2018 Acura TLX driving

If you’re looking for better handling from your next vehicle near West Hartford, consider visiting Acura of Avon to experience an Acura vehicle with P-AWS® technology, the auto industry’s first drivetrain of its kind. P-AWS® is designed to improve handling in a variety of road and weather conditions.

What Exactly is P-AWS®?

Precision All-Wheel Steer™ is an AWS system that lets the rear wheels adjust their toe angles separately from one another. Acura models equipped with this drivetrain are able to perform better in a range of different driving situations, such as:

  • Smoother and more precise lane changes
  • Greater stability when braking
  • Enhanced maneuvering on narrow streets

Which Models Come with P-AWS®?

Precision All-Wheel™ Steer is available on the top two sedans in the new Acura lineup:

  • 2018 Acura TLX – In addition to P-AWS®, the new TLX offers complimentary performance options, including a 206-hp 2.4L four-cylinder engine, as well as an available 290-hp 3.5L V6 engine.
  • 2018 Acura RLX – Acura’s flagship luxury sports sedan features a standard 3.5L V6 engine that generates 310 hp and comes paired with a new 10-speed automatic transmission.

P-AWS® with Agile Handling Assist

Complimenting P-AWS®, Acura models offer the Agile Handling Assist system, which uses parts of the vehicle’s Vehicle Stability Assist™ system to correct driver oversteer and understeer by strategically applying braking on sharp turns.
