adapts the torque distribution of your traction to maintain a snug grip on snow-covered roads.
