How SH-AWD works: Acura's AWD system explained
Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB Who is Alex? Find out here! http://vid.io/xqoF Have you been wondering how the Acura SH-AWD system differs from other "Haldex style" AWD systems? In this video I explain how Super Handling All Wheel Drive differs from Audi's Quattro, BMW's x-Drive and the other transverse AWD systems on the market. Aside from the fact that Honda/Acura doesn’t have a RWD drivetrain to borrow, the benefit main benefit to a transverse engine layout is improved interior packaging. “Super Handling All Wheel Drive” may not have been the best name for the system, but it is arguably the best AWD system you can tack onto a transverse FWD platform. The systems used by Infiniti, Lexus, Volvo, Lincoln and just about everyone out there that had an AWD system tacked onto a transaxle has no center differential. Instead the power flows from the final gearset of the transmission to the front diff and the rear diff via gears at a fixed 1:1 ratio. Between this gear arrangement and the rear diff is a clutch pack that allows the car to connect, disconnect or have a varied connection between the transmission and rear axles. When fully connected the power is split 50/50 assuming all wheels have traction. SH-AWD also uses the same arrangement but adds a unique differential unit in the rear that does two things. First, it has a gearset to “speed up” the rear wheels so that when they are connected, they spin 1.7% faster than the fronts. (The old RL used a variable ratio system but it is no longer used.) Next it has a torque vectoring unit that is capable of slitting power 100:0/0:100 left to right. In a straight line, “overdriving” the rear wheels gives the MDX a more RWD feel than otherwise possible and in corners the system is capable of sending up to 70% of the power to the outside rear wheel helping the MDX’s cornering manners and masking the “plowing” tendencies normal in a front heavy car. For 2014 Acura took this a step further and uses a system to brake wheels selectively to improve neutral handling. This is beyond stability control because the system is always active rather than active only when things are going pear-shaped.

Thankfully, the company has done a great job with refining the look to bring back customers scared away by the controversial styling. Once you get past the exterior, you will find a comfortable, roomy, refined, and tech laden cabin that will have most shoppers quite impressed. If you are in the market for a spacious, sport luxury sedan with strong value, this TL should be at the top of your list.

Acura SH AWD is the best
this is the best video I have seen describing SH AWD, this is an amazing system pioneered by honda, it makes the ordinary driver has a good control of the car. Most of old racing school drivers know how to work with rear wheel cars only, they do not seem to understand this system well or may biased against it. Anyway this is the best system in the market (thank you for 67k views and 102 likes 2-12-14)

Video Tour of 2014 Acura TL Tech in Bellanova White Pearl
A video Review Tour of the 2014 Acura TL Tech in Bellanova White Pearl for Exterior with Ebony Interior Sports Sedan. This the the last year that Acura is making the TL. The new TL will be combined with the TSX called TLX for 2015 Model Year. Since I'm both a TSX and TL fan, I decided to opt for the TL so I'm making this video to highlight my new sports car. Please note the windows are tinted 50% front and 20% rear. This vehicle with the V6 engine FWD outputs 280HP with torque at 254@5000rpm. The ride is very firm and handling is it's strengths. I'm able to achieve 23.5mpg with city/highway driving. The handling is more firm and stable compared to Honda Accord V6. It's more roomy than the Infiniti G37 sedan. It handles way better than the Lexus ES350. I'll give you a tour of the exterior and interior as well as show you the engine bay and trunk. All minor issues with the paint and garnish are taken care by Acura and outside body shop now. This vehicle is classified as a mid-size luxury sedan. Long live Acura TL. Please check it out the video.
