Mitsubishi Super All Wheel Control: What is It?
Mitsubishi offers a range of innovative technologies, particularly its vaunted Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC). However, just what is Mitsubishi S-AWC?
This patented system appeared first on the Lancer Evolution in 2007, and it is a modified all-wheel control technology that regulates torque, wheel spin, and brake force to keep you in control.
According to Mitsubishi, S-AWC is a Vehicle Dynamics Control system that helps you maintain control around corners, as you change lanes, and especially on slippery surfaces. The Outlander, Lancer, and Eclipse Cross are some of the vehicles that come with this technology, and the latest versions even offer four different modes of operation. You can switch between AWC ECO, SNOW, NORMAL, and LOCK as you drive.
The AWC ECO feature adjusts torque under the front wheels when you’re driving in normal circumstances, a slight change that saves on gas. The SNOW feature is ideal for ice and snow, while the NORMAL has optimal control for everyday driving. Finally, the LOCK system is for going off-road, and it’s comparable to an advanced 4WD all-terrain system.
The S-AWC system pairs well with components like an Active Center Differential, Active Yaw Control, and Active Stability Control.
Using the latest computer technologies and combining them with performance engineering, Mitsubishi engineers have been able to create some of the best driving technologies around—including S-AWC.
