2015 Honda CR-V Fails AWD Test (w/ Video)

2015 Honda CR-V Fails AWD Test (w/ Video)

The Honda AWD system uses a compact, lightweight and fuel-efficient rear differential. The design requires a certain torque limitation for the device to be able to work effectively in real conditions, but at the same time, it must not exceed the total capacity of the AWD drive. In real conditions, regardless of the surface, there is a certain amount of friction always available for both front and rear wheels. The AWD system benefits therefore torque between front and rear wheels in order to achieve optimal driving force. In the roll test non-existent grip is simulated in the front and maximum grip at the rear. If all the available torque required to move the vehicle forward would be transferred to the rear differential then the limit for the torque of the unit would be exceeded. If the vehicle continues to run in this state (the front wheels spinning and the rear wheels st...
