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

October 10th, 2018 by

2019 Acura TLX Rear

The Acura Precision All-Wheel Steer™ (P-AWS®) system, featured on the 2019 Acura TLX or the 2019 Acura RLX, is a great choice for Niles or Chicago area drivers who have to deal with extreme Midwest winter road conditions. This advanced system enables the toe angles of the rear wheels to move independently of the front wheels, providing superior control and more confident handling, no matter how harsh the weather may be. Find out more in this guide from McGrath Acura of Downtown Chicago.

P-AWS® vs. Winter Road Conditions

Ice, snow, hail, and other inclement weather conditions can make driving hazardous, but the Acura TLX and the Acura RLX with P-AWS® provide an extra level of control and safety. The increased agility and traction provided by this one-of-a-kind drivetrain will give you the confidence you need. Whether you’re heading up to Illinois Beach State Park or just commuting to work, P-AWS® is there to help you maintain the stability and control you need on the sometimes slippery streets in and around Riverside.

P-AWS® Vehicles Provide Superior Handling

The adjustable toe angles of the rear wheels is what allows P-AWS® to handle better than FWD and other AWS systems. With P-AWS® you can count on:

  • Superior maneuvering
  • Better braking capabilities
  • Smoother lane changes
