Simply amazing.... almost no oversteer or understeer. Very very smart system. Leave it to Honda to innovate the best AWD system.

On that note, their diesel in the euro accord is also a great design.

Everyone has to catch up now.

Watch the video on the SH-AWD system. Look at that Inspire (accord) go.

You think companies who have AWD design for years would've designed something like this already.

Mitsubishi's Super AYC is still the world's most advance AWD system, IMO.


Honda had 4WS (4-wheel steering) on the Prelude as well, it definitely works. You don't see them using it in their cars now do you?

O/T: are those the stock taillights for that Honda Accord Sedan?

Those tail lights are the JDM Inspire. To me it looks like the trunk portion of the North American Accord is simply removed.

It is making production. It is going to be equipped in the next Acura RL (Honda Legend).

Ekam: Can you explain that Super AYC system for me?

Looks cool.

I would love to see if that really makes it to production.

damn, i love stuff like that. too bad toyota didn't come up with it first, but at least it was a japanese company. makes me wonder why they didn't vary torque to all 4 wheels? like, going into a left hander, have the left front has the least, the right front and left rear have about the same, and have the right rear has the most. must be a reason, either it doesn't matter to handling, or it was too complicated to be worth it.
