Applicable in the Outlander PHEV, Super All Wheel Control is an integration of several advanced technologies that together take full advantage of the engine’s power. The Active Front Differential (AFD) distributes engine power between left and right on the front axle. Active Stability Control (ASC) helps keep the vehicle on its intended path when cornering and the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) along with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) improves control and stability under hard braking. Applicable in the Outlander PHEV, this integrated control system delivers incredible traction, solid stability and intuitive, linear handling. This ensures the optimal driving experience even on challenging terrain by optimally combining Active Stability and Traction Control (ASC) with electronically controlled Twin Motor 4WD and AYC (Active Yaw Control).
Mitsubishi Motors brings the same quality to all of its 4WD vehicles, including the Mitsubishi Outlander. They now possess the same level of startability and handling as full-blown 4WDs such as the jeep – the first Mitsubishi 4WD. Mitsubishi takes into consideration the size and use of each vehicle in order to implement the most appropriate 4WD system.
The electronically controlled 4WD system comes in three modes, chosen according to the driver’s preferences and the driving conditions. The front and rear torque distribution mechanism uses electronically controlled coupling to distribute the torque between the front and rear wheels appropriately at all times with feedforward control, based on the accelerator pedal position, vehicle speed, vehicle driving conditions and the operation by the driver. Furthermore, it ensures outstanding traction performance while at the same time and eliminates the tight corner braking phenomenon characteristic of 4WDs.
Drivers can switch between 4WD auto mode, 4WD lock mode and 2WD mode instantly and while driving the vehicle. All that is required is a single touch of the drive mode selector dial on the console.
