New Hyundai Models with AWD

While we’re already in the throngs of winter, it’s still a great time to shop for an AWD vehicle. Here’s a quick look at what SUVs come available with the Hyundai version of AWD:

  • Hyundai Santa Fe AWD: Thanks to the available Active Cornering Control AWD, the Santa Fe offers superior traction and control as you take corners at higher speeds. Thanks to this intelligence AWD system, your engine torque is transferred to rear wheels while applying braking force to the inside rear wheel. You’ll notice this really helps you out when the road is extra slick and slippery.
  • Hyundai Santa Fe Sport AWD: The smaller version of the Santa Fe, this crossover similarly utilizes the Active Cornering Control AWD. For an everyday vehicle that’s ideal for both commuting and family driving, you’ll appreciate this extra level of traction and control, which, of course, combines with your smart and safe driving habits.
  • Hyundai Tucson AWD: Another compact SUV, the Tucson features an upgraded suspension system which pairs nicely with Active Cornering Control AWD to provide a quiet and smooth ride for normal driving conditions. This also will kick in to keep you safe during the roughest weather that you may occasionally need to tackle.

While now its own separate brand, you’ll still find some Hyundai Genesis, or Genesis G80 sedans here in Springfield. These come available with a special HTRAC AWD system, which adjusts to certain road condition and weather patterns.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Hyundai models have AWD?

  • Hyundai Tucson
  • Hyundai Santa Fe
  • Hyundai Santa Fe Sport
  • Hyundai Genesis and Genesis G80

What is HTRAC?

An exclusive technology from Hyundai Motor, this kind of AWD, found in previous Hyundai Genesis and new Genesis luxury sedan models, is a dynamic way of transferring power and traction to the wheels that need it most, at a moment’s notice. This allows your Genesis to quickly adapt to changing road surfaces or weather conditions.

Are AWD vehicles safer?

Any vehicle is only going to be as safe as the driver is responsible, so it’s important to note that AWD won’t automatically keep you out of harm’s way during bad weather conditions. Where it does improve your safety is when you need to take curves or turns, or when the road is so icy your tires – even winter or studded ones – start to slip. AWD will kick in when you need the power to the wheels that are losing traction, so combined with your safe and smart driving habits, it does help a great deal.
