Benefits of Lexus AWD

Lexus all-wheel drive utilizes state-of-the-art technology to monitor the performance of each individual wheel. If a wheel begins to slip, the system will reroute the power to two or four wheels to improve traction. In fact, the distribution ratio can go from 50/50 all the way to 30/70 if necessary to optimize handling in tough Lookout Mountain road conditions. And to prevent oversteering and understeering, Lexus AWD even includes Cornering Control.
