What is Precision All-Wheel Steer™ (P-AWS®)?

March 26th, 2018 by

2018 TLX

For drivers in Draper looking to drive through Utah snow and other inclement conditions, P-AWS® on models like the 2018 Acura TLX or the 2018 Acura RLX is a great choice. Short for Precision All-Wheel Steer™, this advanced system allows the toe angles of the rear wheels to move independently of the front wheels. Find out why this system makes the TLX a good family vehicle, and test it out at Mike Hale Acura.

Driving with P-AWS® in Snow

If you’re driving around in ice, snow, hail, or other inclement weather conditions, the Acura TLX and the Acura RLX with P-AWS® makes it easier for you to do so safely. That’s because of the increased agility and traction provided by this one-of-a-kind drivetrain. So whether you’re heading into the Wasatch Range or just commuting to work, P-AWS® is there to help you retain traction and stability on the sometimes slippery streets.

P-AWS® Vehicles Among Best Handling Cars

P-AWS® handles better than FWD and other AWS systems in part because the rear wheels’ toe angles are adjustable. This adjustability means the following, on the road:

  • Superior maneuvering
  • Better braking capabilities
  • Smoother lane changes
