just to clarify acura sh awd is now the honda iVTM-4, which means everyone should buy the honda badge for cheaper
well at least in the case of the pilot.
Acura SH-AWD: A Comprehensive Analysis (Updated Jan.8, 2016) - YouWheel.com - Car News and Review
audi/vw awd whatever, varies by car model and trim so you can get the good quattro
or the 4motion of fun
Audi all wheel drive explained | awd cars, 4x4 vehicles, 4wd trucks, 4motion, quattro, xDrive, SH-AWD, Haldex, Torsen, wiki - How it works
As for mazda lets all get real its marketing. every suv cuv or whatever has been pushing the awd,
4wd, intelligent awd, ......... real hard, hell hyundai offers the ultimate awd thats a santa fe turbo 2.0t
with the ultimate package.
this is where i say yes bro, I am mad. A good percentage of vehicles with the awd badge
is simply marketing lets not even talk about the fact that some are awd until you exceed 20mph then
the system shuts off because really who defines what the meaning of awd is. Its like bill clinton's
definition of sex, you can change the meaning of a word or play so many angles its often quite amusing.
Returning to mazda, I can't wait to see them backup their so far unsubstantiated claims until then its all
noise, and as for the crosstrek tests and etc, there are plenty of videos of audi dealerships trolling bmw xdrive
and vice versa. They all do it and all use the test where their car will outperform the competition.
So every car brand's dealership, posts inflammatory nonsense videos; only real world data can
truly prove a car's awd capability. I can tell there are plenty of acura rdx drivers who
are not thrilled with acura when the sh awd got replaced by the cheaper honda intelligent awd
and they got to feel the thrill of an inferior system in their luxury car, same goes for the quattro badge game.
Really if mazda wants to get ahead they should start with the massive rust issues which clearly they
have not fixed for the last 5 years or more. Car looks great and all but much like an FCA vehicle the salt
belt will not be kind. Subaru use to have this issue as well and have taken significant steps to rectify
this, just creep under your vehicle once in a while.
