Published on May 31 2017

Consumers looking for a luxury vehicle are increasingly demanding, and automakers know this very well.

Consumers looking for a luxury vehicle are increasingly demanding, and automakers know this very well. That's why we are entitled to an array of new technologies found in modern premium models that not only improve performance but also fuel economy. After all, consumers no longer want to have to compromise, and manufacturers must continue to innovate. Take, for example, Acura's SH-AWD Sport Hybrid technology.

Sport Hybrid SH-AWD: a unique hybrid engine

Acura's Sport Hybrid SH-AWD technology is obviously a hybrid engine, but its configuration makes it unique. Unlike many other hybrid systems currently available on the market, Acura has a gasoline engine and three electric motors.

Two of the electric motors propel the rear wheels while the gasoline engine takes care of the front wheels. This configuration allows Acura models that are equipped with the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system to enjoy the added stability and safety that comes with all-wheel drive when facing tough road conditions.

The result is improved stability coupled with impressive performance. There are three Acura models available today that feature the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system.

Three new Acura models equipped with the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system

When we offer a system as advanced as Acura's SH-AWD Sport Hybrid, we want to make sure it is offered on as many models as possible. That's why Acura offers its Sport Hybrid system on three models, the MDX luxury SUV, the Acura RLX, and the legendary Acura NSX.

In all three cases, performance will push you into your seat while fuel economy numbers will surprise you every time. In the 2017 Acura NSX, for example, the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system allows the car to reach 100 km/h in just 3.0 seconds.
