The versatile Mitsubishi Outlander comes with a wide range of technologies to improve driving, including the latest infotainment, safety, and performance innovations. For instance, there’s a smart S-AWC ECO Driving Mode, which optimizes efficiency without sacrificing off-road capability.
The Outlander S-AWC ECO Driving Mode uses sensors and computer systems to monitor wheel spin, only applying four-wheel drive when wheel slippage is detected. That means you get the benefit of all-wheel control only when you need it, conserving gas so you’re not stopping for refills as often.
“We created the S-AWC technology with the goal of realizing ‘predictable handling’ and ‘high margin of performance’ at a very high level,” explains Mitsubishi in a press release. In addition to the ECO mode, there’s also Normal, Snow, and Lock modes. Snow is great for slippery surfaces, while the Lock mode lets you stay in 4WD the entire time you’re behind the wheel.
The S-AWC is an Integrated Vehicle Dynamics Control System, as it features advanced technologies to manage driving dynamics, braking, and power based on road conditions. This feature utilizes sub-systems like Active Yaw Control, which can control the brakes and steering to regulate torque.
